Its official ladies, the countdown to the special day has begun, with just over a week until all things romantic invade offices, restaurants & bars. The
day in question of course, is Valentine’s Day. Whether you choose to believe that a small cherub with a nifty bow & arrow kick started it or not, it’s still here and celebrated. And for us, it’s the perfect excuse to invest in some new hosiery…
There’s something for everyone, as you decide whether to go for super sweet…or sultry. As ever, we’re here to make your decision easier, so we’ve whittled down the best of both worlds for you. Enjoy!
Sultry – Conjuring up images of 40’s pin ups and Hollywood starlets, nothing says sultry quite like a pair of stockings. Perfect for adding that retro touch to any V-Day ensemble, these Oroblu Secret 15 Stockings should be on every cupid-themed shopping list. It seems that OK! Magazine agrees with us on this too, as they’ve added a silky nightdress to the gorgeous stockings, with stunning results!
Sweet – Now whilst the allure of stockings is immediately obvious, we understand that it might be a bit full on for that understated date to the cinema. This
doesn’t rule them out completely though, as stockings are adored by ladies all round for the comfort and freedom that they offer. Remaining hidden away under hemlines, there’s nothing like the sexy confidence that a pair of secret stockings can create. To keep your look playful, step into a pair of the Pamela Mann Jive Seamed Stockings. With a cute seam detail, opt for the Natural colour way to keep things subtle yet glam.
Sultry- If you’re after a compromise between sex appeal and the elements outside, we’ve found the answer in the Trasparenze Brazil Tights. Blue legs and non-stop shivering will never (thankfully) be en vogue, so pull on these 40 denier mock suspender tights to add an opulent, lacy touch to your outfit, whilst protecting your pins. We heart them!
Sweet – Cheeky by name and cheeky by nature, these Pretty Polly Cheeky Coloured Suspender & Knicker Tights are a must for any Valentine’s wardrobe. Butter wouldn’t melt as a colourful mock suspender design comes complete with bubblegum pink faux-knickers! Style with a flirty hemline to reveal the stripy tops and you’re guaranteed the leg limelight.
Sultry- French is certainly the language of love, so what could more fitting than these amorous Pamela Mann Je T’aime Back Seam Tights? Using the lingo, they spell out the word of the day, with a flattering seam detail to lengthen legs. We plan to team ours with that LBD and killer heels…
Sweet – This may be more to the taste of the cynics out there, as we’ve found a pattern that still screams charming, without a single love heart in sight. Featured in this week’s LOOK Magazine,it seems spotty tights are a happy medium, adding that something special to an outfit with their dainty dots. For all the polka dot princesses out there craving dotty tights, why not try the Pamela Mann Sheer Dots Tights, or for a bigger impact, the luxurious Bonny Dots Tights from Wolford?
So there you have it ladies, the choice is all yours. It only comes round once a year so make the most of it we say! Sultry or sweet – you decide…
