The name says it: The Diamond Heel Stockings by Secrets in Lace are real head-turners, but still glamorous and timeless – just as real diamonds. A black seam finishes the beautiful look of these fully fashioned stockings.

The Anya Outline Nylons are very special: They have a black outlined European heel and therefore look super glamorous.

Glamorous Stockings with thrilling Seams: Hosiery in the Colour of Love
Even a simple black seam is quite unusual, nowadays. Colourful seams are even more striking, especially when the colour is a strong red. The stockings by What Katie Did* are not fully fashioned and therefore don’t have a “real seam”. Furthermore, they are not true nylons, which means they don’t wrinkle. Stockings like these are perfect for special occasions like Valentine’s Day or a romantic dinner with your love. A red seams looks great in combination with a dress/skirt in the same colour, or a classy little black dress.

Glamorous Tights with thrilling Seams: Quotes
Who would have thought that stockings and tights can be philosophical? Quotes like “Love”, “Live your Dream” or “Follow your Passion” might usually be banal, on hosiery, though, they are simply amazing! These kind of stockings/tights go very well as a modern stylistic inconsistency together with vintage and retro outfits.
Glamorous Stockings with thrilling Seams: Seductive Hosiery by Agent Provocateur
A seductive alternative to philosophical phrases are stockings with wicked quotes like these by Agent Provocateur*. Or what about a seam in form of a snake*? Stockings like these are not really suitable for everyday life. They are a wonderful choice for a romantic dinner with your love, a burlesque show, or a visit at the varieté theater, though.
Glamorous Tights with thrilling Seams: Lacings & Cut-outs
When it’s getting cold and uncomfortable outside, I prefer warm and opaque tights. But even these can be quite glamorous and thrilling. Especially when they have lacings* or cut-outs* instead of a seam at the back. Of course such tights look amazing together with vintage (inspired) autumn/winter outfits.
