Dutchess Kate Middleton, wife of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, has inspired another new fad outlined in the 'Royal Leg-acy' infographic: nude hosiery. Surprising, yet true, the emerging obsession has even been documented economically. The market for nude tights has reportedly increased for some brands a shocking 92% since the royal nuptials.

It's no secret that her wedding gown, designer duds, and overall stylishly chic appearance has been the inspiration for many a girl out there looking to find a prince of their own. However, the fact that she is influencing tight consumption is quite the feat. Since the Buckingham Palace has stipulated that sheer hosiery is a must to be within the British kingdom, this style was embraced by Kate both on and off the royal grounds.
