Gossip Girl inspires legwear lovers
Young fashion-forward females are getting style inspiration from the legwear-loving stars of the hit TV show Gossip Girl, it has been claimed.

According to commentator Ruth La Ferla, the preppie, hosiery-heavy style seen in the show has prompted many teenagers to hit the shops in search of similar ensembles for their own wardrobes, so they can emulate actresses Blake Lively and Taylor Momsen's style.

Making her comments via online resource Snobby and Grouchy, the writer asserts that the colourful tights, ankle socks and knee-high hosiery seen in the show will all be back-to school staples for fashion-conscious females this September.

She quotes the show's costume designer Eric Daman as saying: "We tried to launch trends from the get-go."

He adds that school girls try to make their uniforms look "edgy" and funky tights and unusual socks or leggings is one way they can achieve this.

Meanwhile, online resource My Fashion Life asserts that it is not just females who are inspire by the legwear on Gossip Girl, noting that the knee-high argyle socks modelled by the male characters are a real style statement.
