The leg dilemma

Sunday, December 20, 2015

So you're going to a holiday party and you have a fabulous dress, but what do you wear on your legs? I get this question all the time so here's my advice.

If you don't mind running from the car to your party without anything on your legs, I happen to love the bare leg look.  Of course this time of the year our legs may need a bit of color, so I recommend a bronzer with a little sheen like Caudalie Divine Legs.  I love this lotion that conveniently dispenses in a pump bottle. It does go on dark so I mix it with my favorite body lotion, which happens to be Amazing Grace by Philosophy This way I get more control with the color, a nice scent and lots of hydration.
Be sure to wash your hands well after applying!

If you are uncomfortable with your legs due to veins or other concerns, try a leg make-up such as Dermablend  This incredible hydrating formula covers stretch marks, veins, tattoos and more. 
It comes in a variety of shades and is suitable for sensitive skin. Many of my clients swear by it.

If going bare-leg isn't your thing, no worries!  Hosiery is perfectly acceptable as long as it's super sheer and as close to your natural skin tone as possible. You don't want it to look like your'e wearing anything! Here are some of my favorite lines.

Donna Karan--the nudes --toe-less for open toe shoes and control top!

Wolford is known for their sheer hosiery with beautiful shape and control.
They cost more but are well worth it. If you carefully hand-wash them, they should last a long time.

The other alternative is to wear a very sheer black pantyhose.  Black can be super sexy when paired with a fabulous pump. This control top style from Calvin Klein has a slight shimmer without being too shiny, perfect for the holidays!

If you really want to keep your legs warm, or just want a different look, try opaque tights.
Tights look fabulous with high boots or booties. 

Here are a few of these looks.
