With the crisis affecting our budget and literally our wardrobe collection, we can still make a statement showing our sexy legs. We can tighten our belts on something but still look fashionable.
Women are now getting creative in completing their wardrobe in the most economical fashion. This may be the reason why winter stockings have enjoyed an increase in sales of about 65 to 70% last year especially the collections of kaleidoscope colours and kooky-print tights. Economists have labelled this stockings craze as the “Lipstick Index” to measure consumer behaviour in times of financial crisis. This came about as lipstick purchases also increased during economic hardships as more women tend to buy lipstick instead of new clothes.
Hosiery is becoming the latest craze bringing about fashionable legwear in response to the mini-skirt trend. Obviously, one or more mini-skirts will be a wise investment for your wardrobe then you can buy those stockings when budget is tight.

Coloured opaque and patterned tights have shown a dramatic rise in sales by 70 percent. Smart women are able to creatively practice flexibility in their wardrobes with just an investment of $15 and $30.
