Paris is known for its dazzling fashion sense, but what is it that actually adds the ‘va va voom’ dazzle factor to this city of vibrancy and grandiose? As much as you may believe what you have heard in the past, it is hardly worth investing in a £200 Louis Vuitton or Dior handbags to outdo the Parisian ‘Vogue-inspired’ fashion sense. All it takes is an inconspicuous accessory that can bring that alluring and enchanting beauty to any old outfit – sultry black stockings (SBS).

These are like a reinvention of the little black dress (LBT), with an edge on it. Below is a step by step guide on how to use this subtle accessory to have a huge impact on your fashion style.

‘Très facile’, Keep it simple – As glamorous as it may seem to layer, add and accessorise, a real fashionista would know that minimalism is the key to being classic and edgy. This means toned down colours, straight-line cuts and most important is to keep the make-up simple and natural. The 50 denier opaque black stockings are captivating enough on their own to be paired with these basic items and bring it across as sultry yet elegant, an appropriate look for the avant-garde woman of the 21st century.

Attention to detail – Following from the minimal theme, the lack of overdressing clothes and cluttering with unnecessary accessories will then allow one to pay ‘attention to detail’. For instance, a girly, floral print dress can be enhanced with a pair of opaque stockings to create a feminine yet versatile look. Because these stockings give a subtle look and leave the rest to the imagination, they are enough to add a bit of flirty playfulness to any outfit. The problem is being too concerned with layers of clothing and accessories, which takes away the focus from the finer details, such as the style of stockings that would suit a particular dress or outfit. The light touches create a greater impact on the outfit as a whole and add the correct balance of class and sensuality to any outfit.

Adapt and change – Rather than always thinking about the sophisticated side of these sultry black stockings you can also use them to add the feminine touch to a more casual or relaxed outfit. Make a cute statement when you pair them up with a short denim skirt, with rips and a pair of flats. This adds spunk to the outfit as it is balanced out well with the right mixture of roughness and elegance. The perfect nude baggy jumper can also be brought out with these as it adds fullness to the top part of the body, leaving the legs looking sleek and dainty. This shows how the opaque stockings can be adapted to a variation of outfits, such as the contrasting straight line office dress, but still adds a touch of sophistication to any outfit.

Now that we have been through the sequence of how these effeminate black stockings can add a luxurious feeling to any outfit, it is important to be able to maintain them well. The Levante Suede Matte 50 Denier Stockings are soft but strong, as they do no tear easily. Because they have a high denier, they will keep you warm during the winter months, when one may normally be hesitant to wearing stockings due to the lack of warmth that normally comes with them, in comparison to tights.
