Retro Backseams with a Twist
Iâ€™m a little obsessed with bright contrast seam stockings right now. Itâ€™s getting colder here in the US as winter is creeping up, and itâ€™s time to start covering our legs before they freeze right off! Retro-inspired seamed stockings are as classic and glamorous as they come, but the new trend of having a bright or contrasting color seam adds an extra detail that I find irresistible. It flashes ever-so-subtly as your cross your legs, and everyone will want to watch you walk away!
My fixation started with these nude and red Jonathan Aston stockings. I got a pair a few months ago, and have been desperately waiting for the fall to come so I can find an occasion to wear them out!
These stark backseams also have the great bonus of making your legs appear longer and leaner – so show them off! It is, however, a bit difficult to find a wide variety of colors. My dream would be to have a stocking wardrobe full of pairs similar to the Jonathan Aston ones, but in several different colors like purple or blue! If I ever find them, of course The Lingerie Post readers will be the first to know. And if you find some, please let us know in the forums!
