Once thought of as the preserve of the young, now the celebs are leading the way showing us how to embrace coloured tights at any age.
For the Kids
Children can wear bright colours with ease, for example Obama’s daughters wore coloured tights in aubergine and violet along with similarly coloured coats. To dress your girls in this matchy matchy style go for the Country Kids Warmer Cotton Tights available in both plum and purple shades, these 82% cotton tights are an excellent way to spoil your little ones. Or if you adore classic opaque white tights, fashioned here by the pint-sized fashionista Harper Beckham, then team the Pex Cotton Rich Children’s Tights along with some sweet ballet shoes.
In Your 20s-40s
Your 20s and 30s are the perfect time to indulge in a big of experimentation with bold colour clashes à la Dianna Agron from Glee. Coloured tights with a sheer toe like the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights are perfect for teaming with peep toes or indeed platform sandals like Miss Agron’s pair. It is easy to get into a rut of constantly wearing black opaque tights, however in your 40s it’s a great time to team that favourite LBD with some flattering shades like wine and navy. Steal Claudia Schiffer’s style (yes please!) by matching tan suede ankle boots along with a patterned shirt dress, over-sized bag and the ultra soft Aristoc 80 Denier Microfibre Tights in burgundy.
In Your 50s +
For an elegant way to add a splash of colour to your look, channel Twiggy and team royal purple opaque tights such as the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Opaque Tights in Flo Purple with a metallic gold dress and a black jacket with matching black leather pumps. With such a multitude of shades and brands on offer the options really are endless!
