Weather change soars up demand for stockings

Jun '10
The recent weather change has forced the people of London to wear stockings and suspenders daily. The traditional hosiery that was well-liked in the fifties is now witnessing a three-fold sales growth in the London branches of a particular shop. Last month, sales of black suspender belts were almost 238 percent more than that in the month of April.

It is believed that, this increase in demand is partly because of celebrities such as Kylie, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, who are flaunting their stockings this summer, as they adopt the catwalk trend of wearing innerwear as outerwear. However, cooler option for tights is also being preferred widely in unpredictable weather.

Summer season in London starts with frequent spells of rains and sun in the same day, confusing women, about what to wear. In such conditions, stockings and suspenders, such as leggings, are the popularly chosen alternatives for tights as they protect legs in unexpectedly chilled weather and are also cooler than tights during hotter days. They are also considered to be comfortable form of garment for office-wear.
