Whether in classic black or modern colours, tights have never gone out of style. From sheer sultry pairs to warm woolly pairs, tights are a versatile staple that can give your outfit some personality, or just some added insulation!

Extend your summer wardrobe with tights

Wear them with dresses, skirts and shorts, and tights are the perfect accessory to keep your summer wardrobe in style all year round. Not quite hot enough for your favourite summer dress? Wear it with a pair of black tights and some biker boots for an edgy outfit that will span all seasons. Date night but can't bear to bare the legs? Choose some patterned sheer tights and wear with a pencil skirt and some court shoes for an elegant look that won't leave you out in the cold. Love your holiday wardrobe but wish you could wear it at home? Team your summer shorts with coloured wool tights and thigh high boots for a fashion-forward winter look.

The personality of tights

Whether you're mad for monochrome or crazy for colour, tights can give your outfit a unique touch. Go for highbrow chic in a pair of black tights with black block heels and a little black dress, or stay radiant in the winter with coloured tights, a pastel coat and ankle strap sandals. Embrace the catwalk's love for pleats with a pleated skirt, but go for clever texture fusion and wear it with some patterned tights. Finish the look off with a loose sweatshirt and ankle boots to look every bit the trendsetter.
