Runway to WORKWAY fashions: legwear!

Hello Ladies,
Tuesday fashion tip today is a treat for your beautiful legs.

Socks, knee-highs, tights ... our legs are WORTH IT!

This fashion season can't be approached without legwear in mind. Some see it as the affordable accessory and others (me) as completing the outfit we are wearing as well as accessorizing it.

The trend is pretty broad and we can all find our perfect leg decor with certainty this season.

Mode Models and I did a quick Breakfast TV (on City TV Calgary) review of the legwear trends and here it is:

Back stage with the girls, all smiling and enjoying their tights and a few jokes!

Here we are on AIR with City TV's anchor Jill Belland and if you want to watch the video, just click the following link:

Which of the trend setters do you choose? Shall we try them all?

TREND 1. Sheers; pure sheer hose or the fun (80's are back) styles with pattern where the DOTs are leading, followed closely by stripes or abstract prints and even skulls or stars, just perfect fun.

TREND 2. Opaque tights come in all sorts of interesting styles: floral prints, ribbed texture, bright colours, great basic colours (grays, blacks, shitake), you be the judge of what works with your wardrobe!

TREND 3. Lace design is with mostly floral motifs.

TREND 4. Statement Tights bring us a lot of novelty tights and new ideas, like colour blocking (vertical striping) and layering of 2 tights together, this is where you can have fun and not be worried about wearing colour as this is not near your face and the focus on your legs is fun and playful at any age too! Not to mention the fact that if you have broad shoulders or bigger chest, it is great to balance it off with the strong focus on legs.

Last but not least, don't forget to wear socks with trousers or skirts and dresses, they are fabulous and will modernize your look instantly, check it for yourself.

Above all: Bottega Veneta

Till next time, ENJOY your legs and let others enjoy your style!


  1. Wow! They really get creative with color and design!

    I think the right legging can be the perfect accessory and many styles can be worn at any age. The cashmere blends are my favorite. So warm in the winter :)


  2. I must wear tights in the winter or I freeze! But these ones are amazing. I also love the knee sock scrunched down look but I'm afraid to wear that one..people will look at me like I've lost my mind!

  3. Beautiful leg wear. I love all of the patterns and colors.

    P.S. I'm having a Giveaway for a set of Nail Polishes, a Clutch, and Necklace/Earring Set.

  4. I will think of you from now on when I wear my ridiculously colourful tights, Zaneta! I loved your comment about Czech Santa Claus and the traffic lights: it was such a charming glimpse of a happy home. I hope your son will have the most wonderful Christmas, and that you will take much joy in his delight.

  5. You all look so cute! I love your tights, and of course, it doesn't hurt that you have great legs too!
