Let Your Legs Shine

Metallics are in fashion this Fall/Holiday, especially when it comes to dressing the leg. Knee High Socks, Thigh High Socks, and Tights that have anywhere from a glimmer of sparkle to the full on dipped in glitter look are a trend that you can have a lot of fun with. Women's Wear Daily recently featured a front page story on the fashion trend including various shimmery styles from different legwear designers, and how to wear the look:

StockinGirl's fabulous Gold Glitter Thigh High Socks were featured, a gold and black sparkly ribbed thigh high, finished with an adorable black ruffle top band at the top of each sock. If you are looking for a more subtle shimmery look, try these Shimmery Lace Top Thigh Highs which come in 5 great color choices. If you want to have something really unique, try Printed Sparkle Tights, or Sparkle Fishnet Pantyhose. For a more sophisticated legwear choice, try these Brocade Sparkle Thigh Highs, also in Black Sparkle. If you want a lof of shine on your leg and not so much sparkle, try these Ultra Shiny Opaque Thigh Highs.

Spring Trend: Ballerina Inspired Fashions

The windows this week at Henri Bendel on 5th Avenue declared a major trend for Spring: Ballerina inspired fashions. The windows displayed beautiful lightweight and loose fitting chiffon and jersey dresses and skirts in pastel pink and gray hues, paired with ballerina flats and lace up pointe shoes. The diplay was embellished with roses and ribbons, declaring a very feminine turn in fashion.

To complete the ballerina look, the mannequins were were wearing legwear, of course! Stockingirl capri and ankle length leggings, microfiber tights, and leg warmers covered the legs to finish off the soft and flirty ensembles. Get the legwear look here!

Cover up your legs for Fall!

I was happy to see a minimal amount of bare legs on the runway for Fall 07. Nearly every designer styled their dresses and skirts (a huge trend for fall!) with black tights, of various thicknesses and textures. Wool opaque tights seemed to be biggest trend, followed by basic opaque and sheer black tights, and wool tights in ribbed textures. New York Magazine did a good sum up of Fall's trends, where you will see nearly every model with black legs!

Aside from the continuing black leg trend, I did see some new and interesting legwear styles.

Metallics are big for Fall, embraced by such designers as Marc Jacobs, Luca Luca, Vera Wang, and Oscar De La Renta. Three As Four and Cynthia Rowley enhanced their metallic ensembles with glittery shiny legs:

Carolina Herrera dazzled up her legwear with some large gem patterns. I absolutley love them, but could I actually pull off wearing them? Not so sure. If the pattern were toned down with some smaller jewels, that would be really cute. I may have to get out my glue gun...

Diesel's looks for Fall were styled with nude and black pantyhose with back seams, and over the knee socks, very sexy and sleek!

Leggings are Still in Fashion for Spring

What is new in legwear styles for Spring? Taking a look at the Spring 07 Runway shows, it is clear that leggings are still a trend and will continue to be fashionable. And really, what's not to love about leggings and footless tights? They're cute, comfortable, and with so many variations available, you can always find a pair to compliment your skirts and dresses.

Sheer Leggings are one trend I noticed that I think is new and interesting. Colored sheer leggings add a subtle hue to your legs, and look very cute with heels and flats. Sheer Colored Leggings were featured in the Baby Phat and Jean Paul Gaultier fashion shows:

Anna Sui used an interesting new concept, cut up solid and fishnet leggings. While I personally think the leggings are a little too gothic for my taste on their own, I loved her collection and think they complimented her intricate black, white, and red collection of embellished pieces very well. If you do decide you want to take your scissors to your fishnets, try these! These Lace Leggings also have a similar look.

Aside from these new concepts in leggings, solid colored leggings are still fashionable and chic, fashioned in the Michael Kors, Marni, and Sabyasachi runway shows:
