Stockings & Hoisery street shots from Paris, Milan, London & New York - trend one

Stockings and hoisery are becoming a popular essential not only in winter but through to spring & summer. Because there are sooo many trends i am going to start off with spring/summer ideas as i am living in Various trends and new ways of wearing hoisery are finding their way into the fashion indusrty and into mainstream fashion.  Here are some styles and ways of wearing stockings & hoisery that i find interesting and a little different to the way mainstream fashion is wearing their stockings, tights, hoisery & socks. 

I will be posting one trend a day for a few weeks.  Let me know if you have any ideas for a trend!

Panelling with solids & sheers:
Yesterday i posted up some images of some new stockings i bought at AA.  If you remember there was a pair which had contrasting sheer and solid white panels.  This trend is becoming increasingly popular after

Key elements of the trend:
Legwear in this trend usually features super-fine mesh or sheer panels/patches to create a modern look.
Sometimes the legwear is not always tight but is loose to create a worn and casual feel to the look 
The trend also sees the use of metallics and shiny satins to create a futuristic look.  This along with geometic shapes gives a sense of 60's moon race fever.
The use of extremely sheer panels in a very low-denier can be used to create faux lace effects.
