A wonderful reader pointed me toward Voet Leg Bandeaux ages ago, but I'm ashamed to admit that I can't find that correspondence. If it was you, dear reader, sing out! I'm so grateful for the tip! I now have a set of all three colors in my possession* and am absolutely enamored of them.
This ingenious product allows you to create layered legwear looks without having to pile on bonus pairs of socks. The bandeaux are loops of lace that you slip onto your calves and arrange so that they peek out of your boot tops. Here, I'm wearing mine with bare legs, but they look fantastic layered over opaque tights, too.
My feet get hot and sweaty in most nylon socks, but I adore how they look. These leg bandeaux allow me to wear my favorite cotton ankle socks, but look like I'm wearing something far fancier. Love it. These little lovelies come in three sizes, and fit calves from about 12" to 16.5".
