Entrepreneur, yummy mummy and self confessed Queen of Cool, there are endless reasons why Kate Moss will forever remain our favourite model. Ever since the 5’7 beauty emerged on the scene in the late 90s, the British public (well, a large amount of them anyway), have flocked to replicate her chic & cutting edge ensembles.
Just shy of 40, the mum of one showed us that she’s still got it during fashion week, debuting an impressive array of outfits. But when it came to after hour events, Moss flaunted a rather classic style of hosiery – her trusty black opaques.
No doubt her endless legs helped contribute to the show stopping looks but thanks to a little help from her choice of leg wear, Kate Moss grabbed headlines on more than one occasion. From her fancy dress appearance at the anOther magazine party (and no, there wasn’t an ill flattering costume in sight) to a Longchamps launch party, the supermodel relied on her black opaques to deliver a bold leg silhouette and elegant coverage. And here at MyTights HQ, we want to join in.
Luxurious and lovely, the Wolford Neon 40 Tights are fast becoming an office favourite, delivering a super soft feel and glossy finish. Leaving legs feeling pampered and looking polished, these are ideal for both work & play, including any fancy dress parties…
For a purse friendly alternative that still feels just as gorgeous, treat legs to the 80D Silk Finish Tights from Pretty Polly. Having recently revamped their opaques range, the British superbrand have made sure that regardless of budget or occasion, you’ll still be able to discover your perfect pair. Just the pair for those wanting a great quality pair of tights that they can wear every day, the 80 denier opaques have a gorgeously smooth finish, along with a silky sheen that Moss herself appears to prefer.
And for those always on the go, take solace in the fact that some rather clever designers have managed to work ladder resistant technology into a pair of fabulous 80 denier opaques. From Andrea Bucci, the Lycra Fusion fibre Opaque tights come prepared to deal with hectic schedules and clumsiness. By using bi-component technology, the outer layers of the fibre are allowed to fuse together, leaving the fabric super strong. In turn, you can be sure that a snag will never transform into anything more. Phew!!
So now we have our perfect pair of black opaques, we’re just waiting on those party invites to come through. Kate, we hope you’re reading!
