After months of cutting back on the carbs and ensuring our pins are hair-free and beautifully moisturised, winter is finally here. At last – time to lean back, reach for the biscuit tin and embrace our opaque tights, right? Well, if the recent legwear choices of high-profile celebrities are anything to go by, wrong. It would seem that winter warming opaques and wool tights are out, in favour of natural bare legs, with The Daily Mail reporting that the likes of Victoria Beckham and Suki Waterhouse at the forefront of this, quite frankly, ludicrous trend. The MyTights team have been shaking their heads in disbelief ever since hearing rumours of this fad. Sure, bare legs are fine for A-list celebrities with a chauffeur on standby and the money to spend on daily trips to the beauty salon. But what about us normal folk who crave warm legs on our commute to the office? And why wouldn’t we want to take advantage of the wonderfully chic winter legwear on offer? To convince you all that wrapping up warm is the way to go, we’ve compiled a list of the most stylish thick and winter tights around!
- Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights – at their best teamed with denim shorts and a cable knit jumper, these stylish matte tights are available in a range of hot colours and have a 55% wool composition, for the toastiest pins around.
