The hosiery or tights or stockings or leggings (depending on which continent you’re from) is making a comeback in the fashion trends of Japan. Why? I don’t know know because I asked the same thing too. While I own a pair of black opaque stockings ( i do own a couple of others transparent ones – i like those), which i wear with my dress and mary janes, I cannot fathom wearing red and white striped stockings for example and risk looking like a character from the circus show. But, that’s just my taste in fashion, however, I am sure there are those who lurvee these stockings! :)
I admit, they are cute but they’re not very suitable for daily wear in my opinion. Argh…i’m partial in my comments because i don’t like most of them. Another thing i don’t like is leggings that are also toe-socks. OMG, i hate seeing toes wiggling in their individual toe snugs…it looks like an alien from outer space! Okay..Okay… let’s look at some of these hosieries, leggings, stockings, whatever –
Hmm…i actually like no.5………….
