- Tight Fever...

Tights: the garment that makes wearing dresses and skirts during the colder months bearable. With so many different colours, thicknesses and patterns around these days, there's no reason not to branch out from your usual black opaque pair. UK Tights are an online hosiery store with a huge selection to offer at affordable prices. Below are my top three picks - all of which show that patterned tights don't always make you look like you've just stepped foot out of a brothel (I hope, anyway).

1. Mock Over The Knee With Double Stripe, £6.99*
This pair of tights are only a slight alteration, but the over the knee sock design & double band give a lovely effect. They're 40 denier and far from feeling flimsy. I think these are perfect for people wanting to experiment a bit more, but are unsure of their comfort zone.

2. Sheer Dot, £5.99*
Polka dots have got to be a favourite pattern of mine and these all-over patterned tights are a great way to add an element of fun to an outfit. Again, they're something a bit different without being overly revealing. UK Tights also sell a pair with larger dots here.

3. Sheer Ankle Socks, £4.99* (two pairs)
These sheer ankle socks would look great with so many shoes, from heeled sandals to ankle boots. Here, I've chosen to style them with cut-out boots as I love the effect this gives. They add something different to an outfit and I love that you get two pairs in a pack!

What do you think of my top 3 picks? Don't forget to check out the wide range UK Tights have available!

  1. I love those over the knee ones! They look way more comfortable than over the knee socks and I'm sure they're probably warmer too!

  2. Is it wrong that I am insanely jealous of your legs? Haha. Love the boots and ankle tights combo, quirky yet wearable.

  10. Wow I love the first pair of tights so much, and although tights do help in making wearing skirts and dresses easier in the winter, sometimes it gets too cold here in Berlin even with tights :(
