Omsa Design Fall Winter collection...enchanting beauty.

"Dream or reality? Performing passions and legs..

Against the background of a theatre, all-clear for eccentric charm, the Omsa woman makes her entrance. A showy woman who can play the most fantastic role. An invitation to excess, fun and seduction, passions and visions creating metamorphosis. Omsa stockings are the costumes that bring the observer in another dimension in which everything is possible. Our woman is the protagonist of a play in which expressing herself in a thousand ways exploring her potential: art-deco, pierrot-woman, roaring years vamp, divine of 40ies, impeccable lady, classic dancer ... to feel different in any moment, always being herself."

In Style tips - How to look Cozy-Chic

Slim Your Silhouette With Leggings

Your favorite roomy wrap sweater needs only one thing to go from couch to street—leggings! The stretchy (hence comfy) pant creates a slender bottom half, balancing out your sweater's bulk. Add a waist-defining beltand leg-lengthening platforms like Rihanna for a chic, cold-proof look!

Sexy legs are back in vogue!

SEXY legs are making a statement for budget-conscious women as hemlines rise.
 Winter stocking sales are soaring, with major brands reporting an increase of 65-70 per cent on this time last year for their collections of kaleidoscope colours and kooky-print tights.
Economists in the US, where hosiery sales have also skyrocketed, dubbed the craze a new "Lipstick Index" for measuring consumer sentiment during financial downturns.
Lipstick purchases have tended to grow during periods of economic hardship, with women buying make-up instead of expensive clothes and accessories, and now hosiery appears to be part of that trend.
Demand for fashionable legwear is being driven by the mini-skirt craze this season, as well as the affordability of hosiery for stylish women who want to update their wardrobe cheaply. Shoppers are getting more adventurous, with hosiery in modern, bold designs including crocodile skin and polka dots, and bright block colours such as hot pink, becoming increasingly popular over traditional flesh-toned, sheer pantyhose.
Marlene Smillie, of hosiery importer Ambra Corporation, said there had been an increase of up to 70 per cent over the past 12 months of coloured opaque and patterned tights. 
"Savvy shoppers know that with a small investment of between $15 and $30 they can totally update their look and fashionability of an outfit," Ms Smillie said.

Easy DIY tights!

hansel from basel!

Dazzling legs are only a quick fix away! Get your sawing kit out and have fun creating your very own masterpiece.

Embellished Tights

What you'll need:
Black or nude nylon tights (50 or 70 denier will work best!)
Sequins and beads
Hot glue gun
Thin cardboard to put inside the tights as you work
1. Cut the insert board into a rounded rectangle to fit into the tights. This prevents the hot glue from sticking the tights together.
2. Lay out the sequins or beads in your preferred pattern
3. Dot hot glue onto the center of each sequin, then gently but firmly place on tights.
4. Loosen the cardboard off the embellishments once the glue dries.
5. Go out and show off your work of art!

Colour Me Beautiful!

Colour was a very strong theme at Balenciaga this season. Nicolas Ghesqure has presented in New York a bold collection of structured, high-tech pieces paired with the brightest hosiery we have seen so far on the runaway!
Models wore towering platforms inspired by the French industrial designer Charlotte Perriand and on their legs, were yellow, red, green, a rainbow of jewels-coloured  tights.
Perhaps not a trend that everyone can embrace, but it surely gets our thumb up for beating winter blues. Still not sure if it is for you? Well, just keep in mind these simple guidelines and jump in!
  • Slim legs can practically wear any colour of the rainbow. The brighter the better!
  • If you are not super confident about your pins, don't worry, you can still wear colour and look fabulous. You will find darker hues like purple, indigo, olive or burgundy more flattering.
  • Petite frames should opt for colour with vertical details (stripes, embroidery, appliqués) that will create a lengthening effect.
  • Forget your ballet pumps for today and wear with platform heels or chunky ankle boots!
And yes, the Balenciaga hosiery will be for sale with a  whopping $100 price tag, but you can get yours for so much less at SweetPins.com.au!
