NEW Solid Opaque Thigh High Colors for 2011!

Thigh Highs for FallAs we all know, Thigh Highs have been one of the greatest hosiery fashion trends in 2010. We have seen them on the runways of major fashion shows, on the streets of local communities, and in every fashion magazine. Based on the latest trend forecast, this fun fashion accessory will continue into 2011. Yeah!  The Solid Opaque Thigh Highs are so much fun because they work so well with knee high boots or layered with shorter boots like Uggs that seem to be getting us through yet another cold season.

Thigh Highs can be sexy, comfortable, warm, and fashionable at the same time.

LONG, LEAN, and LEGGY

Monochromatic DressingAs I pour through fashion magazines and watch all of the beautiful models on television, I longingly admire their tiny waists and long leggy looks. Although most of us don’t live on carrots and lettuce and aren’t six feet tall, there are some fashion tricks that the professionals use to achieve the long leggy look.
At Chico’s they call it “column” dressing. That is, dressing in monochromatic colors from head to toe.  You match your top to your pants or skirt and then match your tights to the rest of the outfit. It creates a continuous column of color, and interest is added through using different textures and great scarves and jewelry. And you don’t stop there.

SIZZLING RUNWAY STRIPES

Who watched the annual Victoria Secret catwalk show Tuesday night on CBS?

If you did not have a chance to watch this, check it out as it was incredibly creative and upbeat with one over-the-top outfit after another on models that are a far cry from the average female.  However, the show served its purpose of creating controversy around the topic of sex, lingerie, skinny models, and extreme designs that make you cringe, laugh, and wonder how they came up with those designs from the ridiculous to some that were actually quite stunning.  Of course, we at Foot Traffic were quite pleased to see some of the models strutting down the runway wearing one of our favorite type of  over-the-knee socks, the rainbow stripe. Stripes rule this season so check us out and see our collection of not only the OTK rainbow socks but also our thigh highs and tights.

By the way, we don’t carry the wings—just the awesome stripes!

How many times do you get a gift and even though you love the giver, the gift is just not right for you.  You then have to decide whether to return it or just keep it so as not to hurt the giver’s feelings, then never use it, wear it, eat it, or just regift it.
