Tights are a super easy (and cheap) way to mix up your outfit and add a splash of fash to your current clothes. We’ve scoured the high street for the very best buys, from sparkly styles perfect for party season, to cozy winter woolens for truly toasty pins.
Try the barely there trend that was seen all over the catwalks from Gucci to Saint Laurent (and all of the A-listers are loving too). Go for ladder resistant styles in a pack of 2, so you never get caught with an unsightly snag!
If you’re more of a 60+ denier kinda gal, there are plenty of thick, high quality pairs out there. You can always rely on M&S to give us the goods in the undies department. Grab your trusty black pair and add a few deep jewel tones in too, we love the tweed marl tights in dark emerald – perfect paired with some contrasting velvet sandals.
New look always nail their hosiery section, choose from sparkly styles to party all night long in or woolen wonders to keep those pins super snug, even during the chilliest of winters.
If you really want to copy the catwalks, get Gucci inspired with Urban Outfitters homage to the laddered lace style, also H&M have just dropped an exact match to Burberry’s Aw16 style. Take the embroidery trend to the next level and layer up with Transperenze statement floral number – very Valentino! Or make like the street style set with fishnet styles that look super stylish teamed with ripped denim and chunky sandals.
And if money is no object, you can always opt for the Swarovski crystal studded pair that come with a whopping £89.99 price tag! Or, buy the lot (bar these) and spend the rest on a whole outfit to wear them with.
Often an overlooked item in your underwear arsenal, tights are guaranteed the best item to invest in; that will take you well into next season (bar the wooly ones in summer, natch).
