The “Hero Tights”

It’s official.  Well, more official than when I wrote “PRETTY POLLY + MYTIGHTS = THE BEST” on a post-it last week, anyway.  The Milk Maid’s culture and fashion blog has included these lovelies, supplied by MyTights, as one of their “trend transcenders”- products that will last season after season while the rest of your wardrobe falls by the way – just like the perennial LBD.

As well as billing them “The Hero Tights”, they also referred to these £6.25 tights as “worth investing in”.

Investment?  What investment?!  Let’s face it, at that price we could probably afford to buy ten pairs (in both black and the other colour on offer, denim blue) and still have enough to start saving for one of their other featured products (I’ve got my eye on the Louboutins, a snip at £375).

These champion tights are actually Pretty Polly Lace Tights, which feature a delicate swirling floral design on a fine mesh base – but despite the delicate motif, these tights will last and last because, thanks to the reinforced toe and boxer brief, they’re more durable than they look.  And they really do transcend the seasons.  Wear them now with the summer’s denim and floral dresses, pleated skirts and fringed accessories; and come September team with all your new season buys – houndstooth jackets, tweed skirts and tartan dresses.

So there we have it – the Hero Tights.  They might not be able to save your life, but they can save you from a wardrobe crisis any day.
