I love the electric tribal print on the fashion tights, they capture the essence of the geometric collections displayed at NYFW and LFW perfectly.

Brand SPANXing new Shapewear!

You can almost guarantee that every celeb at the recent red carpet events were wearing waist cinching, bottom hugging, thigh squeezing Spanx under their beautiful gowns! If you haven't already joined the power brief revolution, you will understand why they're such a phenomenon, when you see the amazing slimming effect that Spanx have on your figure.

Founder Sara Blakely never dreamed that cutting the legs off her tights, to create some makeshift knickers for under her tight trousers, would be the beginning of a multi billion dollar idea! After Oprah, Gwyneth Paltrow and Julia Roberts became leading advocates for the brand, her simple idea proved to be a very lucrative light bulb moment!

We are so exciting to now have Spanx shape wear and control tights online at Essexee Legs

The perfect silhouette with the worlds most famous shape wear. Tone your tummy, thighs and bottom with the fabulous body shaper suit, shaper slip, power brief and more...

Spanx Super Higher Power Shaper is my personal fave! They streamline beautifully and make fitted dresses fit comfortably without unsightly VPL's or any lumps and bumps! Because of the convenient cotton double gusset, you don't need to remove your shape wear when you visit the powder room! Bonus! They are also available in Black for your LBDs! 

In-Power™ Line features mega compression zones, sleek cling-free yarns and a powerful, amped up, tummy taming panel. The super higher power, high-waisted, shaper tames your tummy and creates an hourglass silhouette.

Go Dotty for Spot Tights!

After Beyonce and Cat's stunning appearances in thier spot hosiery, everyone seems to have gone dotty for them! Spot tights are absolutely everywhere at the moment and after featuring the Charnos Spot Mesh Tights (S/M/L&XL) in last weeks post, we thought we'd share our Charnos XeLence Mini Spot Tights from the fashion tights plus size collection too. The Charnos Xelence range is exclusively designed for curvy ladies and these plus size pantyhose are spot on with the current dotty trend and guarantee comfort from sizes 16 to 32.  
The reason that they are everywhere is that spot tights  are so wearable and they add a fun but subtle twist to any outfit! 
To create the perfect size, Charnos XeLence hosiery is tried and tested to get the correct balance on the leg length and width, resulting in hosiery that is NOT too tight, or too baggy.
The tights have a non-conventional, anti-roll, waistband with a single layer construction and ultra soft lycra fibre, eliminating unsightly and uncomfortable red marks.
Sheer yarns are used around the body area giving a light weight and keeping you cooler, and there are no panels or extra seams, resulting in a smooth line under clothing and no VPL’s.
Go on, go dotty, it is Friday after all!

NYFW Watch - Cat Deeley

Cat Deeley rocked up at the Lincoln Centre to attend the Monique Lhuillier NYFW show looking utterly gorgeous.

Her one shoulder lace top looked pretty and delicate, whilst her monochrome print skirt, spot tights and killer heels added a quirky edge that work fabulously together.

Cat had a whale of a time in the front row of the show and has induced major fashion envy in all of us at Essex'ee Legs...just look at those pins...and those shooooes!!!

Colour Pop at New York Fashion Week 2014

Since it began last week we have been on NYFW watch here at Essex'ee Legs! I've been devouring the press updates from each show, the street style snippets of glamorous celeb spectators and keeping an eye on newly emerging trends.

One trend that really jumped out was the pops of vibrant colour used by designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais (the designers behind Ruffian) and Altuzarra.

Shining like a welcoming beacon amid the shades of grey, black and other neutral tones that have so far dominated the runways, both labels presented a refreshingly vibrant and beautiful AW14 collections.

Ruffian AW14
We were excited to see coloured tights featuring heavily in Ruffian's collection. Lots of block colouring and clashing brights made up the ultra-feminine line and illuminated the runway. A cinched in waist and flared skirt was my particular favourite recurring look!

Get ahead of the fashion pack and colour block your wardrobe to cheer up a winter day with Jonathan Aston 40 Denier Opaque Tights...

Get in on the 1920s Gatsby Trend!

I've always, absolutely, adored vintage fashion, particularly the embellished dresses, feathers, diamonds and pearls of the 1920s. When F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1920s novel, The Great Gatsby was revived by film producer Baz Luhrmann last year, it inspired a wave of roaring 20s themed parties, balls, and plenty of flapper style fashion. The catwalks and celebrities wardrobes were all influenced and now the high street is flooded with beautiful vintage dresses and accessories inspired by the Gatsby era.
patterned tights

Hosiery is no exception! With Essex'ee Legs stocking these gorgeous Jonathan Aston Faith Tights and Gipsy Fan Lace Tights, you can dress your pins vintage style, in these gorgeous 1920s fan patterned lace tights.

The Great Gatsby

The film itself produced lots of visually, breath taking scenes, and the stunning costumes certainly added to the magic. Carey Mulligan, as Daisy, sparkled in every shot, whether it be in a gorgeous print flapper dress and pretty silk headscarf, or bejewelled from, head to toe, in a beautifully luxe embellished dress and a magnificent diamond headband. You also couldn't miss the fishnets and silk top stockings being flashed by many of the flapper girls, dancing the Charleston, at one of Gatsby's wild parties.

The films costume and production designer, Catherine Martin commented-
"In the 1920s, hosiery was a very important part of a woman's wardrobe."

She sums up hosiery's role during this decade in fashion history, saying it was:
"...a tantalizing glimpse at what was under women's dresses."

So if you have your own Gatsby inspired event to attend, or any party for that matter, although Essex'ee Legs stock an array of gorgeous fishnet tights, stockings and seamed hosiery worthy of the original flapper girls pins, it's the lace pantyhose featured above that will add a modern edge to your vintage themed outfit. The gorgeous net hosiery both feature decedent fan patterns that is distinctive of 1920s fashion and will ensure that you stand out from the rest.

1920s fashion

Now, what to wear with your pretty lace tights...check out rockmyvintage to get your hands on one of these beautiful 1920s dresses. Add a pretty headband, some pearls and sparkles from their accessories section to complete your modern day flapper girl look.

Have a fabulous evening, wherever it may be and remember...
