According to WWD: The legwear industry has a heartbeat again.
Given up for almost dead just a few seasons ago, when the trend was for women to go bare-legged even in the freezing cold, the industry is enjoying a major revival, thanks to the popularity of leggings and tights.
Only last week, Karl Lagerfeld's couture show for Chanel was dominated by black tights under colorful dresses. And further evidence of the renaissance came at the Sundance Film Festival in snowy Park City, Utah, where young actresses ditched the traditional uniform of jeans and Ugg boots in favor of tights, chic dresses and high heels.
Meanwhile, legwear enthusiasts are gaining steam.
