Catwalk Hosiery Trends for FW2016/2017

If you have been following the recent Fall/Winter 2016-2017 fashion week season, you may have noticed the abundance of hosiery on catwalks. While the majority of designers went with the classic black fishnets (and sometimes even in other colors), we saw lots of patterned tights and ankle socks.

Prada presented the collection with thick, knit tights with diamond patterns that paired perfectly with warm jackets and coats.

Fishnets, fishnets and more fishnets! These are just a few out of many designers who presented fishnets on their catwalks. Take a note, fashionistas, fishnets are hot!

The shiny tights or sheer black pantyhose with a sophisticated sheen or tights with a sparkling pattern will definitely add that festive touch to a party or cocktail outfit. We especially enjoyed the glitzy, glamorous Roccobarocco collection.

And of course, the patterned tights aren’t going anywhere. We saw patterns ranging from florals to classic herringbone and polka dots.

And last, but not least – socks! And lots of them. We’ll never get tired of over-the-knee socks, but sheer ankle socks also have a place in our wardrobe. They are not only practical, but also can be fun when paired with cropped pants or jeans.

What’s your favorite trend of this season?

Stay foxy!

  1. Oh mostly hosiery with sparkle or shine but do like patterned hose to always looking for something I don’t have or get one’s that have worn out or damaged.
