Leg Adornment

The Thighs Have It: Garters Are Making a Modern Comeback

Who said the super-hot choker trend was just for your neck?

We girls are always looking for new ways to adorn ourselves. Earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets and hair accessories are all embellishments we like to wear daily. I recently wrote about trends at Coachella and how the revival of the '90s-era choker was a dominating trend among the festival crowd. It also happens to be one of my favorite accessories, which inspired me to come up with a few new ways to wear this "it" piece. The age-old garter belt look came to mind and I thought, "Why not adorn our legs with a bit of jewelry, ribbons or flowers?" 

For this silvery evening outfit I wrapped my legs with two matching bands from Krispen. These rhinestone bands with snap closures can be used as leg-chokers, boot collars or double wrapped as bracelets.

To compliment this floral tunic, I wrapped a rose floral and yellow daisy headband.

This dress, boots and gloves call for a moto look, so I bought some silver studded ribbon at High Fashion Fabrics. A very inexpensive way to spice up an outfit.

Time for a sno-cone at Bungalow. My floral shorts and pink bralette called for colorful accessories. I adorned my legs here with floral headbands and a pink leg ribbon that the rave-girls like to wear.

No reason you can't adorn your pants or jeans with some flowers too!
