Sheer Tights

 It was sad to see sheer tights unraveling over the past decade on the fashion scene. Glamour girl’s essential accessory of the semi-transparent sheer hosiery has fallen out of favor over the fashion rage of the dense, high denier,opaque tights. You can look everywhere and find those exciting colored tights and leggings that are fun to wear with everything, especially your denium outfits, such as jeans! Just when you thought the last nail was in the sheer tight coffin, we are noticing our legs fragile friend, the sheer tights are offiically returning and with a vengenance!

The runways of Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Karl Lagerfeld, and Derek Lam were a study in gauzy gams, as designers sent out their models in see-though sheer tights stockings galore. We’ve also seen several celebrities embrace the translucent sheer tights trend; Kate Hudson wore gossamer gray tights to a Dolce & Gabbana party in December, Lily Allen went for a delicate sheer tight dark version a few weeks ago at the Luella F/W 08 show in London, and Rihanna sported a sheer tight style last week at the Galliano show in Paris.

Many companies make sheer tights, but the ones worth saving for are from Fogal. Of the scads of sheer tights styles available from the luxury hosiery maker, there are three we’re specifically fond of: Cordoba, Finesse, and Catwalk. The Cordoba style have a skinny seam up the back (subtle and sexy, our favorite) and are made from an ultra fine mesh that, in some small way, reminds us of ballet tights. The Finesse stockings are another excellent sheer tight choice. They have exactly the right amount of sheerness, but are still strong and keep your legs firmly sheathed. The Finesse also come in a tremendous array of colors including dove gray, indigo blue, grass green, hot pink, and a pretty prune shade. Fogal’s Catwalk hosiery are our final fantastic find. We’re aspiring collectors of the 10 denier sheer tights, particularly the seamed version!

    Yes, it HAS been sad to see the demise of sheer tights (pantyhose) in women’s wear. BUT, looking at the silver lining, at least maybe that will leave a golden opportunity for the rise of sheer legwear among men. How ironic it is that men’s pantyhose have been on the rise as the sales of women’s pantyhose continue to decline.

    PS, I would like to have authorization for the Fashion Pantyhose page please?
