At this time of year it’s probably pretty obvious why we are loving our tights… the cold weather being reason number one. However, there are plenty of other reasons to fall in love with hosiery this season, and we’re not just talking about the plain everyday styles.
A little black dress can be instantly updated by spending around £10 on a pair of statement tights. 3 parties, 1 dress – no problem!
The celebrity favourites
Cheryl Cole recently performed on the X Factor wearing some striking clear/black striped tights. Since she did we’ve noticed people rushing out to get the J by Jasper Conran tights pictured, these spiral lace tights were picked out by our accessories team as a top trend for the season long before Cheryl’s performance.
The striking styles
When I think of tights that stand out, House of Holland for Pretty Polly is the brand that springs to mind. When they launched, the likes of Agyness Deyn and Pixie Geldof were wearing them everywhere and the styles just get better and better with each season – there are even socks this time around too. For a more grown up take on striking tights, try a brand like Emilio Cavallini
In the office we’ve got a top pick when it comes to your essential black opaque tights. J by Jasper Conran’s luxury velvet touch tights are the ultimate in comfort and they look great too. At 100 denier, they are thick and warm, but have a subtle sheen to keep them dressy enough when you need it. The perfect pair, and we’ve all been testing them out in the office. I’m also a fan of grey tights as an alternative to black, I’m wearing these grey striped tights today in fact.
