Whilst we may still be shivering into our onesies and hot water bottles, the turn of the New Year means that it’s time to start considering our spring/summer wardrobes. And in the world of hosiery that means one thing… sheer tights! Here at MyTights, we love the elegant look that sheers can offer, giving your pins a subtle look and some coverage when you’re not feeling brave enough to expose a bare leg! And we’re not alone, with the likes of Kate Middleton, Alexa Chung and Rihanna all being advocates of the movement. Well, if it’s good enough for them…
Last week, The Guardian even featured the trend on their fashion blog, calling on the expertise of none other than MyTights founder, Laura Godsal, who revealed that sales of sheers are up by 13% this winter already. She added that ‘Whereas sheers and semi-sheers in recent years have been unfashionable, now you walk down the street and see women of all ages wearing them, with black being the hot favourite.’ With this in mind, we thought it would be a great idea to compile a selection of our favourite sheer tights, so all our lovely customers can find a look that’s perfect for them!
The budget friendly – you simply can’t go wrong with the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights, amongst our bestsellers and coming with a glamorous shiny finish and choice of shades. Or opt for the Charnos Run Resist Sheer Tights if a matte look is more your thing…
A touch of luxury – with a chic 20 denier finish but robust 40 denier strength, the Wolford Neon 40 Tights are a real splash of quality for your hosiery drawer. If you’re after something extra special, look no further than the Falke Sensation Seamless 20 Tights, made without seams for a truly exquisite look and unrivalled comfort!
Match your skin tone perfectly – Available in 9 classic skin shades, the Falke Shelina Tights have an 8 denier appearance and slight sheen finish – a must-have for your hosiery capsule collection!
A helping hand – working to flatten your tummy, tame your thighs and lift your derriere, the Spanx In Power Line Super High Shaping Sheers come with an attached pair of classic sheer tights! Not bad, huh? Or for something a little more affordable, stock up on the Levante Class Control Tights – a real wardrobe staple! Want to read more about the rise in sheers?
