If you have been wondering what to wear on your legs when the mercury drops, the answer is simple: black tights. After seasons of bare leg chic, tights are in! Buy them from Wolford or Hue in opaque, satin and shear.


Wolford tights are pricy but feel fabulous and last forever. Hue looks good and is easy on the budget. When in doubt, go up a size for comfort. Both brands have lots of Lycra and won’t bag. If tights are too small, you will tug on them and run them. Wear satin or opaque for day and satin or sheer for evening, when you want coverage and warmth!


Flaunt your legs and your style

Fendi's knit tights make a statement and are cosy too!Here’s DolceDolce’s Amber Burns, with the lowdown on trendy legwear: 

As the winter cold sets in, I’m thrilled that tights have again secured a spot as a staple accessory.  No longer are tights simply used to extend the life of a fabulous cocktail dress or to appease conservative co-workers at the office. 
This season, designers have pushed tights to new levels by incorporating unexpected, yet classically chic, textures and prints. Legwear has come a long way since our mother’s nude hosiery.
Sweater knits covered legs at Fendi  this year.  Rich colours in eye-catching textures graced the runways, complementing impeccably tailored silhouettes.  Sweater knits work great in neutrals as well; a camel-coloured knit pairs perfectly with a chunky Mary Jane heel and a statement-coloured trench.
Bright hosiery is also a hot trend this season.  Remember to mix, not match, patterned shoes and hose.  Create colour schemes that demand attention.  Reference a color wheel to find complementary combinations and dare to be different.  A great leopard pump will pair whimsically with kelly green tights.
