Candy Shoppe - A season filled with delicious sugary pastels reminds us of all that is fun and sweet. Hosiery for Spring/Summer 2013 will follow fashion’s romantic fling with sweet pastels and delicate, powdery hues—blush pink, baby blue, mint green, jonquil yellow and cloudy beige—for a soft and dreamy look. The candied palette will satisfy any sweet tooth.
English Tea Party - Spring/Summer 2013 will be filled with pretty dresses in soft pastel colors. Hosiery in delicate flowers, pin dots, bows and lace translate the vintage 50’s look seen in ready-to-wear—it is a Sofia Loren 50’s flashback. There is nothing that exudes femininity more this season than a beautiful pair of pin dot sheers in a perfect shade of nude, or a delicate bow in a mesh background; statement legwear that will take your breath away.
In The Buff - Cosmetic companies have been obsessed with finding the ‘perfect match’ for skin tones. This season, nude hosiery becomes the focus, as the right color of nude provides a flawless finish for your legs, the perfect skin tone, and the perfect finish. Ultra sheers will continue to be an important part of the legwear category as brands expand their skin tones, but gloss will be the focus. Illuminate your legs this season as gloss sheers allow the light to naturally reflect on your legs, giving you that flawless finish. Blame it on the Kate Middleton effect.
Into Africa - This season’s hottest trend is for all things ‘tribal’. Hosiery in exotic animal prints and rich tribal-inspired patterns in earth tones is the perfect match for this season’s cutting edge silhouettes, print dresses and super-luxe materials. The key message for hosiery is ‘ be as bold or as understated as you wish’. Embrace a sense of sun-drenched adventure, which brings with it exotic tones, playful prints and the most beautiful feminine touches.
