TIGHTS GO WHITE FOR A/W2016
Laura Yates, High Fashion & Lifestyle Writer
It’s surprising how a fabulous pair of tights can really add the ultimate style factor to your look and this past season has seen an array of hot coloured hosiery including vibrant purples, patterns, floral and of course the favourite go-to opaque black numbers.
However, the recent shows at New York Fashion Week have confirmed that for Autumn/Winter 2016, you need to banish the black opaque hosiery tights in favour of quite the opposite. Yes ladies, white tights are what our pins should be adorned in as elegantly demonstrated by the Rodarte, Thakoon, Max Azria, and Erin WassonxRVCA models.
Seen teamed with crisp white tones and winter nudes (a continuation from the spring trend), bright white legs with pale toned shoes and boots are going to be all the rage and whilst I admit that on tall, super slim models, this make for a wonderfully elegant and winter princess style chic ensemble, I’m not quite sure how it will translate into our everyday style from an aesthetic and practical point of view!
Still, it’s a super cute look and whilst white isn’t the most forgiving of colours, worn with a mid-length number and a good pair of nude heels to elongate the legs, it can certainly be adapted.
