Grazia: Better Than Bare Leg Look Tights

Grazia 20/07/10

After spotting that Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s utterly flawless legs were down to the secret of “cosmetic tights”, Grazia decided to investigate the makeover of tan tights – stating that they are “in the midst of a massive, if secret, fashion revival”. This summers trend for bare legs can be traumatic for those without perfect pins – so “the logical thing to do is cheat”. Wolford’s Luxe 9 Tights are a celebrity favourite – as seen on the legs of Beyonce, Carla Bruni, Claudia Schiffer and SJP. Pretty Polly’s Naturals range is another favourite for looking “as if you are not wearing tights”, but the winner is Falke’s Shelina range! Our very own founder and hosiery expert, Laura Godsal, was even quoted in the article saying “When I am wearing my Shelinas, people always say to me ‘I cannot believe you are wearing tights’. We have noticed a massive surge in sales of all natural tights, which is usual in the summer, but this year we are already 15 percent up. The toeless Shelina has taken the biggest leap in sales because you can wear them with sandals an no one knows”. So as Grazia put it – “you will never have a bad leg day again!”
