FW08: Fancy Tights

Ever since I saw these stockings on the Chanel FW08 runway, I knew I wanted them.
They are refreshing, fun and elegant. I especially love the black stripe at the back- it is super slimming!
Luckily for me, this trend finally made it to high street. Urban Outfitters have almost the same contrasting colored ones (left: and it's not true what they say on the website about it being online only. I just got mine from the store today!). They are also just simple enough that you can wear it with almost anything.

Urban Outfitters also offer a bit of variation with the bold black/gray stripes (right), which are still cool and slimming. But since this one is so much more striking than the other one, I'd be much more careful matching this one because these ARE the statement.
If you want something even subtler, I'd go with these stockings with a seam at the back. It is almost like regular stockings but with an interesting twist at the back that is both sexy and slimming (a very important attribute), what more can you want?
I'd always thought that lace was slutty, but HG turned me around and now I"m a convert (or maybe I'd just confused them with fishnets?). It adds just the right subtle touch of girliness to an outfit (and it is very popular amongst the models this season). This mini diamond printed tights (right) gives a similar textured effect in a less girly way. Just remember not to choose any print too densely populated or wide (like wide diamond prints or plaids!), because they'd just make your legs look uneccesarily wide.
And also, not fishnet footless stockings or v print red ones (above), please. They are just tacky tacky tacky. But otherwise, have fun with this trend. I know I will :)

What's so tacky about the red v-pattern tights? I think those would be super-cute with a denim skirt and calf-high boots.

I'm amused that so many people act like stockings with a backseam are something new. It used to be proper for women to wear backseamed stockings, as going without the seam was supposed to hint at nudity. They are definitely sexy, but the color of the actual stocking is more slimming than just having a backseam.

Has anyone tried wearing a stocking with a black stripe at the back?

I'm so pleased all of the high-street shops are bringing out cheaper versions of the more daring tight trends this season, i've personally always loved tights so this is a good time for me! I agree with you about the lace tights too, i always confused them with fishnets but now i have about five pairs of my ownxxx

I love the chanel ones in the first pic. If only we had a UO store here! I used to wear semi-sheer white back-seam tights when I used to do ballet :)
PS: Not that I'd wear red tights, but why are those tacky? They look ok to me..

I love the Urban Outfitters contrasting colour ones! Also the Chanel, but a bit out of my price range.. I'm considering googling the UO ones right now, and getting a pair.. would look really good with my Clash oversized tee!

Love your blog!

I've always loved tights and always will. I have practically every color in the rainbow, along with some lace (which, when used appropriately, looks gorgeous) and comfy knit tights.

I adore the Chanel tights in the first two photos, they are fabulous. And I want them.
