Forget Plain Tights – Your Hosiery Has Had a Fashionable Update This Season

Jazz up an outfit in an instant.

Last Updated on December 16, 2021

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.
