Summer is almost over... sadly... until very recently it was pretty cold and rainy in the Northeast where we reside so we don't feel like we had quite enough summer fun. On the bright side of the impending chillier weather we can start scheming about fun fashion statements for fall (and keeping our legs warm too!). At StockinGirl, we are bringing back our famous classic thick wool tights, cable knit tights and ribbed tights for the fifth year. Our wool tights are our most popular fall and winter item and have developed quite a following. You may have seen them displayed in a local boutique in your area. Ultra soft and luxurious, they are super warm and incredibly high quality (machine washing isn't a problem as long as you don't put them in the dryer). With the proper care they will look new year after year. New to StockinGirl in our wool tights this fall are navy blue and winter white. Danielle wool tights are plain knit with no texture, and are also available as cable knit tights and ribbed tights.
If you want lighter but still luxurious feeling opaque tights, we are excited about our new cotton/bamboo fiber tights. Bamboo fiber is eco-friendly while offering no compromise on texture or appearance. Our bamboo tights are wonderfully soft with a feel and look similar to a light cashmere fiber. They are currently available in black and heathered grey. In the fall we are adding vibrant scarlet red, royal blue and forest green to our color palette. Click here to read more about them.
Also, we've noticed that thigh highs are big again. We've seen images in Blackbook recently with pretty fabulous Prada-esque cotton over the knee socks. On trend, we have a crochet version of this style, made in Italy exclusively for us, which can be worn as over the knee socks (they have a knit top to hold them up), or pulled up as thigh highs. Our Violette thigh highs even look great layered over tights.
