Leg It

I like a dash of sparkle in everyday look. Especially an area that is usually left plain. Wearing of tights has a history going back several centuries, when they were worn by men. Now worn by women to keep the legs and feet warm and hide physical imperfections or as formal wear. In the 1920s, as hemlines of dresses rose, women began to wear stockings to cover the exposed legs. Tights and stockings are associated with sex appeal, my guess is something to do with the silky nylon. Basically women make tights sexy....sorry guys.
