Girls, what makes you prefer to wear knee highs (below the knee) instead of normal socks?

I see the reason why a girl would choose to wear pantyhose: either it's too cold for bare legs or it makes a nice combination with her skirt/dress/shoes.

But very often, even below long pants and boots (so completely covered) girls prefer to wear knee highs like on the pic instead of the classic polyester or cotton socks.

Given that they'll ruin so much quicker than socks, what would make you prefer them over socks?

    • So would you wear them as socks, under a short dress or skirt?
      I thought ladies generally wore these under long trousers... generally when you see the top of a ladies knee highs (I don't mean garter belt stockings, see picture) that's seen a a turn-off...

    • I highly doubt this

    • I don't wear socks either unless I have soccer practice or a game. Socks are uncomfortable for me. When it's hot, they soak up sweat and start to rub my heels all the wrong ways.

  • In winter they're warm, and I like how they look on me.

    • Haha, stupid me but I'd assume that, since they look so thin they keep little of your body heath "inside"... but you'll forgive me, as a guy I've never worn them :-(
      Not even secretly those from mom when I was a guy haha :-)

    • Oh sorry, look at the pic... I mean the thin nylon ones. I was just wondering why a girl would wear them, since probably after 4-5 wearings or so they'll have runs (ladders). Whereas a normal cotton or polyester sock would last much longer.
      Especially since girls sometimes wear them under long trousers & boots, invisible.
      The other GAG'ers (below) clarified they're light and comfortable to wear... something that obviously as a guy I cannot know haha :-)

    • Okay, then we meant two different things.

  • lol as Camifunkyballet said and it's light not heavy so it works really well on any thing it"s more easy too

    • Thanks for adding that! Other girls mentioned the potential to wear them with shorts and also the fact they were lighter and easier to wear than regular socks.
