We’ve been rooting for X Factor winners Little Mix right the way from the beginning, and so we were absolutely thrilled when the girlband stormed their way to victory on the show at the weekend. Fiesty, cool and endearingly normal, we instantly fell for their quirky style (not JUST their love of hosiery, we promise!).
The best thing about the band’s fashion choices were that they shunned the traditional “sexy” girlband choices of teeny tiny skirts and sky high heels, preferring trainers and high street apparel – choices accessible to us mere mortals. Or so we thought.
Enter Henry Holland, hotshot Brit designer and style icon, who made no secret of the fact that he was a huge Little Mix fan from the off. The girls had already been spotted in various Henry Holland designs (including the All Over Bones Tights, pictured right, and the Superstar Tights) on the show. But at the end of November, Jade was spotted wearing a very special pair of tights indeed (which you can see here), and wore them again for the X Factor final. The customised Henry Holland tights looked like his bestselling Alphabet Tights, but on closer inspection, the letters, which on the original design spelt out “HENRY” on one leg and “HOLLAND” on the other, they spelt out “LITTLE” and “MIX”.
Let us just say right now: we still love Little Mix. We would forgive them anything. We will accept their fancy new bespoke designer clothes. But we can’t deny it: we want customized Henry Holland tights so badly we could cry…
