US takes tights tips from Kate Middleton
The Duchess of Cambridge is contributing to a renaissance in sheer leg wear over in the US, it seems.

According to fashion writers across the pond, sheer hosiery is coming back into fashion thanks to it being spotted on glamorous European socialites like Kate Middleton and Carla Bruni.

Angela Hawkins, general manager of hosiery brands at HanesBrands, said she thinks the Duchess looks "polished and sophisticated" and this will have an impact on hosiery sales abroad.

"We frequently see trends emanating from Europe and this should be no different," she said.

"There has been a slow but steady increase in younger women wearing sheer hosiery, or as they say in the UK, sheer tights."

Speculation has been rife recently that Kate Middleton may already be expecting her first child, although the royal couple have not confirmed or denied this.
