Texture, colour and pattern. No, it’s not your new wallpaper, it’s this winter’s twist on a pair of tights. The days of simply wearing black/nude/woollen tights to keep your legs warm and toasty are gone. This season it’s all about the statement leg. Pattern is a great way to grab attention, and if you want people to know that your legs have arrived wear some Marilyn Monroe stamp print tights by Celeste Stein ‘The American Printcess’. They are certainly striking, but I keep wondering what Marilyn’s face will look like as it hugs the kneecap, especially during knee-bending activities: a little deformed maybe? If something subtly glamorous is more your taste then splash out on these golden screen-printed tights by Bebaroque.
With black diamantes and Swarovski crystals they are definitely the royalty of the tight world, worth trying super-hard not to get a ladder in them. Tight variations are everywhere and beyond all imagination: wet-look, glittery, shiny, fishnetty, laced, ribbed, seamed, the choice is endless, but if all this is a bit too much and you’d rather keep things simple and elegant simply inject a little tasteful colour into your tight collection. These Trasparenze Avril tights in the Prugna colour might be the right ones for you, and as this lovely lady shows they’re great for even the simplest of everyday tasks -like walking the dog, but perhaps they’d be best worn with a skirt.
