While we may have been happy with ordinary opaque tights last year, this is 2009 – we’ve been stuck in a recession for what feels like ages and we want some excitement in our lives, even if it is simply via our tights!
Looking ahead, the Washington Post reckons that’s exactly what the fashion houses are going to come up with for us as autumn approaches, since the catwalks have been positively glimmering.
"Designers at Miu Miu, Cynthia Rowley and Emanuel Ungaro embellished, encrusted and enhanced neutral-hued legwear by piling on glimmering, shimmering stones and gems," the publication points out.
It suggests trying out hosiery stitched with a few tasteful crystals in order to make the trend wearable for a night out.
As usual, your wish is our command – we have the very thing in Bebaroque’s Viper Luxx Tights, which have a floral pattern and scattered crystals in gold and pink.
