Many of us remember when it was important to select a color - nude, black, tan, or otherwise - to go with every outfit. Where did the world go wrong with the chance to cover up those lily whites? Or even add a little cover to blemished skin tones? Throughout the 1970s, even young girls wouldn't "leave home without them."
Thanks to a revamped effort by L'eggs, pantyhose are no longer something you pull on for a funeral and hope you won't find any runners. The plastic egg is long gone, but the brand is certainly back in a transforming push that may shock some and be wholly embraced by others. The Queen and Duchesses' tastes aside, bare may no longer be "there," while legs get a lift with skin-conforming nylons.
It will be interesting to follow this trend. Does it also mean a return to more "lady-like" attire as opposed to casual and sporty looks? As with many other sweeping changes (yes, the ones that come around and go around), will the push for pantyhose usher in a new era or will this "fad" be something we'll see fade then return a few decades from now?
