7 fun (and grown-up) ways to wear tights this season From embracing bold colours to taking them into the evening


Although tights were out of favour in fashion for some time (with most of us aiming to get through winter without putting a pair on), the last few seasons has seen the likes of Saint Laurent, Céline, Chanel, Tom Ford and Gucci (whose were crystal-embellished no less) jump back onto team tights. Still not convinced? Here, we round up 10 fun (and grown-up) ways to wear them for the season ahead.

Be bold
If the latest collection from Tom Fordis anything to go by, when it comes to tights: the bolder, the better. If you really want to embrace Ford's head-turning look, match the rest of your outfit to the statement print.

Brighten up your classics
If going head-to-toe print á la Tom Ford is too daunting for you, instead, inject just one bright colour into your ensemble. This pop of red instantly elevates her monochromatic look.

White is the new black
Although black is known as the go-to colour when it comes to tights, white can be just as chic – and far more original. Another bonus: they can make your coloured shoes really pop.

After dark
Alexander Wang's final fashion showproved that tights really shouldn't be left in your school uniform days. Paired with elegant patent black heels and a slinky dress, take them into the evening and get ready for your outfit to ooze attitude.

Make it quirky
Although tights have the potential for excellent evening wear, they can also be used to inject a little bit of fun into an ensemble, which Alexa Chung proves with her spotty offering.

Colour block
It looks as if Kendall Jenner has been channelling Gossip Girl's Blair Warldorf of late with her colour-block tights and school girl uniform. Her supermodel twist though? Sky-high heels and a fashionable faux-fur coat. We will be following suit.

Layer them up
An even bolder way to tap into the tights trend this season is to layer them up with socks and heels. Here, this Fendi print is perfectly complimented by the chunky ankle sock and buckled shoe.
