Patterned Stockings - 1984

Designers brought us all kinds of patterned hosiery on the runways for Fall 2009. From textured tights with ribbing and stripes to lace and fishnets to florals and polka dots, it seems solid color stockings and tights are outré this season. But my dears, once more, what's old is new again. May I present patterned hosiery from Fall 1984.

Bold lacy stockings by Le Bourget are set off by Yves St. Laurent bright pink satin shoes.

Norma Kamali offered black pantyhose patterned with silver teardrops. Worn with Charles Jourdan shoes.

Undulating stripes on sheer black pantyhose by Stilnovo for Flash Legs. Add extra flash with shoes in wine satin with feathers by Andrea Pfister.
