FOUR DEGREES OF SEPARATION FROM PANTYHOSE
Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against pantyhose. They add depth for winter. Yellow, gray, white, polka dot, opaque or veiled, they can be great, it all depends on how you wear them and what you wear them with (see the pantyhose fregola). An outright NO to tights it is like giving up lard for religious reasons: it’s only fair to sin once in a while and after all it won’t make you fat. But on the other hand, there’s no doubting the wow factor of a gorgeous bare leg under a mini skirt. And not even temperatures of minus 4 are gonna to put a stop to this fregola.
So how about some tips to take us from granny to femme fatal?
1) Don’t skimp on waxing. It may seem obvious, but after the third year of non-marriage, 50 shades of stubble can always be lurking around the corner. (And hey, they bring out a new model of silkepil every year.)
2) It’s always best to wear a pair of warm socks with boots or sandals. As well as feeling great, they also keep your body temperature safe from sudden attacks of the runs.
3) Ignore any “aren’t you cold??” remarks. It’s just the envy of she who preaches wearing flesh-colored-pop-socks.
4) Apply a bit of Tiger Balm to your thighs and calves. It’s the absolute secret to going nude. I used to use it on my hands and feet when I went skiing. It’s phenomenal for avoiding amputation when your snow boots cut off the blood supply to your big toes.
