When it comes to listing our top hosiery faux pas, see-through leggings always manage to find their way towards the top of the list. Not always known for her excellent fashion choices, this week it was Kim Kardashian who fell foul of the style no-no, wearing a particularly unforgiving pair of transparent leggings during a Paris workout. Sure, the glare of the camera flash undoubtedly made her leggings appear sheerer than they actually were, but you’d think if you were a member of the world-famous Kardashian clan, that this would enter your mind before facing the prying eyes of the press! Whether a PR stunt or not, her choice of outfit left very little to the imagination, and certainly doesn’t rank amongst her finest sartorial choices. To make sure you never commit such a heinous fashion crime, we’ve rounded up our collection of gorgeous leggings for every occasion.
Best for: Everyday wear
Anyone who’s worn leggings will know just how versatile they can be. Whether with dresses, tunics or longline tees, it pays to always have a quality pair to hand, and we’ve got just the thing with the Trasparenze Honeymoon Leggings. Made in a matte finish and available in three classic colours, they’re also completely opaque, so there’s no chance of ‘doing a Kim.’
Best for: Patterns & Prints
Especially for the fashionistas, printed leggings are a must-have for the spring/summer seasons. From florals to geometrics, they’re everywhere at the moment, but our favourite pair has to be the Oroblu Bouquet Leggings. We were taken by these as soon as we spotted them arrive a few weeks back, and it’s clear to see why with their elegant floral print and generous stretch.
Best for: High Shine
Hands down one of the biggest trends at the moment, no leggings feature would be complete without high shine. They may not exactly be purse-friendly, but we’re of the opinion that sometimes it’s worth splashing the cash for something extra special, and that’s exactly what you get with the Wolford Estella Leggings. With a gorgeous leather look finish and quilted seam on the knee, wowing your friends is a given!
Best for: Extra Benefits
Nowadays, leggings can do more than just look great, and it’s possible for a simple pair of leggings to trim your figure and tone your problem zones! Who’d have thought it? We couldn’t decide on a favourite for this section, so we compromised with a tie between two brilliant styles, the first of which are the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings. Brand new to MyTights, these vampy leggings will streamline your tummy, thighs and hips, all the while giving you a rock chick look with their high shine finish. Or for the appearance of classic denim, a pair of the Spanx Super Skinny Denim Leggings are a must. Appearing like denim jeans but with the stretch of a legging, your figure will appear perfectly contoured 24/7.
Best for: Colour
Completing our fabulous five are the Trasparenze Dorella Footless Leggings. Dark colours are all well and good, but when the sun’s out, we love to experiment with jazzy shades to brighten our look. With ten colours on offer, these 70 denier leggings offer 100% coverage are perfect for updating your spring look. Our favourites are the vibrant shades of Ottanio and Bordo!Read More
