One of the most luxurious accessories to invest in are all types of hosiery. The truth is, the everyday legging, jean and trouser look can get a bit stale despite its timeless chic appeal. But sometimes a girl wants to show a little leg without flaunting bare stems. Up until a couple of years ago I was not sure as to how exactly hosiery of any kind was worn properly. As amateur as that sounds and as into style as I am I just couldn’t figure out what pattern to pair with what dress, skirt or even short shorts – I felt completely hosiery helpless. While Wolford has forever been an iconic brand in the industry it wasn’t until I went to Petticoat Lane [on Greenwich Ave] for one of their Wolford trunk shows where the owners and the wolfer rep introduced me to the lavish world of hosiery and the endless potential. There were stockings of all shades, opaques and scheer that were dazzled with designs of everything from actual gemstones to lace, a simple yet subtly chic thick seam up the center back and so many more. Handing me a leather pleaded mini skirt and a pair of these stockings – I was encouraged to just give it a try in the dressing room, see how it felt. I felt like a new woman. Oozing mystery and femininity I was instantly transplanted into the body of a confident woman who embraced everything that made me exactly that: a woman. Typically shielding in pants and whatever would cover me up this first experience at Petticoat Lane sent me down my own path of embracing fashion in a tasteful way while educating myself on the do’s and don’ts. But these hosiery , leggings and even socks – all of which hold much more importance for different ensembles than one may ever imagine – come at a cost. Whether you are looking to restock your inventory or want to embrace a new look NOW is the time to go to Petticoat Lane for their annual hosiery, legging and sock sale at the store.
