Since returning to the UK, I dread winter. I hate the cold, grey skies depress me and constant central heating makes me feel stuffy and lethargic. A friend once said to me, ‘but don’t you miss the changing seasons’? The seasons do change in Spain, and once you have acclimatised, the winter evenings can be really cold – but during the day the sun is out and the sky is blue, fantastic. Love it. Still, I guess we have to make the most of what we have and ‘wrapping up’ is a normal part of living through the British winter.
Tights have always played an important part in keeping warm and looking great through the cold season, especially for the office where it may not considered acceptable to wear leggings. Winter tights these days can be just as thick and warm as leggings and offer as much protection from the elements as their footless cousins. If you walk through London in rush hour during Autumn/Winter, you are likely to see hundreds of identical legs in plain black opaques, however with the vast range of opaques in various deniers, patterns and styles available for Winter 2013, it doesn’t need to be that way. Thick coloured tights, when matched with plain clothing can be just as suitable for the office as black, but if you choose to remain with dark or neutral colours, you can liven up your legwear by buying a pair with delicate prints or embroidery.
For those lucky women who don’t have to go to work, stay at home mums, or homeworkers, they can take advantage of the full range of winter fashion tights available. Bright colours, metallics, retro styles, tights with a distinct design or bold
pattern are all available to combine with many outfits and other accessories to give you a perfect look for the Autumn / Winter season. Thick patterned tights are a great way to enable you to keep wearing your favourite short skirts despite
the cold, as well as being a fun way to liven up or revitalise any outfit.
Tights are a fantastic winter fashion accessory – practical, warm, fashionable, functional and sexy to boot. Team some of the Autumn/Winter collections of thick opaques with fur accessories and you will be bang on trend and adopting the
only stylish way to cope with the cold weather. Take a look at our thick opaques and fur accessories, team them together and have a wonderful and warm 4th Quarter!
