When the weather is turning one of things I always recommend is to add tights and boots to a dress to give it a whole new look and take it forward into the change in season. So that’s why "My Pick of the Week” is Spanx Control Top Fishnets and their New Convertible Leggings.
I am sure you are familiar with Spanx shape wear that gives you a smooth silhouette under your favorite outfits. All of us at Lee Lee’s Valise have been having lots of fun with the new additions to the Spanx line.
I don’t know about you…but I am so over the pantyhose look. I know those of you in corporate have to be conservative but when you don’t try the fishnets! We tried the Spanx Control Top Fishnets and absolutely love them! They come in three colors: black, nude and bittersweet. The fishnet has some stretch to it which makes them comfortable to wear. Also they stop mid thigh so that you won’t start a fire with the netting! Instead a nice smooth feel without any grid butt either. Just be careful with the top area it will run so watch those nails and treat them like stockings.
With all the tunics and craze about leggings this season you should always make sure to wear them correctly. Spanx has now produced a Convertible Legging with their familiar shaping we love so much. You may wonder if they are really opaque when viewing their packaging. Well ladies yes they are! We all wore them one day when we couldn’t decide what to wear considering the contradictory weather forecasts. Bare leg or tights? The convertible leggings won! If you wore last year’s footless tights from Spanx you might have had some issues with their sheerness. These leggings, I promise are opaque! They are available in black, charcoal, bittersweet and violet. What a pop to an outfit “Violet!!!”
Remember Spanx has a non-binding waistband so you won’t see the dent on your tummy while getting the smoothing and shaping that ordinary leggings don’t provide. They used a soft matte yarn that just makes you feel great. Lastly, you can wear them at your ankle with a flat or tuck them under your heel for when you want more of a tight look. Any peep toe that you have been dying to wear but not sure with what tights…this may be your answer!
You can easily order them off the Spanx website. Or better yet support your local retailer and purchase them from your neighborhood shop!
