Leggings come in many forms -- pants, stockings, socks -- and can vary from plain cotton knit, cool prints, lacy designs or other configurations. They are comfortable and can be worn with shorts, skirts or, sometimes, by themselves.
Pictured here are red over-the-knee textured socks with a sheer herringbone design by Wolford, $6.99, and black knit stockings with diamond patterns, $14.99, both from United Apparel Liquidators (518 Chartres St., 301-4433; 2033 Hwy. 190 N, Covington, 985-871-0749).
Black-and-white horizontal striped leggings have an extra touch of style with three brass buttons at the ankle by Free People, $48, from Clo Cia (3000 Severn Ave., Suite 2, Metairie, 324-9450).
