This season, kitten heels are prowling the fashion runways. Look for all manner of plain and fancy sling-backs, booties, and pumps. So flattering with a skirt that floats around the knee. The look suggests long legs. And encourages a carefree walk. Which reminds us, are we well-stocked with kicky hosiery from Jane’s Vanity?
A kitten is perfect with the Liberty Black Wool Skirt from Dana Pisarra. This skirt was our coup last winter. There are still a few left. Its enchanting knee-length boasts a lace insert at front and just begs for pretty stockings. Which JV happily provides. For after-dark, it’s Falke’s Magic Evening Tights in choice of gold or silver sparkles. For daytime, Falke’s simple Diamond 10 Stay-ups give a long smooth line.
In winter, under a stylish short coat and booties, we want our legs wrapped in a bit of texture and color. Falke’s Cream Cable tight protects us with 71% wool in choice of black, hazel (tan), or mistletoe (green). The 3D knit provides a cabled effect on the legs, but is smooth through the body for ease in layering. Falke’s Soft Merino tights offer even more warmth, with wool on the outside and mostly cotton on the inside. Many colors from which to choose.
For a London edge, perhaps we’ll hark back to the 90s and try the Kate Moss look of anklets with kitten heels. In which case, we’ll love Falke’s Gleaming Hive Sock with its geometric pattern shot with lurex in choice of imperial blue, scarlet, tawny, and black.
And to ignite our little black dress? It must be “legs courtesy of Barazandeh.” We’ll go all out with the Jasmin Asymmetric Swarovski Stay-Up in black voile, hand-stitched by French craftsmen. The back seam and Cuban heel are offset (on one leg only) by a vine of hand-appliqued black crystals So there!
Well, gotta run. Time to enjoy the stocking season. With Jane’s Vanity clicking at our heels.
