You all know by now how much I love dresses: a lot. And do you know how cold it is where I come from? Very.
Only one thing can resolve my sartorial weather conundrum: stockings. They are an integral part of my cold weather attire. Fall season officially starts the day I redo my stockings drawer.
In the 1920s, they called them “nylons”, and got popular because of Hollywood, and the hemline rising.Their popularity increased throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and then, a steady decline began, leveling off in 2006 with American sales less than half of what they had once been, mostly due to dress codes everywhere becoming a little more lax.

Today, they are back in the spotlight full force, partially because of Kate the Duchess of Cambridge, who is never ever seen without them : it’s palace protocol!
I think tights are more than a trend or an accessory, they are like a photoshop magic wand, giving the wearer instant flawless legs.
They can add a little oomph to your winter outfit, mine here give me starry legs, and there is a plethora of prints or colors, even studded ones.
I love tights so much, that I was mentioned in a NY times article which covered them as an essential style element : “Pantyhose, it’s back at work”.
Ladies, embrace the cold weather and Infashionate your legs with a fun pair of hosiery!
