Pippa Middleton Wearing Nude Tights in Paris

The day after the wedding, Pippa Middleton stepped out with a gray leather Modalu bag that sold out almost instantly. She's done wonders for High Street brands such as Zara.

Earlier this month, Jezebel pointed out that Pippa Middleton committed "the ultimate pantyhose sin" while Pippa Middleton was spotted wearing nude tights in Paris, "no less."

And somehow, the skin-toned hosiery trend is catching on! The Telegraph reports that sales of nude tights has "risen by up to 85 percent in the past year."

The shocking increase has been attributed to a hesitancy to jump from opaques in the winter months to bare legs in the spring, as nude stockings offer an in-between of sorts. A second, more health-conscious reason for the once-taboo (possibly still taboo) trend: "[It] may also be driven in part by fears over sun exposure. Malignant melanoma is Britain's second most common cancer in 15 to 34-year-olds." (R)
