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!
