SHOPPING NYC: 260NoMad’s Wolford Sample Sale

It’s been a very long time since our last sample sale highlight, mainly because both our strength against shopping and our bank account are both low. Although neither has increased, we’ll still take the opportunity to bring you the details of the Wolford Sample Sale, an amazing women’s fashion and accessories sale brought to you by 260 Sample Sale.

Wolford is synonymous with effortless sophistication, true confidence, multi-functionality and holistic comfort, the company creates versatile yet beautiful pieces. Over the years, we’ve had the very fashionable pleasure of owning a few Wolford tights, regarded as some of the sexiest legwear in the world, and we’re definitely ready to own some more. Wolford also has a major celebrity following; the famed tights have graced the legs of many celebrities, including Katy Perry, Kate Winslet, Heidi Klum, Jessica Chastain, Debbie Harry, Kate Hudson, Michelle Pfeiffer, etc. You’ll be in great style company in Wolford.

NYFW the Shows: Hanes Hosiery at Bibhu Mohapatra Show

If we’ve learned anything from the long, chilly spring, tights, and basically all types of legwear, were essential. Obviously, Bibhu Mohapatra and Hanes Hosiery anticipate another cold Spring in 2016 because the legwear giant graced the legs of models at the Bibhu Mohapatra Spring 2016 Show during NYFW the Shows. These looks are just three of the runway looks which featured Hanes Hosiery at Bibhu Mohapatra Show. As you can see the tights are perfectly paired with Bibhu’s mix of elegant high-end day looks.

Hanes Hosiery at Bibhu Mohapatra Show

After seasons upon seasons of bare legs dominating the spring collection runway shows and red carpet appearances, legwear is finally getting a chance to shine during the slightly warmer season. Who better to make this debut than Hanes Hosiery, whose smoothing tights and pantyhose were incorporated into the runway show to create a timeless look.

Hanes Hosiery and Bibhu Mohapatra

“My spring collection is inspired by the Bauhaus movement and because of the bold and confident spirit of that woman, legs became an important part of the look,” says Mohapatra. “The Hanes Hosiery helps complete that look.”

Although the fall season is usually the season of legwear, if last spring was any indication, we expect to see many of these spring 2016 looks we saw paired with Hanes Hosiery. We already have our Hanes Black Out tights in reserve, we suggest you do the same. Now tell us ladies, what do you think of Hanes Hosiery at Bibhu Mohapatra Show? Will you be wearing tights with your spring looks this spring?

Hanes Hosiery Celebrates 75th Anniversary of Nylon Stockings & New Silk Reflections Collections

To kick-off to Fall season, and to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Nylon Stockings, Hanes Hosiery held an event where they introduced the #Legsie, the hot new way to share your look on social media, along with their new Silk Reflections Legwear collection. The collection of soft, premium yarns featured dazzling sheers, playful new colors, styles, and textures, and perfectly blended sheerness and opacity to create luxe sheers. The collection offers a variety of sheer prints, lots of shimmer, sensual embellished backseams, and an ultra-chic square dot, giving a new twist to classic sheer hosiery, making it seasonless.

The elegant soiree, aptly titled #CheersForSheers, highlighted the new youthful look and attitude of Hanes Silk Reflections. The event was hosted by Style expert and creator of That Madonna Girl Accessories, Michelle Madonna; you may recognize her floral halos (or flower crowns) adorning the heads of the event’s attendees and several celebrities. The night’s music was provided by the very handsome Celebrity DJ, Brendan Fallis.

To highlight the the benefits of wearing sheer legwear, Celebrity stylist and Hanes Hosiery “Sheerleader”, Lindsay Albanese, curated a series of YouTube style segments, and Hanes Hosiery has partnered with Teen Vogue and their #FallFive Insta-listers to celebrate the #CheersForSheers campaign. “It’s time to celebrate the flawless finish that legwear can give women and encourage them to share their love for legwear on social media!” said Angela Hawkins of Hanesbrands Inc.

The Hanes Hosiery Silk Reflections Fall 2014 collection can be found at Macy’s Herald Square. Keep an eye out for the #CheersForSheers campaign and don’t forget to share your #legsie during legwear season.
