Hosiery, tights and legwear trends for fall 2010

Let your legs do the talking with fall’s quickest way to update your look: hosiery. Virtually every designer styled their runway looks with hosiery, tights or socks in a multitude of chic and wearable combinations. Here are some of our favorite legwear looks worth trying this season:

Textured and Patterned Tights

Add dimension and texture to your look with chic patterned tights and hosiery.

Colored Hosiery

Whether a bold opaque or a sheer wash of color, hosiery in a variety of hues (including white!) hit the runway this season. Wear a contrasting bright leg to amplify your look, or go for a more subtle monochromatic look to appear instantly slimmer.


Ankle and Knee Socks

Perhaps the biggest news this season is the return of ankle socks and knee socks. Worn with heels, platforms and sandals, this sophisticated style is anything but girlish.


Thigh Highs

The thigh’s the limit with this season’s bevy of over-the-knee socks and tights. Flaunt a sexy sliver of bare thigh, or layer your thigh highs over sheer or opaque tights for a more demure look.
