Storms are afoot and I am very tempted to hibernate under the duvet and read one of the many books that I received for Christmas. Thankfully, these woolen tights make this time of year much more manageable. We have such a wide range of delectable and cosy hosiery that it can be difficult to know where to begin, but thankfully you have narrowed it down with your reviews left on Feefo, our independent review service. Here are my recommendations, and what you had to say about them.
These classic wool tights will go with everything you own – so no more waking up to find there’s a blizzard outside and you have nothing to wear.
Levante Plain Wool Tights – “Warm and cozy in sub zero Celsius weather.”
If you reckon that the weather is just too frightful to face while wearing your favourite skirt, then think again. Levante Plain Wool Tights not only look divine in their subtle shades but they also keep your legs wonderfully warm. These sumptuous tights also boast a reinforced toe making them winter walk proof.
Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights – “These tights were exactly what I wanted and I am delighted. They are well constructed which means that they are comfortable to wear. They are also durable and following the washing instructions means that in terms of depreciation, they will eventually pay for themselves!”
These woolen wonders feel luxuriously soft thanks to a special finishing treatment. Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights are pitch-perfect any time of day, with wool on the outside to protect you from the elements and cotton weaved inside to keep you comfortable. Equally, thanks to the hand-fit toe technique, there is no visible seam at the toe for increased comfort. These elegant opaques are available in six different chic shades. Reassuringly thick and soft, these wool tights are designed to last.
However, coloured tights provide a superb solution for adding a bit of welcome colour to those wardrobe staples.
Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights – “I get these tights all the time. The quality is excellent, they are warm (I live in Alaska and wear dresses to work) and the price is affordable.”
For impeccable style in a myriad of colours, I would suggest Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights. From the violet version in Prugna, to the pine green shade Bosco, there is an ideal option for everyone. I personally adore the rich raspberry tones of Rubino – perfect for warming up a winter outfit, such as a grey chevron knitted shift dress.
The fashion tights below prove that it is very possible to keep warm and look fabulous.
Jonathan Aston Alaska Tights – “These are superb. Warm, yet flattering.”
I love tights that work and play hard, like the Jonathan Aston Alaska Tights which ensure that you look stylish and feel snug. Team these showstoppers with an aubergine skirt and cream turtleneck for a subtle yet on-trend look. This fashion hosiery is available in black and navy – perfect for a multitude of ensembles.
Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Tights – “Very warm and snug! Excellent quality!”
When I fancy a slightly different look that is still warm enough to keep my toes toasty then I tend to plump for Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Tights. The fine rib design is exceedingly flattering and adds an unexpected touch to my outfits. Whether you are 4’9” or 6’1”, slim or curvaceous, with 4 different sizes there is a perfect fit for everyone.
Levante Wool Rib Tights – “These tights are soft, warm, and incredibly comfortable. The waistband stays up but doesn’t bind, and the toes are reinforced but don’t irritate.”
The Levante Wool Rib Tights are available in elegant coffee shades. Armed with a generous 100 denier, these opaques give my legs an even coverage. The flat lying waistband and barely there seams make these tights a joy to wear. Personally, I find that the Mocca shade goes perfectly with little tan leather boots, an aubergine pleated skirt and a chocolate cashmere jumper.
For another subtle twist on a classic staple, I also adore Falke Soft Merino Wool Ribbed Tights. The design elongates your legs, giving self-assurance even in the coldest of weathers. Durability is always a key factor when selecting tights and these toasty soft tights boast a superior thickness. Again, these tights benefit from the hand-fit toe technique providing a superior fit. The wide range of different shades available means that you do not have to sacrifice warmth in order to achieve your required look. Falke Soft Merino Wool Ribbed Tights – “Wonderful quality as always. Warm, cosy and great colours.”
Now for even more luxurious tights, these pairs will keep you feeling sumptuously snug no matter the weather.
Aristoc Cashmere Blend 100 Denier Tights – “I have MS so getting tights on can be a huge struggle. These are soft, stretchy and comfortable and slide on easily.”
The addition of a touch of cashmere gives these opulent opaques a luxurious soft feel and their 3D construction gives 100% even coverage as well as warmth. Aristoc Cashmere Blend 100 Denier Tights also have a soft 4cm waistband, so these tights provide pure comfort from toe to tip. Match these tights with a long light pink coat for a delightfully fashionable but equally functional look.
Falke Sensual Touch Silk Cashmere Blend Tights – “Lovely quality, soft with a hint of shine. Quite generous sizing and extremely comfortable to wear.”
Woolly tights do not come more deluxe than this! Woven from a generous high-quality mixture of cotton, cashmere and silk, Falke Sensual Touch Silk Cashmere Blend Tights is haute hosiery that again provides you with comfort and style. The three materials work perfectly together, the silk makes these tights beautifully smooth, the cashmere keeps you sumptuously warm, while the cotton content also provides an additional comfort factor. Falke weaves their tights in such a way that they always provide a snug and flattering fit. My favourite shade is navy, however there are 3 others from which you can choose.
We hope that these splendid woolen tights will turn your winter from freezing to wonderful.
Until next time…
Christmas for me really is the most wonderful time of the year. I adore smelling the pine trees, listening to those sweet carollers, watching classic films, and of course unwrapping a new pair of luxurious tights! This magical season provides us with a multitude of options and opportunities to show off our legs and navigate the packed high street in style.
If you are attending a Christmas Eve event then these Starburst tights from Jonathan Aston are sure to put a spring in your step. Made with care from a multicoloured glitter yarn, your legs are bound to attract admiring glances while you dance away to Wham and Wizard.
If you are craving a vintage look with a fun twist then why not plump for these Starstudded tights again from Jonathan Aston? These 60 denier sheers gleam as much as they sparkle. Evoking 50’s glamour with a sexy backseam made from crystals, you’ll have plenty of admirers ushering you towards the mistletoe.
Are you craving a pair of glamorous stockings without the hassle? There is no need to sacrifice any of your ‘getting ready’ time with these Yacht tights from Trasparenze. Their shimmering floral garter is just divine, achieving a seductive yet refined look. Pretty shimmering polka dots created from metallic thread are both fun and elegant. Team these twinkly tights with a black lace dress for a sophisticated look. These tights would go perfectly with a festive ensemble, the sparkly polka dots doubling for falling snow.
Your tree is looking marvellous, the living room is so beautifully ornate it puts Kirstie Allsopp to shame, and now the only thing left is to decorate your legs! If you are a big fan of all things festive then these Celeste Stein Christmas Glittery Ornament tights are for you. Celeste Stein have created a beautiful design crammed with Christmas ornaments woven from a high quality metallic thread. I’m wearing these jolly tights with my bright red Boden shift dress.
However, if you would rather the baubles remained on the tree, you can still get into the Christmas spirit with a pair of deep crimson tights. Pamela Mann’s 50 Denier tights are available in a vast range of colours, including our favourite vibrant scarlet shade – ideal for this merry season. Not only will these opaques look fantastic, they will also give an even coverage thanks to the super smart 3D elastane fibre. I advise you to match this perky hosiery with a mid-length black leather pleated skirt, a crisp white shirt and pearls – 3 key trends for Yuletide.
It’s raining outside, the temperatures are plummeting, and therefore what could be better than relaxing in a pair of comfy, cosy woollen socks? Our Pantherella Tabitha anklet socks are so luxurious, and they are made from such sumptuous cashmere, that even your most Scrooge-like friends will be impressed.
At MyTights, all we want for Christmas is a pair of sublime Transparenze Dora Wool Over Knee Socks. Made with a generous amount of mixed wool and elastic, these socks will keep your toes toasty – but won’t slip down as you sip on your Buck’s Fizz. It’s just a shame that for many people this year these stunning socks will be hidden under a festive onesie. Match these with a tartan skirt and a white woolen jumper for Highland chic.
And last but not least… if the children haven’t quite been pampered enough this year, then do be sure to look at our Falke Kid’s catspad socks. Fitted with anti-slip material, the little ones can run around with their new toys safely – phew!
Have yourselves a merry little Christmas ladies!
Until next time…
We’ve always known that Little Mix were great fans of the Statement Tight (Henry Holland did create their own personalised Alphabet Tights for them, after all), plus last month the girls rocked the FAST at Jonathan Aston Scramble Bodies on Daybreak. So we weren’t surprised to spot Perrie Edwards in the extremely pretty Jonathan Aston Fantasy Tights, which she teamed with a little denim playsuit and chunky winter coat.
We’d been all geared up to save these tights for our party frocks, but we love the idea of dressing these tights down like Perrie! In fact, the entire Jonathan Aston A/W collection is full of super luxe designs that we’ll now – thanks to Perrie – be teaming with casual basics. Here’s how you can rock the Aston-ista look without dressing up to the nines…
It has just come to our attention that Pixie paid a visit to her old school, the Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts, wearing an amazing pair of tights. How we missed such an amazing look we have no idea… but the good news is you can get the exact same look with the super cool Jonathan Aston Wild Tights.
You can dress these tights (which are an absolute bargain at just £12, by the way) up with heels a
nd a mini dress but we just LOVE the way Pixie has styled hers with flat lace ups and a matching leopard print shirt for a casual daytime look. Teal is leopard print’s best friend -we don’t know why, they just look amazing together- so by adding a splash of colour she really brightens up what could otherwise be an outfit verging on boring.
To match Pixie, get the tights in Black (sheer black with an opaque black leopard print), but if you really want the design to stand out go for contrasting nude with black pattern.
If these aren’t quite what you were after, take a look at the entire collection of animal print tights to find your perfect partner!
