Winter is most definitely in the air ladies – and with the colder weather comes the nightmare that is hosiery! Some of you may be excited about the sudden chill in the air, and the opportunity it gives to enjoy every style of tight possible! While others of you are dreading it – do your stuffed in the back of the drawer tights reach the style bar this season or not? Thankfully, with the help of some stylish celebrities, Barratts is here to help guide you through the tights you should be wearing this season…
Thick Ribbed Tights
Think geek chic, think Alexa Chung (of course). Perfect with short skirts, tweed, dungaree dresses and skirt suits. Subtly, sexy and flattering. Pair with ankle-strap sandals for the ultimate style statement.
Less Than 10 Denier
As seen on the super stunning Miranda Kerr – who has stunning legs, and isn’t afraid to show them!! These super sheer tights will show every lump and bump, so if you’re not overkeen on your legs, then perhaps swop them for a pair of micro fishnets. Wear with ankle boots to stay way ahead of the fashion pack!
Printed and Patterned
As seen on various street snaps, and front row bloggers, these are the most fashion forward tights this winter! Think spots, think stripes, think leopard print. Basically anything goes. If you’re not the bravest on the fashion front though, it may be best to keep these for an evening look.
Worn by just about everybody, the classic black 60 denier tight is the little black dress of the hosiery world! Flattering, go with anything, and easy to pull on first thing in the morning! Great with court shoes, high heels, ankle boots, knee high boots…..anything goes really!
Worn by everyone’s favourite style icon – Sarah Jessica Parker (who incidentally has just joined Twitter). Let your legs do the talking in maroon or teal tights this winter! Or steal a look from the Meadham Kirchhoff’s show and go winter white!
