The sun’s gone in so the tights come out. Just to be clear, I’m not talking lightweight transparent ones – it’s straight to thick, black insulators. Winter salvation can be found in 100 denier tights. We’ve all been there: you’ve got a beautiful dress and you’re contemplating whether or not you should wear it because you’re not sure if you can hack the cold. Save yourself the hassle and purchase a pair of good quality insulating tights.
I’m apathetic about tights and usually get bored of them. During winter, they become routine like brushing my teeth. I don’t really think about them (mostly because there’s not much to think about… well, at least I thought) and always stick to black tights.
Lately, I’ve been learning more about wearing patterned and intricately designed tights. A brand I’ve come to respect is Wolford. Founded over 50 years ago, the Austrian brand makes luxury tights like no other. During the week, I went into their store for a casual browse and stumbled across a gem of woven luxury.
Their Felicitas tights are beautifully made. They are quite opaque, but the added small appliquéd bow detail drew me in. I also picked up the Linnea tights in black (there was a nude option but I wasn’t sure it would compliment my skin tone) featuring an elegant seam that finishes with an interwoven ribbon and bow. It’s a little sexy but in the most tasteful way.
