Best: Luxe Tights

WolfordVelvetDeLuxeThe fashion team at the Telegraph newspaper have pulled together their six point guide to the new season, and they got one thing right.? ?Don?t be Tights?, was the prominent first point on their seasonal guide.? And whilst we?re all for sartorial savings when we can pick them up, for some classic staples, it?s worth investing.? Case in point: the humble opaque tights.

Telegraph Stylist Sophie Warburton aired her grievances with legwear budget buys, complaining that ?cheap tights bobble after a few washes?.? Well, we know that actually some of our best value opaques are made with longevity in mind, but we get her point ? when it comes to quality in hosieryland, you do generally get what you pay for.? The yarns used to make tights from brands like Wolford, for example, are generally super smooth and tough enough to withstand the test of time.? Try the Velvet de Luxe 66 Tights, which are easy on the eye and soft on the skin, and will last season after season.

Another common gripe about budget opaques is the perpetual hosiery hazard: ladders.? This is where investing in some run resist technology can really pay off.? We just love the Andrea Bucci LYCRA?FUSION? fibre Opaque Ladder Resist Tights, which have a gorgeously expensive looking matte finish and innovative ladder resist technology so you can banish the fear of unsightly snags for good.

According to Sophie, cheaper options are also prone to giving you ?saggy knees and Nora Batty ankles?.? Not so with quality craftsmanship from brands like Falke, the German hosiery expert whose attention to detail is second to none.? The majority of their styles feature reduced stitching at the knees and ankles, which gives a superior fit on the leg and eliminates saggy tights trauma.? Another tip is to opt for styles that come with a gusset ? this will improve the overall fit as the tights are actually shaped around your figure.? And avoid one size styles like the plague ? for the perfect fit check the size guide on the style to tailor to your measurements.? The solution to these worries?? The Falke Seidenglatt 70 Tights, which have a luxe shiny finish, breathable cotton gusset and come in a myriad of colours and sizes so you can get a perfect fit AND match them to everything in your wardrobe!

Pay a bit extra and you also get the cream of the crop when it comes to hi-tech hosiery.?? The Pretty Polly Fleecy Tights have a sumptuous fleece lining that has to be felt to be believed (trust me, the entire MyTights office is madly in love with these).? Or why not ditch the dry body brushing – the bathroom is far too cold this time of year anyway – and instead slip on a pair of the cellulite busting (yes, really) Emana Tights from Charnos?

Still hankering after opaques on a budget?? We don?t discriminate against a frugal fashionista.? Check out our full range of opaque tights, starting from a teeny tiny, barely-dent-your-bank-balance ?2.? Hell, you can always protect them with a hosiery bag.

Ankle Socks are IN: It's official…

Telegraph Columnist and all-round stylish lady Lisa Armstrong has given her stamp of approval to the ankle socks trend – sort of. After an initial resistance against the trend (and we can see why – ankle socks are TRICKY to pull off) she found herself weakening, and we for one are glad.

Ankle socks are a firm favourite of designers and the fashion elite alike. Maybe it’s the rose tinted fashion glasses harking back to our carefree school days, maybe we saw the Mulberry models in them and wanted to get the catwalk look, or perhaps we British are simply suckers for a trend that keeps our tootsies warm. Whatever the reason, ankle socks are sticking around for another summer, so if you haven’t yet dipped a toe into the trend it’s time to have a go.

According to Lisa, the firm favourite of the fash pack is the Falke Ankle Socks in Grey which seemed to become a front row staple. Made from mercerised cotton, these socks are “a superior genus of ankle sock”, says Lisa. They’re certainly high quality and the mercerised cotton means that they are soft and comfortable to wear (unlike the hideously high heels you’re supposed to team them with, of course). Falke make some of the highest quality hosiery and socks around, so in many ways, it’s easy to see why this luxury, wear-with-anything style has become the ankle sock du jour.

For a summery look that’s straight off of the catwalk, you can’t go wrong with coloured socks. From ice cream pastel pinks to sunshine yellows they will perk up any outfit – we think they look great with canvas pum

ps or your favourite wedges and sundresses. Finish with a wide brimmed straw hat and you’ve got a retro summer look that will sway even the most hardened anti-ankle sock fashionista. The Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks are perfect for

this – they come in 13 gorgeous colours and, at only £3.75, you can get one to match every outfit!

Alternatively bring the look into the evening with a statement anklet. Try black lace with stiletto heels, or for a very fashion-forward look as seen on the Henry Holland SS12 catwalk you could try fishnet anklets. Rihanna has been spotted in a pair very similar to Henry Holland’s version, which she teamed with pointy courts and a satin playsuit. We also adore the Pamela Mann Sheer Heart Ankle Socks which have an opaque heart pattern and the sweetest scalloped top, and have been worn by Fearne Cotton.

But Lisa Armstrong’s choice, Falke Socks, are the way to go if you’re looking for luxury, quality and longevity – they have such a wide range including merino wool styles for cooler weather or cotton for when it gets warmer, and they also do a popular range of Men’s socks.

Maybe you’re still not quite convinced, and that’s ok. Falke tights are the next best thing – the luxury brand will never go out of style and their tights are second to none in the style stakes. But we guarantee next time you get caught out in the rain in your flip flops, you’ll start to come around to the idea…
