Here at MyTights, we love nothing more than saving a bit of cash when it comes to fashion. Always keen to hear of new ways to update our look without spending so much that we’re forced to live off bread and water until payday comes around, we were thrilled when we came across these top tips from influential fashion blogger Lily Melrose. Shared with the readers of the Daily Mail, the talented blogger revealed her 15 favourite style hacks for making the best of what you have and making your 2014 pieces suitable for 2015.
Amongst a number of gems, one such idea left us feeling particularly inspired. Recognising the hot trend for ripped jeans, Lily suggested cutting a rip in your trusty jeans just above the knee cap for a distressed and laid back look. Not content with leaving it there however, for extra style points, the blogger recommended layering a pair of funky patterned tights underneath! We like her thinking. In fact, we’re so taken with the idea, we’ve been busily compiling a list of potential tights to perfect the look before we get home and reach for the fabric scissors. Want to get in on the action? Take a look at our favourite patterns for nailing this trend…
If it’s a vintage boho-inspired look you’re after, it simply has to be florals. We imagine the trend looking best in bright colours, so with this in mind we recommend trying out the Oroblu Elaine Tights in Avio, a dusty blue/purple shade. You might have noticed that one of the big trends for this season is spots, so why not try out wearing dots beneath your jeans? Our top pick are the Pamela Mann Sheer Dotty Tights, or the more adventurous amongst you might like to try out the wacky larger dots of the Wolford Leonie Tights. For a particularly novel take on the trend, how about opting for the Pamela Mann Sheer Faces Tights, with their smiley (and not so smiley!) faces on the knees?
You don’t have to stick to just patterns either. A pair of coloured tights will look equally as funky, so how about trying one of the brighter shades in the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights? The velvet green and violet would be perfect!
