fancy legs

I saw this image of patterned stockings from Life magazine on Tumblr the other day, and I’ve had legwear envy ever since. I used to have a couple plaid pairs similar to 1895 in the late 1980s/early 1990s. They looked awesome with my combat boots! Right now, my patterned legwear runs to a couple pair of pointelle/crocheted tights (though I also own fishnets that I never wear). I’d love to have all of the pairs shown above, though. Do you wear patterned or printed legwear? Do you have a favorite brand for tights?

I did a little internet searching for patterned tights and turned up these nifty options.

Anna Sui flower crochet tights from Sock Dreams.

Look from London peacock feather tights, from ModCloth.
