Voet Leg Bandeaux Review and Giveaway



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".

I've got a second set of leg bandeaux in white, nude, and black to give away to one lucky Already Pretty reader! Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Follow Voet Hosiery on Twitter or like Voet Hosiery on Facebook. You MUST do one of these two to enter.
  2. Take a look at the leg bandeaux page and make sure they've got a size that will fit you.
  3. Leave a comment on this post telling us how you'd style one of your pairs if you won, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.
  4. Cross your fingers!

Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, October 23, 2011. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to everyone, including international readers. Good luck!

I liked them on fb. I would wear the black peeking out of my tall black boots with bare legs and a b&w floral skirt.

What a neat idea! I would wear the nude over black tights with black boots.

I "liked" them on facebook -

I just found a vintage leopard print dress, so that, cognac boots I still have to find and the black leg bandeauxes - I must buy some of the toe things also!

LOVE this!!!!

If I could LOVE them on FB, I would but since I can't I just liked them! :)

I'd love the black with these new black biker boots I just got. It would soften them up a bit!

I would wear the nude bandeaux with brown boots and bare legs, with a brown pencil skirt, ivory shell and leopard print cardigan. :)

I liked Voet on Facebook and followed them on Twitter!

Anna said...

Ooh, love these. I liked the facebook page.

I would wear the white ones on top of black tights, with my black boots in winter, and without the tights in the warmer months.

I love lace! Those would look super cute with my brown boots and tights with any of my flirty little dresses :)

Becky said...

I would wear the black ones with bare legs, a cute pink sundress I picked up recently, a jean jacket, and grey flat boots.

This is such a crafty idea! If I don't win, I might just look into buying a pair of these anyway. Especially in that white lace. I just bought a new pair of lovely brown leather riding boots and would love the look of white lace peeking out from the boot around my jean leg or my bare leg. Either works. Thanks Sal! kerdman@slu.edu

I would buy in two different sizesand the smaller one will be worn with booties to be shown over the ankles. Usually tights (I need them. I am a cold person) inside the boots are going slippery in some way so with these clever bandeaux(oh, la la! C'est si francais!) I can wear socks and the shown parts will be lacy.

The white or cream color would look so cute with brown boots and my plum colored full skirt.

And the lingerie toes are amazing as well. There is an eggplant pair that would look great with my shoes for the wedding!

kbraves888 said...

I would wear the white peeking out of any of my knee-high boots... I'm also wondering if they'd fit on wrists to peek out from under a long-sleeved shirt?

I would wear the black ones with a great pair of knee high purple suede boots that go killer with a dress I have!

Fun! I love this concept!

I love the look of socks peeking out of a boot - I usually go the chunky wool sock route, but having lace peeking out of the top of my most rugged boots? AWESOME!

I followed Voet Hosiery on Twitter.

I would wear them peeping out of my chunky doc marten boots with a pretty skirt and big soft jumper.

WOuld wear them to add height visually to my tall boots, since as I am tall, most of them dont come up quite to the knee. I also struggle with wearing chunky casual boots with my generally dressy wardrobe so I wonder if these would be agood bridging peice. Wish they came in colors!

Thanks for hosting!

I would wear the black ones over colored tights with black boots. I love, love, love any kind of legwear!

Shirley said...

Liked them on FB. This is my first year to venture out with boots, so I'm a newbie. But I'd wear them peaking out of either my cognac or dark-brown boots with a short(er) skirt and maybe tights (depends on the temp & my bod) for some visual interest. Thanks!

I would wear the cream/nude ones with my slouchy calf-high brown boots, or the black ones with my pink velvet Doc Martens. Or the other way around!

Em said...

I'd wear them with a lot of leather, a lot of hardware. I love the idea of that little bit of girly lace peeking out of a tough-girl ensemble. ^_^

I liked them on FB. I would wear them with a black leather biker jacket, and black leather boots, to get the whole leather /n lace look, but keep it from getting skanky with a polished sheath dress.

I follow Voet on Twitter. I'd definitely try the white ones over black tights with my black boots.

Holy cow, these are so much fun! Like on FB. It would be so much playing around with styling them! I would probably start off with the white pair along with brown cowboy books and a floral dress.

I followed on Facebook. Honestly, while I think these are gorgeous, I wear trousers most of the year. I would LOVE to put these on my upper arms, however (and my upper arms are 12" around so I think the small would fit). I live in Texas and I'm usually hot so I don't own any long-sleeve shirts. I'd love to pull the black ones on under one of my many black button-up shirts to make it a little more feminine and more wintry, but not hotter.

Awesome. I followed on Facebook.

I'd wear the white ones with motorcycle boots, and the black ones or nude ones alone or over tights to make my office wardrobe a little less work-appropriate.

NEDP said...

I'm still learning the fine art of wearing boots but I'd really love to see these mixed up to play off the texture of them. Like wearing tights of the same color and a darker boot... or even black tights with black bandeaux and a military green shirt dress. A hint of feminine with a masculine outfit.
