With the winter weather upon us, keeping warm while looking fashionable is a top priority. Find out what legwear trends will keep you looking runway ready and keep your legs nice and toasty.

Textured leggings

Leggings are a style staple for any fashionista when she wants to be comfortable while still looking chic. This winter, leggings with different textures are a must. Velvet leggings will keep you seriously warm and provide you with flawless style. These American Apparel velvet leggings (seen right) are warm enough to wear on an icy night on the town and keep you fashionable when worn with a sparkly top. If you're feeling like the life of the party, these sequin leggings from Express will add some sparkle to your personality and outfit.

Patterned tights

Add some flair to your tights with embellishments, patterns and different colors. Instead of wearing black plain tights with your LBD, wear a plum color. These side detail floral sheer tights from Urban Outfitters have subtle embellishment that adds playfulness to any outfit. Pair these Pretty Polly ribbon back seam tights from Nordstrom (seen right) with a holiday party dress for a festive look.

Knee socks

Think Clueless meets 2011. Before you say "As if!" to these '90s-labeled socks, think about how great and sexy they can look when paired correctly. American Apparel's super sheer over-the-knee socks in Virtual Pink (seen right) are unconventional without being too quirky. Pair with a black, glittery party dress for a Barbie-meets-Avril Lavigne chic look. If your style is more Jacqueline than Marilyn, these ribbed modal over-the-knee socks from American Apparel look extra sophisticated when worn with brown riding boots and a suede skirt.

Thigh highs

Though this look is very Taylor Momsen, it can still be worn in a tasteful way. These Betsey Johnson Pose in Rose net thigh highs tights are super sultry, and when worn with a girly, feminine dress, will balance out the sex appeal. If you want thigh highs with small detailing, then these Agent Provocateur Frill Top Hold Up thigh high tights (seen right) are perfect with just small embellishments of feminine lace at the top. Thigh highs hold a lot of sex appeal so pairing them with the right outfit is crucial, unless you want to look like a high class call girl.

Dress up your stems


If your winter climate is below the 0 Fahrenheit kind, then you may want to think twice before sporting a pair of sheer tights. Cableknit leggings, tights and socks are the type of legwear that can weather a blizzard -- well, a moderate one anyway. These cableknit leggings from Anthropologie (seen right) will keep you toasty, and when worn with an oversized tee, they'll give you a sexy-comfortable look.
