Designers at London Fashion Week have called on specialist hosiery website to cover the long legs of the models on their catwalks. The site certainly has the multitude of styles, shapes and colours to compliment any outfit.  Apparently the stylists have called for lots of lace, backseams and fish nets, as well as matte black and coloured opaques, sparkly tights, ankle & knee high socks and soft woollen tights.

In the past few days we’ve seen Vivien Westwood’s show featuring matte opaques in bright oranges, yellows and reds, alongside knee high woollen socks in cerise pinks. Top Shop Unique’s quirky show had girls strutting up and down in soft, woolly cable numbers for autumn 2010 (remember Alexa Chung in her grey marl tights at Chanel earlier in the year?) So if you want to be ahead of the game right now check out’s soft, ribbed wool tights with merino and cashmere – yes woolly tights have come along way, since those school uniform days!!  Shows by Henry Holland and Clements Ribeiro have gone for lighter, patterned, trasparent styles in blacks, greys and pastel shades.  If this is more your style take a look at Transparenze range which will take you, right on trend, into spring.

Finally, if you’d like the toned stomach, flat bottom and pulled in waistline of a model(well almost) without spending anytime dieting or pounding the treadmills you need to invest in spanx. These are the wonder invention of Sarah Blakely –  bodyshaping hosiery, which will banish VPL and give you a gorgeously toned, smooth and streamlined look. Sarah originally desgined footless, control hosiery to wear with light coloured trousers, now the range includes slips, pants, tights, body suits – in fact all the styles and colourtones that will give you the confidence to wear any outfit this coming spring and summer. Once you discover you will never go onto the highstreet to shop for hosiery again – they have everything your legs desire!
