Suki Waterhouse Rocking Fishnets

Beautiful model Suki Waterhouse, in our opinion, single handedly put pastel tights back on the fashoinista radar! She has often been seen stepping out in pretty candy coloured hosiery and this week she shook things up a little and was snapped on the arm of gorgeous boyfriend, Bradley Cooper, rocking sultry fishnet tights.

Suki looked chic in a black lace dress, cream coat and black suede courts as she was escorted out of Bradley's broadway debut. The classic black fishnets lent a sophisticated edge to the beautiful models look.

Pastel Pink and Soft Grey Tights

Pastel pink is the must have hue this winter. Vogue fashion features director, Sarah Harris, advises "Pink makes the prettiest addition to winter wardrobes; partner it with soft grey and black for an instant burst of femininity,"

At her son's Christening recently, my lovely friend Nichola put a gorgeous spin on the trend, by teaming her pale pink ensemble with soft grey tights. The coloured tights complimented the nude pallet and brought the outfit together beautifully.

A street style snapper caught this shot of the stylish look at Milan Fashion Week. The fashionista teamed her grey tights and pencil skirt with an AW staple pink coat. Vogue also features a pink skirt and the colour opaques in their 'AW How To Wear' piece.

Shorts, dresses and knee high socks

With the weather so well, WARM for this time of the year, grab the opportunity to make an AW style statement, when you're out and about, before the necessary coats hide away your chic ensembles! Vogue have snapped these fashion savvy ladies for their street chic gallery this month...

boot socks

The knee socks and chunky ankle boots make their outfits so uniquely edgy, without the stylish touch, the outfits just wouldn't have the same uber cool impact!

To get the look, simply team ankle boots with knee high socks and either layer a simple t-shirt, shorts and gorgeously cosy long cardigan, or make the most of the warm weather and take your favourite white dress on a few more outings; the socks and boots combo will bring it bang up to date.

Levante Dorotea Cable Boot Socks have just arrived at Essex'ee Legs and would be the perfect choice for this look.  Keep lovely and warm this AW, and team these textured cable knee socks with your favorite pair of boots. Choose from charcoal grey or dark chocolate brown. Ultimate Italian merino wool socks plus cashmere, luxury boot socks that are so… soft :)

Opaques with Ankle Boots

As Autumn begins to colour the landscape and bring us cold crisp days, classic opaque tights and ankle boots have been the 'go to', for a bevy of beautiful celebs!

Across the pond, this month, Jessica Alba looked chic on a shopping trip, in New York, in a pretty navy shift and structured blazer. Adding some effortlessly stylish edge to her outfit, the star teamed the look with opaque tights, Doc Martin boots and a navy satchel.

Looking equally as gorgeous, Dakota Fanning was also spotted on a night out in the Big Apple rocking a similar smart-casual autumnal look. Giving us all a lesson in seasonal accessorising the actress paired together an on trend tartan scarf, opaque hosiery and ankle boots for her Manhattan drinks.

Here at Essex'ee Legs we have just expanded our own brand's luxury opaque tights collection. Ranging from 40 to 100 denier and with many of our styles available from a dress size 8 up to a size 32, the versatile look suits all shapes, and suits many styles and occasions. Our fuller figure black opaques have been best sellers this week! 

In the UK these lovely leggy ladies showed off their versions of the opaques and boots combo. Flying the flag for Britain, two days before The Referendum - to decide if Scotland should become independent from Great Britain, Abbey Clancy enjoyed a family day out in London wearing a patriotic union jack jumper, stylish opaques and ankle boots with a killer heel. Saturday's star, Rochelle Humes, also chose a heeled boot with opaque tights and a pretty print dress for a trip to a London Salon.

Ice Queen for AW14/15

Mui Mui SS14, Gucci AW14/15, Chanel AW14/15
Since the SS14 shows, the catwalk has been decorated with pretty pastel hues. Going into Autumn it's all about layering the pretty sorbet shades, which means we don't need to buy a whole new AW wardrobe! Hurrah! Just add a soft jumper, a candyfloss coloured coat or some pastel coloured tights to carry the trend on through the frosty months. This style is not disappearing anytime soon, it was still a prominent fixture for SS15 at London Fashion Week.

New and Slimproved Spanx

shaper shorts

Spanx are famous for perfection and they wondered if they could, possibly, improve their undergarments which have become the go-to for Gwyneth, an essential for the Kardashian clan, the must-have for Madonna, and the only thing that Oprah wears. Low and behold they have improved on perfection, with the new and slimproved Power Panties (below left) and the high waisted Spanx Higher Power Panties (right)...

spanx higher power

Create a smooth silhouette in Spanx Power Panties from top to bottom, and all around shaping achieving full coverage flattery. Spanx Higher Power tame your tummy, slim your torso, firm your rear, and give you sleek thighs, plus smoothing your back area. Sleek 3D cling-free yarns with 4 way stretch for comfort, that are thinner, meaning less bulk for the best results ever. The custom fit is so comfortable, you'll forget you have shaper shorts on!

Streamline your silhouette in comfort; perfect for wear under waist-cinching skirts and dresses. The cotton double gusset, in the Higher Power Panties, is a SPANX revelation, making trips to the powder room simple; as you don’t have to take your body suit off.  Say goodbye to panty lines. Band free leg means no bulges at thighs.

There is 3D knit spandex on every stitch of every row in the shaper shorts, giving exceptional elasticity, plus a smoother feel and look, resulting in additional compression that you won’t feel, but can see. So comfortable you can wear every day for a slim look and firm rear. The power panties slim your tummy with single layer tummy compression, through to double layer legs for smooth thighs. All round shaping for a flawless figure.

If you haven't already, make Spanx an absolute essential in your undies drawer, for a new  and slimproved you!!

Pull on Tan!

We are absolutely loving the warm summer, in London, but we are not enjoying the return of the dreaded fake tan! That's why we were so delighted that  the Jonathan Aston Pull on Tan Tight has arrived! The amazing cooling technology, in the design, means that we can boycott the streaky and patchy fake tanned legs! Instead, we have silky smooth, golden, sun-kissed pins in seconds :) The gorgeous skin colour pantyhose are toeless, so you can show off your pedicure in your favourite sandals too!

There's no need to worry about being too hot in the pull on tan tights as they are made from sideria yarns that have a cooling effect. The clever technology reacts to movement, so they cool your bronzed pins as you go about your day!

Choose from 2 gorgeous shades; Ibiza Tan, make you look like you've spent the last fortnight sunning yourself on a beach, or achieve a healthy sun-kissed glow with the High Street Honey shade. As well as a quick, stress free, even tan, these skin colour toeless tights also help hide any blemishes for a flawless look. All in all,  Essex'ee Leg's ladies think that the tights from Jonathan Aston London are their best beauty find this year, by far!!

Festival Fashion Part 3

Well, as mud free as possible was clearly, not going to happen at Glasto this weekend! But, as it always does, the show went on and what a show it was!

The rain didn't stop the crowd having a blast and looking as stylish as ever!

With the festival season just beginning, let's keep our fingers crossed for some better weather for Wireless this weekend!! After all, festival season would not be complete without at least some flower garlands and sunshine! Which brings us to our next festival outfit inspiration!

Cut off denim shorts, a rock tee or crop top, teamed with ankle boots and socks, is such an effortlessly cool look. Complete the look with a pretty flower garland and pastel socks to add a feminine edge.

Pastel socks have made plenty of appearances on the catwalk for SS14 and celebs and fashionistas have also been showing off the cute look.

Festival Fashion Part 2

With Glastonbury full to the brim with raucous revelry and anticipation, as we speak and with V Festival, LoveBox and Wireless Festival still to go, we continue on with our festival style inspiration. Following on from yesterday’s floral leggings and sneaker look, today we are loving over knee socks. Teamed with cute playsuits, tea dresses or short dungarees, the fashion socks look amazing with either wellies or ankle boots.

These Trasparenze Caballero Over Knee Socks fit the bill perfectly...

Festival Fashion Part 1

I adore the abandonment of all style rules when it comes to festivals, everyone embraces their free spirit and it results in some gorgeously unique looks. The Coachella festival in California passed in a haze of amazing music, balmy nights, hippy headdresses, bohemian style and celebrity selfies! Due to the sizzling Californian sun teeny shorts, bikini tops and ankle boots or sandals were a great wardrobe choice, but rain tends to be part and parcel at British festivals!

With Glastonbury kicking off this weekend we have picked our fave festival looks to inspire you! Always add some on trend socks or floral tights to your essentials list, that you can chop and change, to keep any mud to a minimum! Hosiery takes up such little space in your back pack (or suitcase if you're glamping!) and can add a quirky edge too! Fingers crossed light rain is only forecast on Saturday so this means more freedom for your festival wardrobes!

First up on our fave festival style list are floral leggings and sneakers!

On trend floral prints are everywhere this Summer but team your floral leggings with sneakers, to add a contrasting cool edge to your look. This outfit is also sooo comfy and laid back, perfectly in tune with the festival vibe.

Get the look with Pamela Mann Zesty Printed Footless Tights - bohemian style bold floral printed footless tights

flower footless tights
Bring out your wild side with perfect, festival fashion,  flower footless tights from Pamela Mann. Hippy and bohemian style influences with printed footless hosiery that make a statement. Print tights with laser cut waist-band and ankle cuff for a perfect fit!

Blooming lovely floral fashion...

As soon as the delicate petals began to unfurl, and unleash their colours and beautiful scents, this Spring, our wardrobes followed suit and began to bloom too! It's apparent that the pretty floral trend is going nowhere fast and is the print to wear, to every occasion, this Summer too.

So as the sunny garden party season descends upon us, we have put together the perfect ensemble for that special weekend BBQ bash.

Leggings are great for comfort and style at this type of occasion...but we're not talking any old leggings, we love these floral lace leggings by luxury Italian brand, Trasparenze...

SHOP- Leggings, Top, Necklace, Shoes, Sunnies, Bag

These fancy floral leggings will look gorgeous teamed with a loose, but structured, crisp white blouse - you'll look elegantly stylish and will have room to go for second helpings! Throw on a colourful statement necklace to finish the look and you have yourself a lovely outfit that will look and feel great all day and night!

Trasparenze Garden Leggings are light, pretty, unique and the perfect floral number for the SS14.
