Stocking Stuffed: I am not an accessories girl. GASP! I’m sure this mere declaration is sending shivers down your spine. Afterall, statement jewelry is current and on-trend. But with the new year, I’ve come to the conclusion that my style doesn’t have to follow the pack. It changes with my experiences, not with the passing of the seasons. So NYR #2 is to stay true to my fashion instincts. And they say, “You love legwear. Buy some. Now.”
These are great chevron print tights. I like them paired with this gingham coat even though the ad is straight out of the 90’s. Can’t you see them adding some edge to an otherwise drab outfit? I can. Available at luxelegwear.com.
As a classically trained dancer, I think that legwarmers should stay in the studio. Just kidding. Only an unimaginative pomp would spout such nonsense. If you can pull off a cool look, knock yourself out. But I draw the line at pointe shoes, especially if you are a stickly thin lady trying to take a stab at my precious Degas. Available at asos.com.
Spanx is great. I hope Santa dropped off a few to each and every thong flasher. Yep, still see them. Since I don’t participate in such shenanigans, I got some footless tights from the fat jolly man. I love them so much I wear them around the house because I don’t want to take them off. Pro: They look cool with shoes because they create a bandage look. Con: Sometimes they slip off your tootsies and then become just regular leggings. At least you can wear them both ways. Available at spanx.com.
At last, the creme de la creme of legwear, Wolford. I didn’t know what the big deal was until I got a pair. The fabric is luxe soft and feels good on the skin. I have the 50 denier in barolo (wine/burgundy) and am experimenting with new looks. It’s a challenge, but I like trying new things. Available at wolfordboutiquelondon.com.
