Sheer Tights Back In!

According to Who What Wear, sheer tights are back in! The girls were kind enough to highlight where the “it” hosiery looks have been seen and on who. Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, Karl Lagerfeld, and Derek Lam displayed these looks at their runway shows. They furthered the authenticity of this sheer trend by sharing who recently worn them (i.e. star backing). Kate Hudson wore gossamer gray tights to a Dolce & Gabbana party and Rihanna wore a sheer style last week at the Galliano show in Paris. That should sell you- right?

They say that Fogal is the best company to buy these delicacies from. They really like the Cordoba, Finesse, and Catwalk styles> But, keep in mind, these styles are very very pricey ($37-$71). The Cordoba has a skinny seam up the back (subtle and sexy) and are made from an ultra fine mesh that, in some small way, reminds us of ballet tights. The Finesse stockings have the right amount of sheerness, but are still strong and keep your legs firmly sheathed. They also like the Catwalk hosiery. Hosiery can be found at the Fogal boutiques (212.355.3254) and Shapings.

Our feeling is, unless the occasion is super special, these can be found elsewhere for much cheaper (like H&M). It is very frustrating to read that tights cost as much as $71 in this case and could potentially rip after one wear. Let's be realistic now!
