Bring Back The Backseam!

Backseam pantyhose were the leg wear of choice in the 1940s and had a pretty good run in fashion, not falling out of style until the 1960s. Like most fashion trends, they've come back again, seeing a big resurgence just within the last year or two.

Although I had never given much thought to pantyhose or stockings before (outside of wearing them with costumes or under a fancy dress on a cold day), backseam hose have definitely made me take more interest. It’s such a simple yet powerfully sexy way to draw attention to your legs, don’t you think? Here are some of my favorite backseam designs for the spring.

There are the classics...

And these for when you need just a little pop of color.

And I just love the fun details each of these pairs have!
