Hell no! I know that men hate them and they’re too easy to ever been considered “fashionable” by the industry’s elite (except for Vera Wang who wears them everyday!), but I just can’t live without them and according to recent news neither can you!
Hosiery-including leggings, has seen a rise in sales so far this year. U.S. sales of women’s hosiery rose 2.3% to reach $3.28 billion in the 12 months through September 30 compared with the same time period a year earlier, according to market-researcher NPD Group and the Hoisery Association. Sally Kay, chief executive of the trade group, cited the continuing popularity of opaque tights, which have been prevalent on high-end fashion runways, as a significant reason for the increase.
I think women are looking for easy accessories, like patterned tights and/or leggings that can revamp last year’s dress or “autumnize” a summer dress…and with a wallet-friendly price tag on most styles, this is the perfect way to do it!
