They’ve become so popular; designers like Donna Karan (DKNY) have designed special hosiery lines to create fun, sophisticated, and funky stockings.

Designed in an assortment of colors and materials, tights can be paired with skirts, dresses, or even shorts to convert sizzling summer wear into fly fall attire.
