It’s all about socks! Knee highs, over the knees and sheer socks are being spotted all over the place. For a cosy finish to bare legs or to add a dynamic feel to high fashion looks – Socks are going to be huge this season.

Plaid and Tartan leapt off the runway with a show stopping array of patterns. This chequered and argyle decoration is a fashion favourite. Clashing patterns upon patterns is a big tend and is easiest to replicate with funky accessories.

 


 

Footless Tights Are Making a Comeback

We’re only a few days into this years A/W Fashion Week and we’ve seen lots of fabulous things from NYFW already. From abnormally large winter coats to metallic high gloss dresses. Although during Fashion Week we expect the unexpected, one thing we didn’t see coming was the rise of footless tights and leggings.

Earlier this week Kim Kardashian made headlines for wearing just sheer footless tights, a black leather bandeau and a suit jacket.

kim kardashian footless tights

Club Monaco did their first fall 2017 collection at NYFW presenting a ‘thoughtful reimagining of the classic fall wardrobe’. Pioneering a look that’s bold but sophisticated from flared trousers to smart jackets, but the secret ingredient to these outfits are the footless tights being worn underneath the dresses and flared midi skirts.

club monaco leggings

Its 2017 and who would’ve thought footless tights and leggings would become such a prominent piece in fashion. A new twist on a style that has been placed at the bottom of the hosiery draw!

Why not try the look for yourself? Be as bold as Kim K and bare it all for the world to see or be fashion forward and try them underneath skirts and dresses for a 80’s inspired wardrobe update.

The fashion brand is an iconic luxury label that is loved by celebrities from Kim Kardasian to Kate Middleton. Wolford started as a hosiery only brand, adored for its durable and comfortable legwear such as the ever-popular velvet de luxe tights. They later expanded to producing underwear and clothing. But how did this high end hosiery brand become the go to name for accessory staples pretty young things, social media starlets and reality tv royalty?!

The Wolford in pop culture frenzy began in the 90s with Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s love for the brands bodycon dresses. The idolised twins’ style was being replicated by fans who wanted to dress like their fashion icons, making the brand a recognised label to a whole new market of stylish young adults and teens. For Hollywood red carpets to British aristocracy – it was also reported at this time that Princess Diana would only wear hosiery from this high end Austrian brand.

The bodycon dresses have been described as comfortable and supportive with no need for a bra. This ultra luxury feel is a key reason for the overwhelming amount of attraction from celebrities. The fatal dress is favoured most of all by Kim Kardasian, who wore the dress throughout her whole pregnancy – recommending it to gal pal model and wife of John Legend, Chrissy Teigan, who also wore the dress during her pregnancy.

The Garter Come Back

Garter belts are having a moment! This vintage style is making a come back due to the unique style and sex appeal. Garter belts and stockings have become a secret love for people of all ages! They can be hidden under clothes to give the appearance of tights, which makes them ideal for any occasion or can make an amazing impact for a special occasion.

Suspender Belts can be a fantastic alternative to tights or hold ups, giving a smooth finish under clothes hiding a special secret for the wearer only or delivering a perfect intimate surprise.

Many woman who wear stockings and a suspender belt rather than tights choose this look because of the way it makes them feel. Lindy Gallagher recently told The Mail Online that wearing Stockings and a Suspender Belt under her everyday clothes makes her feel younger!

The 54 year old estate agent says that wearing stockings is empowering and rebellious, acting as an ‘anti-ageing weapon’. The feminine and sexy appearance is great for those who have a set uniform for work, it can make them feel pretty even in drab clothes.

Finding stockings is easy and there are many styles to choose however it is more difficult to choose a garter belt that will best suit you and your shape. There are a few things to consider before making a decision on your purchase.

DeepLaceSuspenderBelt-Plus Sized-GlamShot

The FIT

Firstly where will your belt sit? The waist is generally considered best for practicality and to hold everything in place.  Measure at the waist to avoid having to readjust it constantly and ensure that it sits comfortably. Some wearers (particularly for a bedroom look!) prefer a belt that sits on the hips – stretch styles are especially popular for this look as they hug the figure and don’t dig in.

The STRAPS

Most straps can be adjusted with sliders to make the distance between the top and the stocking far shorter – the shorter the distance between the stockings and the suspender belt itself the better the hold will be. Suspender belts generally have 4 or 6 straps but can have even more! Some wears have a preference to metal or plastic clips. Plastic clips tend to be cheaper and also are kinder to stockings, where as metals clips offer a more vintage, retro finish.

The STOCKINGS

There are a variety of choices to suit everyone’s needs. Vintage lovers are drawn to seamed stockings, these are a classic sexy look and come in a range of colours! There is also sheer, opaque, luxury or shiny stockings, which are ideal for everyday, match with a pencil skirt and blouse for a sophisticated look.

The RANGE

Miss Naughty have a sexy and comfortable lace or satin style that is the perfect for intimate occasions. These suspender belts have plastic clips and a hook and eye fastening at the back for a comfortable and easy wear. The Miss Naughty range is available in plus sizes up to XXXL.

Furthermore, the Silky Suspender Belt is discreet and affordable for all daywear. The Dreamgirl Suspender Belt has short straps for a strong hold, meaning that it can be worn for long periods of time without the need for readjusting. Including a bondage design, this belt is great for surprising that special someone!

Match your garter belt with the perfect stockings for you from the latest fashion styles to sheer, opaque or shiny stockings and seams. There are also luxury choices, fishnets, plain top and cheaper options, for those who would prefer to spend a little less.
