Traditional stockings and suspenders are the perfect choice for Valentine's Day or simply a romantic evening. They are sure to make you feel beautiful. Gio Point and Cuban Heel are a good choice if you like the fully fashioned seamed style, alternatively Gerbe Passion have a feminine lace top and are a little thicker on a cold night. Also worth considering are the Gerbe Sun Satin stockings, which are slightly more sheer and add a lovely sheen to the leg. If it is silk stockings you are after, then we have a wonderful pair from Paris.
Obviously, if you do decide on stockings, you will need a suspender belt to hold them in place. Perhaps consider one of our incredibly comfortable and classical suspender belts (also called garter belts), or even a whole new lingerie outfit.
Hold Ups are a great in between for those of you who wouldn't choose stockings but want to try something different. These will add elegance and are very attractive. Perhaps a pair of the classical Falke Seidenglatt 15, which have a plain sheer leg with a lace top if you like something subtle to go with the little black dress. For a safe bet, perhaps try the Wolford hold ups or Falke Lunelle 8 for their beautiful shine.
If you prefer to wear tights then you could go for a seamed pair like the Gerbe Fatal 15 or Falke High Heel, to make you feel special. They elongate your legs and draw the eye. Perhaps you may fancy something a bit more daring, if so, wear something with a pattern, like the Ballerina tights that have an intricate design. For the ultimate in luxury tights, we also have the Parisian suspender tights - a perfect crossover between tights and stockings.
Valentine's Day is always the perfect excuse to try out some new glamorous stockings, hold ups or tights. You will feel special, and your partner will certainly appreciate it. So treat yourself, or your partner, and if you should need further inspiration, take a look at our Valentines Collection.Happy Valentine's,
