Here at Luxury-Legs we understand the importance of staying on trend. When fashion designers parade their newest designs up and down the catwalk, we’re watching closely to see what they have in store for hosiery and legwear each season. When the Spring/Summer 16 catwalk previews arrived, we knew that this season would be huge for bringing back classic bold styles of luxury legwear. Exciting, brave trends that have been reinvented for 2016 are ready and waiting for you to style with your on-trend outfits. We’ve put together a shortlist of our favourite SS16 hosiery trends to make it even easier for you to style yourself SS16.
Fishnets – The Big Style Catch
Luxury-Legs Pick: Wolford Valerie Stay-Ups
It’s official, fishnets are back in style. First popularised many years ago with their wide mesh patterns, the fishnet has now taken on a more sophisticated appeal with smaller, neater mesh patterns that offer a shimmering look to the legs of the wearer. No longer to be associated with bold party wear, the fishnet can now be worn for a number of occasions for an elegant and refined legwear look.
Stockings in Summer
Luxury-Legs Pick: La Perla Vintage Stockings
A timeless hosiery classic, the stocking is moving increasingly towards becoming a style staple for everyday use rather than a fashion item found in seductive collections. Stockings can provide a more comfortable and confidence building hosiery experience, so it’s no surprise to us that they’re coming back in style with natural colours perfect for wearing in the summer!
Pop Your Socks On
Luxury-Legs Pick: Falke Cotton Touch Non-Elasticated Ankle Socks
Once an item to be tucked safely away underneath your trousers and shoes, the sock has recently made its way to the front of our fashion wardrobes. Ankle and knee socks are now fashionable items that can be worn with skirts and dresses for a perfectly on trend SS16 look – pop your socks on and show that you have designer style from head to toe!
Sheer Fashion, Sheer Tights
Luxury-Legs Pick: Fogal Brilliance 20 Denier Tights
While sheer tights made a return in 2015, SS16 is where they’ll reach their peak as predicted by fashion experts. With new and improved variety of skin tones and versatility of style options such as open toe tights, sheer material hosiery will gain popularity with those looking for a smooth and flawless finish to their legs.
