NEW YORK — Eager to entice consumers and avoid more troublesome runs at retail, legwear makers are stepping out this fall with a slew of new product innovations and marketing strategies.
Fall and winter are by far the biggest legwear seasons, accounting for about 70 percent of annual sales — estimated to be $3 billion last year — as people dress for cooler weather and break out their formal looks for holiday events.
