‘Calze’ is the Italian word for stockings, so Calzedonia is the place to go for flattering leg wear, and this season they have stunning styles on offer. The Fall Winter collection is divided into several lines, each with its own character.If it’s glamorous luxury you seek the Noblesse Oblige range recalls the opulence of bygone fashion, with echoes of damask and tapestry, black velvet and gold. Check out the chintzy leggings with printed roses, or beautiful burgundy tights with floral motifs and sprinkles of blue dewdrops. Or for evening, black tights or leggings with a bold, go-for-gold paisley pattern would look stunning with a plain dark dress.
There are also shimmery golden tights with a Christmassy feel, and some sexy black numbers with leather and lace inserts. New Old School is just right for the fashionable preppy look, based on British traditional patterns. Here you will find modern versions of country club style with checks and plaids and this season’s favorite, polka dots. Or go geometric in diamond-patterned tights, or stripes of grey, black and burgundy. Going Public offers a more tweedy look, with plaid and hounds tooth check, herringbone and shades-of-grey chevrons.
The tartan collection has red tartan socks and tights – and leggings, for real Pizzazz – or grey and black tartan for a more understated look. Raw and Chic is a back-to-basics style reflecting the home knits of yesteryear. Show a glimpse of thigh above over-the-knee fawn socks in a chunky knit. Stay warm in cashmere, fine wool or angora. Retro chic is the byword here, offering home comfort in the form of cosy foot and leg wear.Elegance and style is to be found throughout the current Calzedonia collection, but if you want something really original you might go for the show-stopping grey tights printed with images of Venice.
