The leggings and hosiery fad doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. It is, however, getting a severe, modern makeover. Designers are paying extra attention to those beautiful stems, adorning them with jewels, lace, embroidery and exotic prints. In some cases models, walked down the runways without anything else on at all except for a fantastic pair of embellished hosiery. Perhaps these new beauties will replace the skinny pant? Well, only for those bold fashionistas who have nothing to hide.
