NEW Foot Traffic LOOK BOOK

We have so much fun at FOOT TRAFFIC wearing our leggings, tights, and socks that we decided to create a LOOK BOOK featuring our favorite fashion ideas for fall and winter. We had two fun models help us put together some great looks. We love the combinations from playful to serious and hope that you will be inspired to come up with your own solutions.

FOR THE LOVE OF SNAKES…

…who thought up this latest trend!?!

I am petrified of snakes and the mere sight of one in a magazine or heaven forbid, real life, sends chills up and down my spine.  However, snakeskin–particularly python–is the latest animal kingdom pattern exciting the fashion industry this season and has slithered onto the pages of every fashion magazine and every product imaginable.

Snakeskin texture and colors certainly add dramatic interest ranging from playful to sophisticated.

Python Print and Snakeskin Fashion Trend

(Black python belt by Fashion Addict, Natural snake print handbag by Prada, Python black printer tights by Foot Traffic, Python print silk dress by Lanvin, Snakeskin bangle bracelets by UO, and Gray python vamp pumps by Christian Louboutin.)

They certainly make a “striking” fashion statement!

We have been selling snakeskin prints for years and yes, we jumped on the python design wagon this season and designed a new dramatic tight and footless tight that will crawl right up your legs.

Let us know what you think about the python fashion frenzy this season.

Has it slithered into your wardrobe this year? Will you be wearing our new python tights and footless tights?

What’s Under YOUR Wedding Dress?

Don’t let your legs be last

Paris Texture Tights

The perfect man….
The perfect dress…
The perfect flowers…
The perfect cake…
The perfect legwear…WHAT?!!

Yes, the perfect legwear!

Planning a wedding takes time, patience and remembering every detail. Finding “the one” dress is almost as important as finding
“the one” husband. The dress includes not only the beautiful dress and veil, but everything else “under the dress” such as the shoes, garter and undergarments, and stockings. The entire “package” is a personal expression of the bride’s personality so it’s an opportunity to be playful, fun and surprising.

I recently spoke with Michael Nolte, a well-known bridal consultant, motivational speaker, and designer with two bridal salons in Kansas City. Michael has been designing bridal gowns for over 25 years and has contracted to style over 1000 weddings since 1980. When I asked him what the ladies are wearing on their legs under their dress, he smiled and said that the current style is “au natural” with a simple garter. We are all familiar with the ceremony of the groom lifting the dress, exposing the leg and removing the garter. Brides are spending beaucoup bucks on their shoes so Michael thinks doing something special with legwear is a unique opportunity to add even more fun under the dress while showing some of the bride’s fun personality. There are so many beautiful and fun stockings, tights and thigh highs available.

Yes, beautiful legs are a natural solution but here are some fresh new options to make your wedding as unique as you are!

Functional, Fun Fingerless Gloves

Fingerless gloves are back. They were part of the fashion world in the 80’s made popular by such artists as Madonna. In 1984, at the first Music Video Awards, Madonna wore a white lace outfit with matching fingerless gloves. Other pop stars such as David Bowe and Cyndi Lauper set the trend.
Today, fingerless gloves are seen on the hands of contemporary artists such as Miley Cyrus, Katie Pery, Lady Gaga, Taylor Momsen, and Rihanna.

Our current text-savvy culture is embracing this practical glove accessory because they give you the freedom to text, work on the computer and drive without the bulk of regular gloves.

Fingerless gloves are not new.

The PERFECT Gift Certificate

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.

The PERFECT gift is one that you know the receiver will be able to use.

At Foot Traffic we offer a gift certificate that takes the worry out of gift giving because who doesn’t need legwear and socks?!?
