Tights, Please!

Happy National Stockings Day! This day of awareness in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month is sponsored by the sophisticated hosiery company Charnos. Not only does the holiday celebrate the rich history of stockings, which were invented in 1589, but proceeds from the sale of Charnos stockings are donated to Breast Cancer Care, an organization that offers support and information to those battling breast cancer as well as their friends and families. If you've never tried tights before, now is the perfect time to buy your first pair! (If it goes poorly, write it off as a charitable donation.) Charnos offers an array of stockings based on the tights worn by some of history's most iconic stylesetters, including Jackie Kennedy, Katharine Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe.

I had no idea it was National Stocking Day! I love the middle and the grey cable-knit-inspired pair.

Very good initiative. Any gesture is good to raise awareness and help on an issue that affects all women.
