NEW YORK, Mar 9, 2011/ —Lately, patterned black lace hosiery is popping up everywhere – from the streets Los Angeles to the cobblestones of Paris – and is making a statement that’s right on trend.

Take a note from wife of the President of France, Carla Bruni Sarkozy, who wore a pair of patterned tights to a state dinner in Paris last week or from Katy Perry who chose to pair hers with a miniskirt and heels while running errands.

To get the look, try DKNY Modern Lace and DKNY Modern Floral tights, $18 available at Nordstrom.
