fashion forward: winter '09

Last year, it was all about funky colored tights. I bet every girl could search her closet right now and come across at least one pair of turquoise or neon pink tights. Whether you paired them up with a black dress or something a little more daring, don't deny that you, too, followed the trend (it's ok- I think we all did...).

However, right now all of that is literally Schnee von gestern as the German likes to say. Fall/winter 2009 is about a little more skin - and with that I mean net tights, lace tights and half-transparent tights with prints on them. Designs this season are clearly a little more girly and less edgy, although that depends on what you choose for the rest of your outfit.

So far, Topshop seems to sport the best selection. Among my favourites are the all over heart tights and the regal net tights for a plain look. If you're not afraid to show some color, go for the vintage lace tights in dusty pink or the forest scribble net tights. With prices ranging from £8.00 - £12.00, you'll also have plenty of cash left to splurge in the shoe department ;)

Happy shopping!
