Hosiery and tights always seem to be the last of my concerns when it comes to planning an outfit, and it’s a shame, because tights can literally transform an otherwise blasé outfit into something very eye-catching.
And it seems like this spring, legwear is bigger than ever! Wolford‘s new spring/summer 2010 collection is abundant with pattern, texture and colors on cue with the latest trends seen on the runway and on celebs.
Take for instance, the delicate Vichy sock, with a modern houndstooth print in delectable summer colors. Like UK celeb Alexa Chung (right), pair with a skirt and open-toe heels for a retro, feminine look.
Even controversial pop-artist Lady Gaga will be going ‘goo-goo’ over the intricate patterned Circles tights, while burlesque vixen Dita Von Teese will be swooning over the retro Hot Dots tights (top right), and the cheeky (literally), Indivual 12 Stay-Hip (top left).
Whether you want to turn heads in Wolford’s textured Dazzle tights )bottom left) or the twenties-inspired Fringe tights (bottom right), or stick with the tried, tested and true classics, there is something to appeal to even the most fickle shopper.
