October – May every year are my tights wearing months, it’s too cold to expose my pins to the world and eh…I just like tights.
After extensive research wearing so many pairs over the years my conclusion on thrifty tights has led to this wonderful theory – you can get away with buying some cheap tights but others require investment, you can’t tell which is which until you’ve worn them for a day. BLOWN AWAY, RIGHT?
1. Festive style £8.74 2. Ribbed tights £8 3. Intricate design tights £5 4. Animal print £8
5. Argyle tights £9.50 6. Chevron ridge tights £6 7. Patterned tights £3.99 8. Striped tights £3.95
Above are my picks and actually I have in my own collection numbers 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7 and think they’re incredible value. They all wash up well and keep their shape which to me is brill. I’ve picked out bargain tights from a range of sizes and most cover 8-22 with some covering smaller and larger.
Some of these might seem a bit pricey but for instance I’ve had the Argyle patterned tights for over 3 years and they’re still going strong, so sometimes it’s worth the investment in the long run especially if you’re never out of dresses and skirts.
