Between the go-go 1980s and Kate Middletons rise to fame as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, hosiery had what we might call a fallow period. The grunge 90s and spray-tanned, velour tracksuit-dominated 2000s did not feature much hosiery in fashion unless were talking about the ripped tights on Courtney Love.

Its like the world had forgotten about pantyhose! But little by little,as Kates secret was discoveredand as theblogsbegan taking notice, the fashion world started warming up to hosiery again.
