She's Got Legs - And She Knows How to Accentuate Them

When fashion writers and bloggers talk about accessorizing, they usually focus on the same things: shoes, purses, jewelry. But there's one accessory that (in my opinion anyway) often gets overlooked - tights.

Wearing fun, funky tights - or leggings or pantyhose - in bold colors or designs is a great and easy way to add some pizazz to a basic tunic or dress. Forget flashy jewelry or handbags, it's what covers your legs that will get you a lot more attention. Let me show you a few examples...

These sheer, French-cut pantyhose from Leg Avenue have a flower pattern that's subtle and sexy.




These horizontal striped capri leggings are a good way to add some spice to your wardrobe.




There's no way people could miss you when you're rockin' these fun polka dot tights (they also come in pink)!




And I love the sexy detail of the hook-and-eyes going up the calf on these leggings.



One "rule" when it comes to wearing statement legwear - keep it simple. Stick with solid colors on top, so you don't have a pattern that's competing with your tights.
