I love the fuschia-white ones!

I much prefer opaque tights as opposed to sheer hosiery.. however it does look very beautiful and feminine It's a lovely trend (did it even go away?).
But as mentioned before, I am a little scared of the cheap-hooker-feel that will arise in the near future..

I've been obsessed with sheer stockings for a few years now, especially paired with a pair of open stilettos with an ankle strap. There's something incredibly erotic about it, hosiery is like a forgotten art. It's more womanly whereas the opaque tights look was more girly in spirit.

And I love the grey to rust ombre version at Nina Ricci, they're kind of a compromise between the grown up femininity and playful naivete.

I've been collection pictures of this for several days.. it's definitely one of the strongest trends of the season, even Vogue UK devoted an ed to it..
.. I love the strange appeal of nude tights.. they look so decadent and sexy at the same time, I think. and are a lot less extravagant than the Prada-inspired wave of the last couple of years..

Ooh, I love those tights in all those colors I also adore those 2-tone Chanel tights too

Haha I love how when I stop wearing sheer it goes on the catwalk. I love opaque now.

I really want to try some of those dip dye tights. Anyone else experimented ?
