Today is National Leg Wear Day and it made me wonder how many of you ladies out there take advantage of this soon to be forgotten fashion accessory? Which type do you like to wear? Are you the traditional type wearing only solid black, navy or nude? Or, are you more adventurous type wearing wild patterns, checks, prints and vibrant colors?
As a professional image consultant I've learned that leg wear can make or break an outfit. Also, it is imperative to wear them if the occasion calls for it. If you notice, more and more women are steering clear of wearing them. I still consult my clients and tell them the importance of wearing a pair, especially if it's for an important meeting or if you're say, speaking on stage.
When I teach my “What's My Style” fashion class, I help women and men learn what their fashion styles are – there are 7.

Fall has arrived and now's the time to take advantage of the season by adding some cool and fun leggings as well as tights, pantyhose and other fun legwear by incorporating them into your daily fashion routines.
Have you ever thought about wearing a pair of fishnets to the office? Some folks may think that's a little bit much, but, you most certainly can wear them as long as they're the right webbing. For instance, the larger the weave, the less “sexy” they look. I found several pair years ago that I love to wear to work, they're beige, white and purple. I've worn them to office meetings, network events and speaking engagements. They actually look fun, exciting and personable. Here are a couple you can try:
If you like more of the creative styles, you may like to add some of these fun and whimsical ones:
Not only do these tights make your legs look more fashionable, up-to-date and pulled together; you'll also be able to camouflage some of those not-so-lovely things that you may not like about them such as spider and varicose veins, scars or stretch marks AND the best part is that you may even be able to skip a couple of leg shavings (no one will know but you and possibly your significant other).
I remember when I had my ankle tendon repair surgery. It was back in 2004 and I had this terrible looking scar that ran from one end of my ankle to another (I fell in a sink hole outside my home in Brooklyn) and wearing tights and dark color pantyhose make me feel so much better about the appearance of my legs. It covered up the scar until it was lightened where I could go back to wearing au-naturel They were my saving grace. They not only kept the scar from being seen, it also kept me from constantly looking at it as a reminder of the fall.
If you've never been one to wear tights, you might want to begin slowly. I'd say introduce a pair that might have a tiny tight weave or small light pattern. Nothing too flashy or revealing. But, if you're looking to go from “drab and dreary to a vixen” then try on some thigh highs. Here are a couple of my favorites:
You can't help but immediately feel sexier once you slide on your first pair and, another bonus, your partner will be drooling all over you once they find out what you're wearing. If you want to push the envelope, add a garter belt to match.
Here are a couple of combination hosiery:
The last thing I want to share with you is that the legging or even Jeggings (jeans/legging combo) is one of the quickest ways to enhance your casual work pieces which you can add to your wardrobe that will not only flatter just about every leg length out there, but, they're quite easy to wear, comfortable as hell and you can wear them year-round. Some of my favorites are Lulumon just add your favorite pair of ballet flats wear a long tunic or man-tailored blouse, tie a sweater over your neck add a couple of necklaces, a chunky cuff bracelet, cool funky earrings and viola instant chic. You're on way to looking beautiful whether you're going to the office, Sunday brunch or shopping with your BFF's.
Well that's all for today lovelies. I hope you enjoyed this episode. If you did, please share the love and pass it on to someone you know who will also enjoy it.
