Obviously, we’ve been raving about all kinds of hosiery and funky fashion tights for years, but we’ve loved 2009 as the entire world of fashion has joined in.
The celebs really got on board with statement tights after they were all over the catwalks back in the spring and now it’s winter, they are making even more of a splash on everyone’s legs than the rest of their outfits!
The Mirror’s Celebs magazine spotted a whole host of famous faces rocking patterned tights this month, with Henry Holland for Pretty Polly a popular choice for Agyness Deyn, Una from The Saturdays, Fearne Cotton and, erm, Cheryl from Hollyoaks.
However, there were so many other styles and designs that it proved really anything goes – Juliette Lewis wore red tights with glittery circles, Taylor Swift sported herringbone-patterned lovelies and Sadie Frost went for white lace to create a classy, Jackie O-style look.
There you go – proof that you should definitely experiment with patterned tights if you’ve never tried them! They’re fun, bang on-trend and they might even keep your pins warm as you head from party to party this Christmas.
