I love all this legwear. I hope this tights and leggings thing never ends. Too many tights, not enough days to wear them!

pretty*pink*rat said...

Oh hooray!! Thank you! I am so excited for some goodies from ECBC!!

And these tights are everything from fabulous to freaky, have to agree with Fashion by He about being careful! I think I'll stick to basic colors this season!

Dream Sequins said...

I'm really happy that legwear is not going away... This is a trend I can live with. I hope to acquire some fancier tights and leggings for Fall! LOVED the Rad Hourani show. The leggings dripping with silver are just so dazzling in person. I was lucky enough to see them in the showroom and at the show. I nearly died of bliss.

Taylor Sterling said...

I am loving the L.A.M.B. tights! So lacey and pretty! great picks as always Carrie!

Erika said...

Congratulations pretty pink rat!

Aminaka Wilmont = love. Though I abslutely adore the neutral unobtrusive style of Dennis Basso, as well. So lovely. :)

I have my usual arsenal of black and solid opaque tights for the chilly season to come, but this post has made me want to include some fancy little prints mixed in as well!

Thank you for the lovely patterns!

Leggings are a great way to make any outfit stand out in a good way. While I love all the leggings featured here, I would say lace leggings are still my favorite~

I'm glad you like my blog's new look!

Ashley said...

I love patterned tights! You picked the best ones too! It'd be hard to choose just 1 pair from StockinGirl, but I think I'd have to go with the Gray Abstract tights - I just love the marbled print!

Leah said...

I love tights and leggings. I'm taking advantage of wearing them now that I'm on vacation. Back in the tropics, I would definitely be laughed at if I wear them.

Lily G. said...

Love the legwear. Very different. Love all the bright colors. :)

I love ripped stockings, they add that trashy yet fun look to it.

Allie said...

Though the rest of the collection was a little off, I loved the leg wear at Issey Miyake!

Vanessa said...

Ok. Not everyone can wear these leggings without something covering the bottom. These will look great if worn tastefully.

Christen said...

I am so excited by legwear this season (and next)! I really would love a pair of sequined and/or embroidered tights...

April and Ashley said...

I'm a huge fan of over the knee socks! I'm still not too sure about the legging trend. I think they would have to be really special for me to try them out.
Thanks for the lovely giveaway!

clarewbrown said...

Oh how I love patterned tights! The tattered leggings are a little too rugged for my taste, but other girls pull them off beautifully! Like any other item of clothing, you have to self aware :)

Sher said...

Dear CC,

What a great post! I have the utmost love for leggings and stockings though the weather in my country rarely permits it! I'm now looking for tights with little hearts on it:)

xx,
Sher

Michael St. James said...

I love the fact that the Marchesa tights look like tatoos!

Keith said...

These are amazing. I love leggings. It's great to see these. Hope your week started off well. Cheers!

Quixsa said...

Great timing! I've maybe worn stockings/leggings twice before as an adult but earlier this week I rediscovered what a wonderful fashion statement they are! :0)Thanks for paying attention to leggings-they deserve it!

Treacle said...

A stockings post? You make me so happy! :-)

The black mesh tights with the circular cutouts on the back of the leg are really interesting. I also like the ankle socks with the cutouts over the calves.

Hmmm...I see a pattern here.

Averill said...

Not sure some of these patterns would work on anyone who doesn't have model-thin legs, but I do love bright solid hues for fall (and into spring). In fact, just picked up a pair of violet hose and I love them with black.

Valeriesoh said...

love those leggings! most of them.

I love how your post are so detailed!!

Couture Cookie said...

CMA said...

congrats to the ecbc winner!!

love stockin girl!! i went and took a look around, and let me say that i would be totally honored to win such a prize. each piece on the site is absolutely gorgeous, detailed, flawless. i see tights as always being an easy throw-on addition to any outfit and now that the weather is getting colder, i throw them on everyday. every pattern and color is a new surprise each day, fun to put on with something unexpected and create something new as my own formation of daily personal art. i'd love to win, good luck to all the entries!
