Kate Middleton gave a much-needed jolt to the legwear industry, and now consumers are demanding even more fashion.
Whether it’s opaque tights in a kaleidoscope of fashion colors, earth tones, semisheer geometric patterns or textured laces, the $6.62 billion legwear and sock category continues to build momentum for fall 2014. Men’s wear and haberdashery prints such as houndstooth, stripes and tweed effects, as well as stretch faux leather looks, are projected to be strong influences. Sportswear-inspired leggings and styles that are sleek and embellished are also expected to be top ideas.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
