I’ve always had a love hate relationship with tights. Yes, they keep you warm – but I’ve never been the most practical dresser.
Luckily it seems I don’t need to choose between style or comfort this season, as now black tights have had a much-welcomed update.
Instead of bog standard hosiery, fashion girls have been spotted wearing patterned black tights constantly lately.
One of this season’s biggest trends is logo-emblazoned everything, and the look has now made its way onto our legs.
Designers including Chanel, Fendi and Gucci have each dropped their own versions of logo-patterned tights, but if you’re too scared to splash out on designer tights only to find them ripped a week later, you’ll be glad to know the high street has plenty too.
Perhaps the easiest style of statement tights to wear, they can be worn in a multitude of ways.
If you like to keep things relatively simple, chic and tailored, they add a little something to a minimal outfit. But if you’re somewhat of a maximalist, they can be worn with other prints to create a perfect pattern clash.
I’ve always been more of the latter, with a penchant for mixing prints and bright colours. It’s been refreshing to see an array of new trends bursting onto the scene this season that reflect my taste.
However for many, I can understand how the drastic change from a minimalist aesthetic to the exact opposite can feel a little daunting.
So start with black patterned tights, and if you love them you can move onto colourful statement tights to brighten up the grey days this season.
Here are 17 pairs we love, from designers including Gucci, Fendi and Marine Serre, as well as more affordable options from Calzedonia, River Island and New Look.
