This Super Affordable Item is Going to Transform Your Winter Wardrobe

Have you noticed them everywhere?

I’ve always had a thing for statement tights, so imagine my excitement to discover that printed, patterned and colourful tights are set to make a comeback this winter.

The look started emerging last year with Gucci’s monogrammed tights and Ganni’s leopard-print pairs, both of which every fashion girl seemed to be wearing.

Printed legwear returned at Fashion Week, with Prabal Gurung, Vivienne Westwood, Prada and Maisie Wilen amongst the designers championing the look.

It wasn’t long before they started appearing on my Instagram feed, despite it still being relatively warm outside. If people are wearing tights when they don’t need to, you know the trend must be about to explode.

Prabal Gurung’s polkadot tights had me feeling instantly inspired, so I’ve already started collecting my patterned hosiery ahead of the cold weather.

While avant basic, a new aesthetic that embraces colour and clashing patterns, has been trending, you don’t have to go all out if you don’t want to. Printed tights come in so many different iterations, from geometric black to multi-coloured checkerboard.

Here are my favourites available to buy now, and if you want a little help with how to style them, read our guide here.
