From Heidi Klum's Tall Boots to Eva Longoria's Ultra High Socks

 - May 18, 2009   Updated: May 2 2011
Thigh-high fashion has been seen on everyone from Rihanna to Eva Longoria to Heidi Klum. The over-the-knee look came into style about a year and a half ago, starting with boots and thigh-high fashion socks.

This cluster shows an assortment of some of the most innovative, edgy and daring thigh-high fashions seen over the last few years.

Implications - Even though sex sells, covering up doesn't always mean sacrificing that sort of appeal. High boots and socks are extremely popular in the fashion world because they show that you don't always have to expose your skin to look hot. When it comes to fashion, brands should try to market this type of style as a way to inform the younger audience that wearing less doesn't necessarily increase attractiveness.
