Ready or not, August is creeping quickly upon us, which means two things: firstly, you’re either dreading going back to school (me) or rejoicing at the thought of it (parents); and, secondly, (this I am actually excited for), August marks the month of fall fashion forecasts.
September issues of magazines the size of medical encyclopedias will deem what fashion trends you should fall for this autumn. Having seen some of the recent fashion shows, designers seem to share some common threads — luxe shearlings, camel coats, and maxi skirts appeared on catwalks from Alexander Wang, Stella McCartney, Michael Kors and Acne, to name a few.
As for accessories this autumn, much of the focus is on legs. From thigh-highs to legwarmers, ankle socks and patterned hosiery, Wolford’s latest fall/winter 2010-2011 legwear collection will adorn your gams in enviable styles.
Taking style cues from the runway, the Wolford legwear collection features Leo leopard printed tights (a huge trend this upcoming season); jewel tones like the Quaint in sheer and opaque styles; and art deco-esque geometric legwear such as Aston and Fence, worthy of being paired with the 1950s full-skirt trend.
Luckily for you legwear aficionados, there are a multitude of ways to wear them this fall. Pair ankle socks with open-toed platform sandals and bare legs, let thick knee-high socks peek out from under tall boots (but don’t cover your knees!) and pair woolly socks over tights for a cozy layered effect.
Wolford’s fall offerings are currently available on its UK online shop, wolfordshop.co.uk. Below are some images from the collection that are sure to give your limbs a lift!
