Whether you adore Liv from her time spent as a rebellious daughter aboard an oil rig during apocalyptic blockbuster Armageddon (pass the tissues please) or you know her best from her role as part-Elven Arwen from Lord of the Rings, there’s one thing that’s pretty clear cut. We have a crush on Liv’s legwear!
Showing us all how to work hosiery in the Big Apple, the raven haired beauty took to the streets of New York on her 36th birthday, teaming her floral romper with a pair of oh so chic black footless tights. Flaunting her never ending long legs, it seems that Liv has given us a serious case of hosiery envy back at MyTights HQ, leaving us searching for the perfect new addition for our wardrobes…
From plain to patterned, demure to daring, there’s bound to be a pair for every occasion. If like Liv you adore flirty hemlines but fancy a little more coverage during the day, footless tights are just the ticket. Offering the same lightweight feel and look as your opaque tights & sheers but with the versatility of no feet, footless tights are a hosiery drawer must have. What’s more, they go under just about everything and anything, transforming oversized jumpers and tees into acceptable dresses and even acting a secret layer underneath trousers when the chill sets in.
To get Liv’s exact look, treat your legs to the 3D Footless Tights from Pamela Mann. With just the right amount of opaque, the soft & stretchy fabric reveals just a sneak peek of leg below. Ideal for styling with rompers and playsuits a la Liv, the Pamela Mann footless tights add a little touch of demure to even the shortest of hemlines. For a dressed down day time style, take note from Liv and wear your footless tights with sweet ballet pumps and matching cardigan but when the sun goes down, experiment with sky high heels and an elegant cocktail dress.
For those with an adventurous streak, we’ve got just the footless tights for you. Packed full of safari chic and big cat charm, the Leopard Footless Tights from Pamela Mann work to inject a little fun into an otherwise understated outfit. With the lack of feet making sure that anything from peep toes to pumps is possible, these will keep your hosiery dreams alive for more than one season. To keep your look as far away from fancy dress as possible, avoid any other animal print, instead introducing a small heart or polka print for a nod to Burberry’s AW13 collection. C’est chic!
And of course, whilst some of you may stick religiously to your head to toe uniform of black, we understand that there are some rainbow worshipers out there who would adore a colour pop. Transforming dreams into a colourful reality, Italian brand Trasparenze have created the Dorella Footless Leggings. Available in more colours than there are days to wear them, the 70 denier footless leggings come in a range of fabulous shades, from the neon brights to jewelled tones. Even better, these are perfect for taller ladies (just like Liv!), as the stretchy fabric stretches up to 6’1”.
So with more than enough options to get your footless collection off the ground, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more fashion inspo from the lovely Liv!
