the best of the best of leggings

Many designer lines have come and gone at our store over the eleven years we have been in business. One of the lines that has remained on our shelves the entire time is Ilux. We started just with socks and then quickly learned about their awesome leggings, which are now one of our most popular items. Simply said, they are the best leggings I have ever worn. Each year they seem to perfect them a little bit more and this year is no exception. They are so comfortable, they hold up in the wash, they don’t sag at your knees and they are so thick they perform more like a pant than a legging.

This year we added a great new legging called the Audrey. It has a slit in the back so it is a little dressier and is a great addition to any wardrobe. I will admit once the cold weather hits there aren’t many days where I am not wearing a pair of Ilux leggings. Here is a slide show so you can see our selection this year and look for styling tips in the weeks to come!


  • The latest from Elizabeth
I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
