Whether you're trying to eek just a bit more wear out of those floaty floral frocks from summer/fall, step out in your peep-toes after the mercury’s started to seriously dip, or just wanna stay warm, few items up the sass factor of a frock or skirt like statement hosiery.
Exhibit A: A-list runways like Rodarte, Gucci, Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs & Chanel – all of which showed creative takes on statement legwear. And while we're more than fond of Falke & Fogal, not to mention wonky for Wolford…the prices? Eh, not so much.
Instead, check out Coccolare – Italian for “to pamper” – where you can snag (but not literally!) high-end hosiery (that doesn't snag) direct from boutique Italian manufacturers at seriously shocking prices.
$9 will net you some Rodarte-worthy knee-highs, while $10 = a pair of Marc Jacobs’esque ankle socks. And for slightly less than a $20 spot, you can step into crochet-knit pair of tights that look straight off the Gucci runway.
For tights, fishnets, opaque Chanel’ish tights, ribbed & patterned tights, thigh high stockings, pantyhose with or without patterns from brands like Trasparenze, Franco Bombana, SiSi, & Luisa Maria Lugli – look no further than the two hard-driving A-type fashionistas behind Coccolare Boutique.
