FUN.FASHION.FIT.

Right under our FOOT TRAFFIC logo are the words FUN. FASHION. FIT.

We take our tagline seriously and use these simple words to guide our product development process.

At Foot Traffic, we take FUN seriously.  We love legwear and have a lot of fun working with our designers to create fun legwear and socks so you can have fun too.  Our novelty socks and knee highs allow men and women to express their personal style with over 200 designs to choose from.

We take FASHION seriously too. We like to make sure that we have the most up to date legwear solutions at a great value so you can make a fashion statement just by changing your legwear, such as tights, footless tights, socks, OTK’s, and knee highs.  We attend fashion shows, devour fashion magazines, and listen to you so we can develop the latest colors and textures.

LOTS of activity at the WINN Show as well as ATS (Accessories the Show) and MAGIC! Buyers scurried from booth to booth as wholesalers and manufacturer reps showed off the latest and most exciting fashions and accessories for next fall, stirring up conversation and enthusiasm for their new lines. The layered silhouette still remains the dominant look with the opportunity of the retailer and customer to make it unique and personal with new colors, textures and accessories. (more…)

CONFIDENCE in COTTON

Foot Traffic Cotton Tights

It’s cold!  Winter is finally here and we start digging in our drawers to find our socks, leggings, tights, etc. to find something to keep our legs warm (without sacrificing our fashion sensibilities, of course!).  What a great time to talk about cotton tights and leggings. 

Why cotton?
Our cotton tights and leggings are made of 60 % combed cotton, the finest cotton available. They are like wearing your underwear all the way to your feet. You wore cotton as a baby and there’s a reason for that. It’s a naturally soft, durable fiber. That’s what makes our tights and leggings so darn soft and comfortable.

But wait… there’s more! Cotton is a fiber that blends beautifully with other fibers to ensure a great fit. So, using our very secret weaving technique (hint: high needle count and proprietary weaving process) we added nylon and spandex for maximum stretch and flexibility giving each pair the ability to retain its original shape after every wearing and every washing. AND, the crotch stays up. AND they don’t stretch out.  AND they don’t shrink!  That’s why they fit every time you put them on.

Our waistband is a 1” feathered underwear elastic waistband so it won’t roll over or down. Once they are on, no yanking or pulling up. That’s why you forget you have them on.

Our proprietary construction process eliminates the need for a seat panel. Instead we have a single, flat reinforced seam in the seat so no unsightly lines under your pants or skirts.  That’s why your butt looks so good!

Cotton is durable. Think about items like denim, diapers, sheets and shirts. They are made of cotton because the fiber is one of the most durable fibers available.  Our cotton tights don’t easily run and don’t wear out so plan on wearing them over and over.

That’s why we are confident that Foot Traffic cotton tights and leggings will be in your drawer next time you are digging for your favorite legwear!

We are so confident that you will love them, we are offering a guarantee with our SIGNATURE combed cotton tights and leggings as well as our PREMIUM combed cotton leggings. Click here  for the details!

 

Let us know what you think of our cottons!

How long have you been a “fashionista”?

I still don’t consider myself a fashionista of any kind honestly! I just wake up and get dressed in the morning, and somewhere along the way I decided to share that with the world! I haven’t always had the style I have now though. In high school I was really into Abercrombie, Hollister, etc. I definitely wore preppy styles, but I went to hardcore shows on the weekend and experimented with bright makeup. I kind of always made it my own. I guess I was doing something “right” as I was voted “Best Dressed” and “Most Likely to be Famous” my senior year thanks to my clashing style. Of course I came from a school of head to toe camo so take it for what you will! ;)

Where do you look for fashion trends?

I normally don’t care if something is trendy or not. Jeffrey Campbell Litas had their time in the spotlight for a while this past year and I have 4 pairs, but I’m going to continue to wear them no matter how many passive aggressive remarks get made on Twitter about how ugly they are! They’re loud and fun. That’s what I like!

What are your favorite sources of inspiration?

I love reading other life + style blogs. Nothing is as inspiring as seeing what other real girls wear. I don’t read Vogue, I don’t care who wears what on the red carpet, and you won’t ever find me watching Fashion Week.

What is your personal style?

Featured Blogger: Kaelah Bee in floral dress

I’m undeniably feminine in my endless supply of floral dresses and ruffled cardigans, but my hefty amount of tattoos and piercings (and bright red hair!) definitely add an edge to them. At least I think so! My style is such a mess sometimes. One day I’m all dolled up for a date, and the next I’m wearing clashing patterns and ripped tights. It’s a hodgepodge at best!

What is your favorite place to shop?

Thrift stores on the sale days! I have our thrift stores in Nashville mapped out for their sale days and I know exactly when to go. I can get a torn/stained dress for 50 cents and then just alter it at home to be as good as new! And it’ll be one of a kind so what’s better than that?!

Tell me about your favorite outfit.

It changes with the day honestly! Right now I’m really loving my hot dog dress and this fun colorful look for Autumn.

What is your favorite “go-to” legwear?Featured Blogger: Kaelah Bee in opaque tights

Opaque tights, without a doubt! I wear them year round. Even in the sweltering summer heat of Nashville. They’re great for these super short dresses they’re making these days!

What is the best way to update an outfit?

Add a different color pair of tights, a fresh cardigan, or even just a new funky pair of shoes!

What never goes out of style?

A classy cardigan!

What is the next trend we can expect this fall/winter?

Your guess is as good as mine! I can just tell you that I avoid all “knitwear” for the most part! I do not look good in sweater dresses, thus I avoid them like the plague! I pretty much don’t shop in retail stores between October and March. I don’t get along with winter wardrobes!

 

What are you looking forward to this Christmas?

This is the one time of the year when the whole family gets together at my Grandpa’s house. We enjoy being together. I also love the holiday food. I can’t cook worth a darn but I sure love to bake!

 

What do you wish for this Christmas?

Honestly, I would love to wake up to a white Christmas. It never happens here, but I really do dream of a white Christmas!

I’M DREAMING OF A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS…

Did you know that color is a great way to change your mood? Just as music creates an emotional response so does color. With the current, unsettled economic situation, we are all looking for a reason to be cheerful. No wonder major retailers this holiday season are featuring bright, bold colors, suggesting strength, confidence, and optimism.

Whether it’s bright dresses, colorful jeans, or accessories, you will see color everywhere this holiday and who isn’t more cheerful when wearing bright colors? Favorite holiday colors include red, turquoise, emerald green, sapphire blue, hot pink, and orange.

And, being the “bright spot” at a party doesn’t mean you have to look like a Christmas tree. With a few fun colorful accessories, you will brighten your mood and the mood of others around you. Of course, a simple way to add color is with a pair of colorful tights or leggings. Put on your LBD or black skirt, add tights, a matching scarf… and voila!

Other featured accessories include bright shoes, purses, scarves, hats, belts, etc.

This holiday season, it is time to step away from the television, put down your bank statements, and take time to enjoy the holidays…..

 

….AND MAY ALL YOUR CHRISTMAS TIGHTS BE BRIGHT!!!
