Great shoes need great legwear



 
Net stay-ups - WOLFORD
Necklace - THE STING LONDON


Great shoes need great legwear... Do you remember this style mantra of mine? It's quite weird to talk about legwear in summer, but last Thursday night it was chilling in Milan... A perfect excuse to follow this precept and wear my loubies with one of my favorite tights...that were left in one closet of mine for a long time… what do you think? in my opinion good tights always add a sexy and "habillé" accent to any outfit. I tried many brands, but my preferred ones remain Wolford and La Perla which have a sensual and sophisticated style. As a note, Wolford quality and fit is on average better than La Perla, whose more basic styles sometimes are not so good (i.e. the elastic band of some of their stay-ups is too tight, making them very uncomfortable and your thighs look like some unflattering muffin-tops).

Uno dei miei mantra di stile e' delle belle scarpe vanno sempre abbinate adelle belle calze.... E' un po' strano parlare di calze in estate, ma giovedì scorso a Milano la temperatura si è abbassata bruscamente, così per uscire ho messo un paio delle mie calze preferite, a rete, che avevo abbandonato in un cassetto... non male secondo me... delle belle calze aggiungono sempre un tocco sexy ed "habille' a qualsiasi outfit , rinnovandolo. Ne ho provate molte, ma le mie marche di calze preferite rimangono Wolford e La Perla, che hanno sempre uno stile sexy e ricercato. WOLFORD ha una qualità mediamente superiore, almeno secondo la mia esperienza, mi è capitato che alcuni modelli meno costosi di La Perla non avessero una qualità eccezionale (ad esempio la banda dell'autoreggente troppo stretta rispetto alla taglia e quindi molto scomoda, oltre a far assomigliare le cosce a delle ben poco estetiche salsicce…).

  2. True! I have loved and worn fishnet tights over the last 20 years! It's always trendy in France.

  3. Anch'io adoro le calze Wolford e sono d'accordo sul fatto che siano di ottima qualità!

  4. You are so right about choosing the correct legwear for your shoes. I would just like to add one more suggestion - SummerSox (washable/reusable, flat, no-show socks that stick to the insoles of your pumps). You can wear them with or without stockings and they help keep you from slipping on the leather insoles... Very stylish and comfy, plus they protect the insoles on your expensive shoes: www.summersox.com
