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.



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.



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!

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?!?

Gift Certificate

We offer something for everyone on your gift list, from natural bamboo socks, to fashion hosiery and comfy legwarmers. We have hundreds of fun and fashion legwear items to choose from so you can be assured that the recipient will get exactly what they want.  It’s so easy.

How to buy and use a Foot Traffic’s Perfect Gift Certificate…



Holiday Legwear It’s that wonderful time of year when we have the opportunity to enjoy the company of friends, neighbors, and family.  Whether you are having people over or going out on the town, it is a time to get festive and expressive. With fashion options abounding, don’t forget your legs! From gloves to legwear, every item worn by a person adds to the overall appeal and personal expression.

Although pants and jeans have replaced skirts and dresses over the past years, we are seeing a return to the short skirt and black dresses,as a fun, flirty alternative, but worn with accessories and great legwear.  There are several ways to make a personal fashion statement at your holiday party.



When we think of lace we usually associate it with our most intimate apparel such as lingerie or nightwear. No longer do we hide this girly accent! Lace is now a delightful fashion focus that is fully exposed whether on a dress, scarf, skirt, or legwear.

Amazing Stripes!

Why are stripes so amazing?

Because they are so clean, simple, yet versatile.

They blend well with all textures and patterns and can be the focal point or an accent. Stripes are just cool. Whether in the home or on the runway, stripes are always is style.

OTK Striped SocksAlthough stripes have been a fashion staple forever, they look new when designed in fun colors and used in fun new ways.

At Foot Traffic, we love the fun new OTKs and knee highs for a fresh accent with short skirts and boots in hot fashion colors. Check out our fun striped toes socks and our great cotton tights.

We hope that you will add some stripes from FT to your wardrobe this season!

If you only do ONE thing this fall…

Animal print gone wild!

Animal print gone wild!

Get yourself some animal prints!

No matter where you look this season you will see the animal prints in all of the fashion magazines as well as in store windows. Although they have been around for years and we all think that eventually they will go out, they continue to come back every season, just in fun new ways.

The word on Merino wool…

Who wouldn’t love the new merino wool tights just introduced by Foot Traffic?!   When we felt the yarn and learned about the wonderful attributes of merino wool, we were sold and knew that you would be too.

No, our tights are not hot and they do not itch like other wools.

Merino wool rates near the top of the list of most cherished woolen fibers and is famous for being light in weight with astounding insulating properties, yet not hot.
