For anyone who loves old movies, there’s always the scene where the heroine flashes her garter belts and you think: “Wow, I wish I lived back then, when women really embraced sexy stockings and put so much time and effort into getting dressed.” But then, come morning, you yank on your plain ol’ boring black opaque tights and run out the door.
No one is asking you to surrender your panty hose or tights any time soon—technology has made them too comfy and convenient—but Italian-made hosiery brand Erica M is definitely bringing sexy back with its incredible collection.
Featuring sheers and opaques with “built in” garters and other sexy elements, the legwear is available in a variety of patterns and styles.
How you wear them is up to you. Flash your “garters” peeking out of a miniskirt or shorts, or conceal them as you would lingerie for that inner secret. We particularly loves the Lourdes style (shown at right), which can easily be worn under a longer skirt or dress and no one will know about the lovely patterns hidden beneath…unless of course you want them to (wink, wink)!
