… Footless, toeless, sheer, opaque, lace, fishnet, tummy slimming, thigh skimming, tights! No longer the boring skin toned, leg coverers they used to be, now you can have a different pair in a different colour for every outfit!
To avoid the Nora Batty look choose a modern funky pair to complete your outfit and keep your legs warm! Coloured tights are great for adding a splash of colour to an other wise plain outfit. Dark purple and teal green tights work well this time of year and add subtle colour injection to a winter wardrobe. Or if you’re feeling a shade braver, try bright red tights, worn with black or navy. A colour corresponding accessory or garment (such as a bag or a cute winter hat) will help to tie in with the tights. But don’t go over board on matching colours!
Patterned tights have also returned to the high street, although these can be more difficult to match with an outfit they are good fun! Again try to keep the basic outfit simple if you’re adding patterned tights and try to highlight some of the shades in the pattern in your outfit too.
