While many people may associate the warmer months with tanned bare legs, this summer is the season of the sock (and tights), asserts one style commentator.
Making her comments through online resource Fashion Today, Lisa Irizarry notes that legwear
, from ankle socks
, to knee-high stockings
, is the fashion must over the coming months.
Citing lace-trimmed socks
and brightly-coloured tights
or leggings with a metallic sheen as hot trends, Ms Irizarry states that the wealth of legwear
options available mean style-savvy females "dare not go bare".
Meanwhile, fashion-forward ladies may have noted that a new hosiery
trend has hit catwalks in recent weeks, with designers including Anna Sui, Paul Smith and Maurizio Pecoraro sending their models down the runway wearing tights
which matched their ensembles perfectly.
Black Voices reports that while Pecoraro embraced monochrome and matched the shade of his models' tights
to their dresses, Sui and Smith created customised patterned tights
in the same designs as their clothes to create a "pure", long and lean look.
