Black tights, black pantyhose, black ribbed tights, black clothes, and a few exceptions at the Stella McCartney opening. See images over at Jezebel.

Style.com has slide shows of all the Couture shows so far, and here are a few legwear shots.

Christian Lacroix featured sheer pantyhose with floral and dot designs:

Valentine's Day: Garters, Stockings and Thigh Highs

Continuing with our Valentine's Day Gifts feature, I'd like to focus on fancy stockings and thigh highs that we have available as well as garter belts to hold up the stockings.



Our newest garter skirt, the Marlene 4 strap, is a shape forming, vintage style, open bottom skirt with four garter straps. A great addition to your lingerie wardrobe, this garter belt is made of nylon with lycra for stretch and is very form fitting. We also carry simpler 4 strap garter belts, as well as 6 strap garter belts.



To go with this retro garter skirt, try our fully fashioned, 100% nylon and vintage-style seamed stockings - available in a wide variety of colors including red and pink. We also have beautiful lace top stockings in sandalfoot.



For ultimate luxury, try our beautiful 100% silk stockings, or thigh highs.



Don't want to use a garter belt? Try fancy tie back thigh highs. Black with red or pink ribbon, these thigh highs have silicone bands in the top to keep them up without a garter belt. Looking for something a little simpler? These sexy Berkshire thigh highs come in 5 colors, including red and black, and feature a 3 inch lace top with silicone bands to keep them up.



This is just a small selection of what we have available. See our Valentine's Section for hosiery and lingerie, and see our Boudoir Accessories for more ideas.

Elegant, Beautiful Style from Alexis Mabille



Spring Couture has begun. And this is the most beautiful image that I've seen yet; well, until the shoes, I'm not sure how I feel about the shoes. I love the lines and curves created by the coat, though, and the hint of lacey lingerie. It's a simple and beautiful look. See the rest of the images here. The Christian Dior collection is also outstanding, though no lingerie or legwear to be seen.

Tights With Shorts Revisited



It's been a while since we've seen tights with shorts out and about, but it still is a great idea for a summer meets winter look. See, for example, this Urban Outfitters look over at Style.com's blog. They're talking about the sweater - which in and of itself is pretty cool - but the tights really tie it together.

Is this something you'd wear in the winter? Or would you wait till it's a little warmer? Let us know in the Comments!
