This season, almost anything goes when it comes to legwear. From sheer to opaque styles, bold graphics, embellishments and cuts, we’re breaking down the top 10 legwear trends for fall 2010:

PANELED LEGGINGS:

Sass & Bide

If the bullet panels in the pair above are too extreme for you, opt for a pair of leggings with contrasting materials to achieve this edgy look, such as leather and denim.

ARTWORK ON TIGHTS:

American Apparel

These watercolor tights by American Apparel are a perfect example of how to rock artwork on your legs. Many styles out now play tricks on your eyes since they’re nude with color blocking or prints.

SHREDDED LEGWEAR:

Dakota Fanning

It looks like Dakota Fanning may have slashed up her tights herself, but you can also go out and purchase pairs that are already shredded up for you. Show some skin through these peek-a-boo styles, or layer them with bold colored tights underneath for a striking effect.

JEGGINGS:

Honey Bun

Although jeggings have been hot for some time, they’ve been taken to new levels—now, they’re practically jeans you can pull on. The look of denim, but all the comfort of leggings.

ALL WHITE TIGHTS:

L.A.M.B.

Sheer and opaque white tights were on fire throughout countless runways. Go for a hard look, like the L.A.M.B. model does above, or an airy, winter princess style by wearing them with light colors.

KNEE HIGH SOCKS:

Antonio Marras

Knee highs were all the rage over runways this season, from knitted to sexy sheer styles. A hot look in this category is going footless and slightly baggy, like the pair above.

BOLD COLORED OPAQUE TIGHTS:

Zac Posen

Go for unexpected shades in opaque tights this season, such as pastels and punchy colors like the pair above by Zac Posen.

SOCKS OVER PANTS:

Thakoon

You read it right—pull those socks over your leggings, skinny jeans or harem pants. Opt for a subtle look, like the charcoal pair above, or get bold with prints.

OVER-THE-SHOE SOCKS:

Alexander Wang

Over-the-shoe knee highs and leggings are an “it” look for fall 2010. Dancer inspired, you can now get away with wearing those not-so-hot comfy heels without anyone noticing!

FURRY LEGWARMERS:

Jessica Alba for GenLux Magazine

Whether real or faux, furry leg warmers are a sweet trend this season. Rock them over a pair of ankle boots or pumps with a dress, skirt, shorts—with or without tights/leggings.
