As autumn slides seamlessly into winter it’s time to come out of denial, delve into the back of the wardrobe and dig out those winter knits. When commuting on bitter winter mornings, we at MyTights.com are especially thankful for woolly tights – the first line of defence against chilly knees!
Now I know what you are thinking but wool tights have come a long way since our school days. To prove it, we have a selection of the most luxurious, sophisticated and funky wool tights on the market.
If you’re nervous about trying wool tights or you just want a classic look then you might want to try these Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights. They might be as warm as toast but you can still see a hint of leg underneath meaning that they are as flattering as your trusty opaques.
Cashmere has to be the ultimate in luxury winter fabrics so the Elegance Cashmere Blend Tights, also from Falke, have to be the choice in indulgence for your legs. The great thing about the subtle but wide ribbing on these tights is that they make your legs look longer and thinner. These are a definite winner if you want to keep wearing your shorter skirts well into winter. The cream woolen feel tights are seen here> are a great choice for winter weather.
For those that favour hold ups, Trasparenze has come up with the goods with its Jennifer Wool hold–ups, which are as soft as kittens and look wonderfully sophisticated.
Knitted tights can also be highly decorative. These Trasparanze Sebille tights have a sexy diamond crochet pattern running from the hips to the toes. They will give a dressed up look to any outfit and are great for giving warmth, as well as elegance, in the evening. No-one need know how warm and practical they actually are.
If you still can’t face wool tights but you still want to be super warm, Pretty Polly has just created these eye catching Argyle print tights, which are 70% cotton. They’ll look just as good with a pair of sensible brogues as they will with heels, and we think they are perfect to brighten up a gloomy winter day.
Woollen tights are not just for school girls, they are super practical but can also be stylish and sexy.
