Retro style seamed stockings, perfect for New Years evening.

We can't think of anything that's more fashionable with your spectacular holiday dress than seamed stockings, but of course we are very biased (and we would definitely recommend the sparkly silver Christian Louboutin shoes the model is wearing above, but that is a different post). We definitely don't believe in bare legs with your beautiful holiday outfit. You can find black seamed sheer stockings, seamed thigh highs, silver and gold seamed stockings, metallic seamed thigh highs, or simply shimmery thigh highs and sparkle pantyhose here. Fabulous European contrast lace top thigh highs can be found here.

Retro Style Sheer Stockings, vintage styles updated and recreated!

As of late I have been focusing on cold weather leg wear and our new hosiery creations. I love these dearly of course, but the original focus of our company was vintage stockings.

Quite some years ago I purchased droves of original ultra sheer stockings. They were packaged in graphically stunning three pair boxes with sweet pastel colored tissue that lovingly encased the stockings. Trust me, if you haven't seen vintage hosiery from the 1940's and 50's, they were amazing. The stocking were meticulous, perfectly sheer, delicate, stunning and the packaging fabulous. I personally owned thousands of unique boxes in my stocking library. I was quite the collector of vintage hosiery, bordering on obsessive some might say. I finally stopped buying copious amounts of vintage stockings when it became obvious that my collection was overtaking my former super tiny 300 square foot NYC apartment. I had acquired so many boxes of stockings that I was beginning to store them in the oven as a last resort. This was not only a significant fire hazard, but any type of cooking was pretty much out of the question as well.

About eleven years ago I went around the world with my collection of vintage treasures and created perfect European reproductions of certain styles that I thought truly deserved to be revived. All of the original US factories no longer exist or are willing to make these labor intensive styles. Every year I change the colors but the idea and the quality remains the same.

Now in fashion magazines around the world you see the results of our efforts. Vintage stockings are everywhere, but we are making them with the same authentic methods, no manufacturing corners cut, we were one of the first to start the trend.

Today we received a new color stocking from Europe that is an authentic vintage style RHT stockings (reinforced heels and toes) with a blue welt with a sheer nude leg. Click here for details. It is not seamed but we do have a seamed version. It is just as sheer having no Lycra, needs a garter belt, a perfect reproduction. We also received another shipment of our previously sold out yellow/grey RHT stocking version.

So take a look at some of the vintage stockings we have re-created from my personal collection. Click here to see the whole category of stockings.

If you see vintage style stockings you covet from the pictures, click on the images above to find them!

New Cotton Tights in Plum Purple

Just another color addition to our ultra soft brushed cotton sweater weight tights collection for fall. We just received plum purple in our Diana Cotton tights. It is a beautiful shade of purple, not too bright, and will look great with all of your fall outfits and keep you toasty warm too!
Click here for more info our Diana tights in this color. We also have them available in scarlet red, forest green, winter white, black, espresso brown and charcoal grey.

Thick cashmere touch cotton tights in new fashion colors

Okay, so I posted about our Diana cotton/bamboo tights yesterday. But, and this is very last minute, we had such a great response to this product, we decided to make bright colors for fall as well, they will be in stock next week, but you can order them now. We had originally photographed our cotton/bamboo tights in red, but decided to keep it conservative and basic for this fall and did not introduce the bright colors we originally photographed. Now, due to demand for bright colors, we are going all out and making the original colors.

These cotton tights appear to be a medium weight cashmere/wool blend on the legs, .....the reality is that they are an Italian brushed cotton and bamboo blend, completely opaque, semi-fuzzy (is that a term?), ultra soft, ridiculously beautiful quality. They are eco-friendly cotton tights and they will last a very long time as you would expect from such a product (as long as you take care of them, no dryer on high heat).

You probably have not tried cotton tights with bamboo, but you should.

Now available in our cotton tights in bright colors. Click here for cotton tights in bright colors such as scarlet red, royal blue, forest green, navy blue. Click here for the same luxurious cotton tights but in more basic colors, black, espresso brown, charcoal grey, winter white (off white).

Stay warm and fashionable this winter, new colors in our warm cotton tights

So being from the Northeast, staying warm is pretty important to us as we sometimes feel that summer lasts for about a week and a half. That is a slight weather exaggeration, but not so much!

If you haven't tried our Diana cotton tights, which are new this fall, you definitely should! Super warm, not overly thick, and unbelievable quality. But if that isn't enough, let your fashion sense guide you as we have brand new colors available, forest green, a really pretty darker green, winter white and navy blue. That is in addition to our basic colors of midnight black, charcoal grey and espresso brown. Diana cotton tights are a unique combination of cotton yarn, bamboo yarn (don't let that scare you, bamboo is the new fiber everyone is using in everything from luxury sheets to clothing because it is eco-friendly, and it dyes extremely well with beautiful intense color, and it is ultra soft) It truly feels like the softest cotton tights you have ever experienced. Ultra rich in color, toasty warm and they will last for many years with the proper care. Click here for cotton tights info.

Textured tights and thigh highs are all the rage on the runway

We love Rodarte heavily textured tights. But it's difficult to afford $800+ a pair for these beautiful patterned leg wear gems.

So here's what we decided to make this fall. Beautiful tights that will come pretty darn close to replicating the ultra expensive textured hosiery look you will see around town this fall. We knit most of what you see in the pictures above in Europe, the rest is made in the United States.

Let us know what you think! Your comments are appreciated as always.

Dotted Pantyhose, back in style, on the Runway for Fall 09

Glamour steps into spotlight for fall - Washington Times

Shared via AddThis

I remember wearing dotted pantyhose years ago. Wore them to work, out in the evening, loved them. I think I had about a dozen pairs in every color of the rainbow. Actually I remember a pair that was a watermelon-ish color....maybe that wasn't such a good idea fashion wise.....but I digress. We're thrilled they made a roaring return to the world of fashion. This is just further evidence that everything does come back in style. Dotted tights are on the fashion runways again, as seen on the fall 2009 Balenciaga runway show and in London Fashion Week. They were using ultra sheer black pantyhose with small swiss dots and it looked terrific! Also, the Washington Times and the London Times recently published articles about what's hot for fall fashions in legwear. Click on the informative link above to read about hosiery trends. Today we introduced our Clara Swiss dot tights, and they are available in lots of fun colors!

If you want a creative twist on sheer patterned tights, try our new Samantha dotted pantyhose. Click here for details.

Leggings aren't Dead. Marc Jacobs Spring 2010 Show is proof!

So all I've been reading about lately is Marc Jacobs wonderful runway show. I have to admit it was pretty amazing. I love that he is using sheer legwear creatively and especially in a Spring/Summer show where most designers don't traditionally use legwear. The New York Times slideshow sums it up perfectly. Click here to see what the hype is about. Sheer long leggings scrunched up are a great look for spring! Click here to see our sheer nylon leggings, as we have a similar designer hosiery look. We have beautiful ultra sheer colored leggings which can be scrunched at the bottom for a fabulous Spring fashion legwear statement.

Okay, so perhaps those of us that live in the Scandinavian-esque (this is definitely not a real word) climate of the North, thinking about January zero +/- degree weather are having a hard time envisioning Spring of next year might want to focus on the reality of our impending fashion choices. But we have options. Ankle length opaque leggings are still great for fall, and of course, opaque tights, whether it is our Vanessa cable knit wool tights, microfiber or organic bamboo cotton tights. We have a wonderful selection of fall and winter hosiery available now.

If you are looking for a sexier appearance, our beautiful new Felicia opaque thigh highs will perform the task with elegance. They will keep your legs warm in the winter, but will stay up on their own without a garter belt!

Wool Tights are back! New Thigh Highs and Tights at StockinGirl

Say yes to warm tights and no to freezing legs this winter! Finally our incredibly soft wool tights are in stock and available in new colors. Just in time because the cooler weather is arriving. We've been accepting lots of pre-orders for them but all colors have just arrived. Available in Black, Grey and Chocolate Brown as always, but now we have Navy Blue and Winter White wool tights for fall! Year after year these are constantly our bestselling fall and winter tights featured in dozens of fashion magazines over the years. You can see our press pages here, and there are lots of interesting suggestions for wearing legwear on this page as well. Classic, warm as a sweater, ultra soft and fashionable, you will have these wool tights for years as a cold weather fashion staple. Our wool tights can be machine washed, and they won't pill (don't put them in the dryer, please, just lay flat to dry). Try them as cable knit tights, plain knit without a texture or ribbed tights.

Also, we've added two new thigh highs to the StockinGirl hosiery collection. A plain but sexy opaque thigh high with a wide ribbon top, which means that they will be really comfortable, stay up well, and not have that unattractive "pillowing" effect that less well made thigh highs can have when the silicone is too tight on the top of your leg. They are made in Europe with beautiful rich matte opaque appearance. Click here to see our new opaque thigh highs. Click here to see our entire thigh high collection!

Now for a little vixen in your legwear, after all, we like to try new hosiery fashions right? Lauren, our new fishnet thigh highs have a much more creative twist to traditional fishnets. Also made in Europe, with a comfortable silicone top under a pretty satin ribbon to hold them up nice and tight without a garter belt (not that we have anything against garter belts). Take a look at our Lauren fishnet thigh highs by clicking here.

StockinGirl on the Runway in NYC Fashion Week Again!

What an exciting week for us at StockinGirl. Rihanna in Vogue wearing our stockings, and now it's Fashion Week in NYC! We are very excited to be involved with a few designer fashion shows this season (I think we've done at least one show in Fashion Week in NYC for at least six years), but it's typically a crazy time in the office, getting our factories to quickly custom dye tights, stockings, thigh highs, knee highs and fishnets to match the outfits, but it's all worth it, especially when we get to go and see the finished product and how terrific they look on the runway. On Saturday we are going to the United Bamboo show, and we are getting tickets to a couple of shows in the Bryant Park Tents to see our things as well. We will definitely post pictures when available. Also, we'll be sure to take plenty of pics of fashionistas with creatively worn legwear outside of the tents.

Also, a famous Paris burlesque review Gentry de Paris starring the incomparible Dita von Teese will be featuring our exquisite colored seamed stockings in their show! If you happen to be in Paris (lucky you), be sure to go, and let us know exactly how fabulous it is. We'lll be very jealous of you though.

Above is another picture from Vogue with Rihanna wearing our sheer stockings.
