Fantasy tights are officially back! The days when we only saw black 100 deniers passing by aren’t officially gone. But being creative with legwear is once again allowed. The only thing you have to watch out for is not making it look too trashy. We know that trash has been a trend for a while now but some things are a bridge too far. If unknown men start spontaneously following you in the streets, something might have gone wrong.
Obviously you need to combine tights with a dress, shorts or a skirt. We’re not even going to point out the reason why… But don’t make your overall look to feminine. And play a bit with the male vs female look, this always works out. Flats, ankle boots, blazers, shearling coats and leather jackets are definitely a go. An oversized hoodie with ripped denim shorts might be a great combo too. There are loads of on point looks to be found online so you can’t use the lack of inspiration as an excuse.
Let’s have a look at the latest fancy legwear…
Fishnet tights are a classic. And we’ve seen quite a few of them passing by during fashion weeks. Of course Chiara Ferragni was one of the trend setters with her Calzedonia ones. We’re not even the biggest fan of her look but in a weird way she still rocks it. That girl just gets away with almost everything.
Anyway… Calzedonia, the Italian legwear brand, has some great items in its collection for FW16/17. Our personal favorite are the lucky star tights, also spotted on Chiara Ferragni (of course).
Details, details, details
Another epic legwear brand that’s known for its detailed tights is Wolford. If you’re looking for something special, this is the brand you need to watch out for. This season we especially like their “Live your dream” tights. If you’re thinking about rocking the upcoming holidays, we suggest you head to the nearest Wolford store.
