Sheer tights & hosiery S/S 08
Along with all the sheerness and transparency (even in pants) for the summer, we're getting a fresh new twist to the boring and cold opaque tights. Simple, easily torn apart and instantly sexy sheer tights. What do you think of this trend?

I love it. Seriously, I was only thinking about this all day. I've never worn them before, but I love, love the look.. and how sophisticated and much more chic it makes the wearer look than when that exact outfit is worn with bare (or bear? sp)-legs.

I think these look great with really short shorts or minis. You really got to work a minimalist and chic ensemble to not end up looking like a cheap hooker.

gah, you beat me to this, Kim! .
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..

I'm liking this trend. Very feminine, pretty, and wearable.

Really good point, I was going to say something similar. I adore the look but only with an otherwise minimal outfit or else it'll look so tacky.
