Embellishments allow for an updated look on simple shapes as hosiery and sweater knits both received crystals and sequins as an added feature on the F/W 09 runways. Ribbed knee-highs, opaque tights and sheer stockings were decorated with stones as well as satin ribbons, even making their way onto footwear. These dazzling details also appeared on sweater knit twin sets, intertwined on cobweb sweater dresses and trimmed cardigans. These small details and sparkling knits can be incorporated with existing basics like skirts and dresses to update any wardrobe.
