    Yep, fishnet tights with trainers look great, I just love that look.

    Oh Gosh no. As a CD Girl I wear Sheer Tights every day now. You will find me in my open toe sandals or peep toe heels with a pedicure in my Wolford or Falke Sheer tights. The feel of sheer tights on waxed legs feel so great and look wonderful in autumn and spring. Tights are for me.
