How to… wear WOW Tights

Wondering how to wear statement tights without looking silly? Or bored of wearing trousers all the time now the weather has (finally) turned wintery? were featured in a handy how-to guide in the press this week, so we thought we’d share their top 5 ways to work statement tights…

1) Colour blocking
With the 60s revival still going strong, colour blocking is going to be around for a while longer yet, and what easier way than to buy a simple pair of coloured tights? A simple, cheap and cheerful addition to your wardrobe, they start from a teeny tiny £4.10, so you really can afford to match them to everything in your wardrobe!

2) Embellished
Spots are hot at the moment, but try a twist on the trend with the Charnos 75 Brigit

te Tights (the actual tights in the feature, supplied by which feature glittering Swarovski crystals up the back of the leg for a sparkling addition to a glamourous black dress.

3) Texture
Different textures can work really well as long as you don’t go OTT. Try leg lengthening ribbed tights with cotton skirts or silky shirts.

4) Stars
The stars trend last year was begun by designers like Christopher Kane, and planetary movement have dictated they’re set to last well in to 2010. Snap up a pair of the Henry Holland Superstar Tights, available with either classic black or spangly multi-coloured stars.

5) Elaborate Girly
Lace tights and girly designs like bows and floral motifs are the order of the day. Use them to glam up your party frock, or add a sweet edge to a tough biker look.

Grazia tells you how to get SJP's style…

Where Sarah Jessica Parker leads, the rest will follow. So expect everyone to be wearing statement hosiery in the new year, following SJP stepping out in bright aqua tights last week in New York. Even Grazia magazine’s high end loving fashion editors have given the look their stamp of approval, and suggested various (in their words) “snazzy, party-worthy, Christmas-dinner-talking-point tights” to try.

Colour Pop
Grazia recommends working colour pop tights in purple, blue and red – we also advise trying bottle greens, which are much easier to pull off than you’d ever think. Check out the entire selection of coloured tights, or to get SJPs look, try the Jonathan Aston 40D Tights in Hyacinth or Velvet Green.

Animal print tights seem to be back season after season, so


this is a safe bet to keep you looking current for ages, and will go with loads in your wardrobe. Or try cute heart print tights- so on trend this spring. We know most of your budgets won’t stretch to Grazia’s recommended Yves Saint Laurent version, but you can get your hands on a cute style for much cheaper, plus we’ve got lots of different styles so you can choose your favourite (or get them all to last you right through until Valentine’s day!)

Fairisle tights and Tartan tights designs are also the perfect way to work fashion tights when it’s simply too cold for patterned sheers. Try the Pretty Polly Fairisle Backseam Tights for a twist on the look, or the Pamela Mann Fairisle Tights for a more classic take on the trend.
