Merry Monday Stylish Friends! Today's post focuses on this year's selection of hosiery, tights, socks, and thigh-highs: it appears it is the most lively and creative ever to grace the glossy pages of fashion mags everywhere. Lets talk Legwear Trends!
Exciting new trends for this fall and winter season center on bold color, sleek design barrowed from the boys, ( houndstooth, plaid, brogues, and wool caps to name a few), but most of all, texture. We see alot of fur and leather. The leather is often perforated, braided, woven or laser cut, and the fur is always, lets say....furry. The bottom line? Texture is the common denominator for the season's liveliest trends. Legwear is no exception: we see hosiery with floral appliques, tights with pearl and crystals embedded, many versions of the classic fishnet, with perhaps the micro fishnet the most broadly appealing. We see legs adorned with stripes, ombre, florals, and op-art prints. It is a veritable feast of options!! Lets take a closer look of these Legwear Trends for 2013:
The outer four pictures are from Accesoriesmagazine.com and these show this trend in an eye-popping way! The middle pics, from top to bottom are: The classic Wolford fishnet paired with booties, my personal favorite, and featured in my opening collage that I designed. You can find them at Polyvore.com for $52.00. The next is clearly Missoni, with a rich heathery purple, and it fetches the sum of $165.00 from pret-a-beaute.com. The bottom middle is also Missoni in an ombre legging, and is $62.00 from Shopbop.com. I did alot of research on this trend and discovered a great selection of very current designs from Sears! Needless to say they are very well priced. Here is a photo summary; visit Sears.com for more, you will be as surprised as I was! Do not forget the sock! It can be ruffly, patterned, or fishnet, too and adds a great layer to your wardrobe, and is especially good for this almost -fall season. The most lush design is from Alexander McQueen, and despite my diligence, I have yet to locate it in a retail outlet; so here is a photo from the runway, located at AlexanderMcQueen.com. This embellished leg attire is opulently "Tough Lux" and therefore classic McQueen: it boldly pushes the envelope as it leads the way for other trendsetters. Legs, are you ready?
