Hosiery manufacturers have come up with some wild creations for fall — but they aren’t pulling anyone’s leg. Fresh designs with eye-popping prints or tweaked-out openwork suggest the looks that are already staples of downtown Manhattan, where they seem to have serious staying power.

Chain Reaction

Patterned hosiery in luxe textures easily kicks up the style quotient on the season’s most casual looks. And the tights are making an impact all over. Here, Custo Barcelona’s nylon and silk velvet chain version with Diesel’s sweater and shirt and shorts from DKNY Jeans. Scarf from Converse by John Varvatos; Cesare Paciotti shoes.
