Personally, I am one who simply adores legwear (I pretty much live in knee socks & sheer black stockings)
Some trends in legwear this season include the very popular leather legging, sheer black tights (as seen at Anna Sui, Oscar De La Renta, Chanel, and Lanvin), lace, textured and bright opaque colors.
Legwear is deffinately this seasons must have wardrobe accessory. Below are some of my favorite legwear, ranging from leggings to tights and socks.
These lovely tights are a great deal starting at 10.50. You can also purchase two for 7.50 or three for an outstanding price of only 5.50! They come in a variety of 8 different colors, these are a great cheap season staple all you fashionistas should add to your wardrobe! These can be found here Alloy Opaque Tights
My favorite leg accessory of all time, has to be the "leather" legging. These have been seen on everyone from MaryKate Olsen to Victoria Beckham. The reason I love these so much is their versatility. They can be dressed up with heels for a more polished look or dressed down with a white tee and sneakers for a casual look.
