Sporting a pair of striped socks or tights is an easy way to make a statement. Styles designed with straight-across horizontal stripes are often worn with costumes around Halloween or for cosplay. Meanwhile, if you’re hoping to make your legs look longer, you’ll want to choose stockings with vertical stripes. With this in mind, we curated a list of some of our favorite striped socks and tights on the market. We included a pair of over-the-knee socks and two full-length styles to suit different preferences. Each pick is made with abrasion-resistant nylon and designed to provide a flattering fit.
