That’s right ladies, that time of the year has arrived and it’s time to pack away those muddy wellies as the festival season leaves us for the year, taking with it hazy memories of seeing your favourite band and attempting to construct (and re-build) that tent.
Naturally, we’ve taken the opportunity to round up our favourite hosiery looks, as we comb through the endless fabulous outfits and we’ve spotted quite a few celebrities debuting their impressive legwear collection too! From Reading and Leeds to Glasto, we’ve come up our top three looks, making sure that when festival season revisits next year, you’ll have that head start.
To begin with, we adored the way that Jameela Jamil embraced animal print at V Festival. By teaming her jungle themed opaques with quirky accesories and a simple LBD, the Radio One presenter and model showed us all that she had her finger on the fashion pulse and we can’t wait to try it out ourselves. For an exact match that will work on and off fields, try teaming the Jonathan Aston Wild Tights with an oversized clutch, stepping into this season’s ankle boot for an edgy touch. For those craving one more print to add to their wardrobe, why not treat legs to the luxurious Mystery Leggings from Trasparenze, packed full of a sassy snakeskin print.
Next on our wish list was original Sugababe Mutya’s tribute to all things lacy. Equal parts charming and chic, the style savvy singer made sure to readdress the girly vs grungy balance, teaming her black lace tights with an oversized baseball jersey and lace up boots. Just as dramatic and even more luxurious are the Wolford Victorienne Tights, which feature an elaborate floral design that runs throughout the open net fabric. However, if you’re after a softer and more subtle look that you can wear to the office, we suggest the Scroll Net Tights from Charnos. Decadent and dashing, the fancy scroll detail will never overwhelm outfits (perfect for those weary of pattern) and will look gorgeous when styled with a simple shift dress and quilted pumps.
And last but by no means least, Louise from London based reality show Made In Chelsea has shown us all that socks are still very much an essential for any happy camper, showing us that no wellington boot is complete without a cosy and chic pair! Opting for a classic, goes-with-everything black over knee pair, the pint sized socialiate collected fashion brownie points, customising hers with gold studs. If you’re a fan of that over knee style, then make sure to stock up on the Pamela Mann Over Knee Socks. Available in four fabulous shades for even more fun, these create a bold leg silhouette, delivering a snug fit and cosy feel. For a party appropriate alternative, then the Lurex Highball Overknee Socks from Pamela Mann are just the ticket, working to inject a little shimmer into that jersey dress or skater skirt.
So whether you’ve a penchant for lace or refuse to surrender your long socks, take solace in the fact that we have another twelve months to perfect that festival and field friendly look…!
