Get a leg up as you move fashion forward! The desire to adorn our feet with fabulous footwear design is a passion–true enough. But what happens when we want to cover our feet and wrap our legs in legwear luxury?

This season has brought out some of the most spectacular looks we’ve seen in years. Even though black leggings or tights are a staple in almost every wardrobe, our yearning for colors and patterns has lagged far behind. That is, until now. This fashion season, we shoe-vanistas have finally been met full fashion force by the creativity of hosiery and legwear manufacturers and designers.

The legwear landscape is becoming almost as bold as we shoe-obsessed consumers are. So whether you classify yourself as chic, classic, elegant, or hip, the legwear marketplace has something for everyone of us trendsetting divas.
