The Coloured Tights Style Guide As Seen On London Fashion Week

Coloured Tights: A Style Guide As Seen on London Fashion Guide

Here, at UK Tights, we are passionate about fashion. As you can imagine, we can’t help ourselves following every fashion week out there: New York, Milan, Paris, Madrid, Berlin… and, of course, London Fashion Week.

We always sponsor a few fashion designers featuring their styles in London Fashion Week. We couldn’t be prouder to do so! Tights were very relevant in the last edition of London Fashion Week, which set the trends to follow in Autumn Winter 2018-19, and, of course, UK Tights was part of the catwalks.

UK Tights sponsored Chalayan show with Black and Purple Gipsy 100 Denier Tights and Silver Jonathan Aston 40 Denier Tights, which happen to be two of our best-selling styles.  You can see a snap of these tights on the UK Tights’ Instagram.

UK Tights’ collaboration with LFW designer Edeline Lee

For Autumn Winter 2018-19, UK Tights and Edeline Lee joined forces to feature Oroblu All Colours 50 Denier Tights in all their models. Have you seen how good they look with the floral-patterned dress in the picture at the top of this post? Before we move to the style guide, we’d like to thank Edeline Lee and photographer Adam Slama for providing us with these fantastic pictures of the AW1819 presentation in London last month.

So, let’s start looking at what colours of AW18 you can style in Spring (yes, in Spring! who said you can only wear pastel tones and white in Spring?)

  • Military green tights: Wear your military green tights with other shades of green and brown to emulate the look in Edeline Lee‘s look of a “woman contemplating the dark and secret gardens within herself”. You have plenty of shades to choose from: Bottle green, forest green, seaweed green, chocolate, coffee, etc.

  • Bordeaux tights: One of the top colours of 2018 in hosiery is Bordeaux, but that’s something you had probably imagined yourself if you look at Oroblu fashion styles. In this sense, many of Oroblu’s most popular tights, hold ups and, even, socks, were manufactured for the first time in Bordeaux. Most of these styles are now sold out, but you have a few pairs left yet. Eg. The Adelle Tights and the Clara Tights. Why not take a look at Oroblu’s new colours for SS18 in the meantime? There’s a really cute coral tone you can style just like this Bordeaux.

  • Ivory tights: Do you love or hate ivory tights? With white and ivory tights, tights are that polarised. Either you love them or you just can’t stand the thought of wearing them. Good news if you are in the first group: Ivory tights match every colour but white! They’re ideal to wear with floral-patterned outfits and any complicated patterns you can think of!

  • Red tights: The stylists here go once more for one-tone outfits, which is one of the top trends in Spring Summer 2018, too. If you don’t dare to go all red, you can pair your red tights with red ankle boots, so on trend at the moment, or maybe swap your red opaque tights for another of the favourite leg styles of the season: the red fishnets!

What coloured tights style are you going to try the first?

    I myself am very passionate about fashion I try to stay on top of new colors and styles. Think will try the Bordeaux colored tights next love all colored tights no matter the color.

  • randy

    Not sure what color next is hard to choose one color usually I buy more than one color. That way I have a variety to choose from and if you seen my collection you would see all the varieties of colors and styles that I have as you know never have enough.

    Aaaaaarrggghh! White tights. Wear with caution. I well remember the Mary Quant white tights of the 60s. Take a good hard look in the mirror, and discard at even the slightest tree-trunk suspicion. But they DO look great if you can wear them. On a nostalgic note, I had some white lace stockings in about 1964, when I had not-tree-trunk legs. Crossing Oxford Circus my suspender belt broke, and my pride and joy white stockings and suspenders descended below the hem of my proudly new mini skirt (a modest just above knee mini). Collapse of would-be-cool 18 year old. Thank God for tights.

      White tights aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. However, you’d be surprised how many people buy them! We never seem to have enough stock of white sheer tights and stockings; they sell out quickly! As for the 40-50 denier white tights, they’re one of our most classic styles, yet people keep ordering them. We particularly love white tights paired with bright outfits, denim and, of course, black (to create a monochrome look).

    Are those models wearing their tights over their heels? That’s a great way to ruin a fun pair of tights. I suppose it is easier than trying yoga e perfectly matching heels for a runway show.

    • UK Tights

      Yes, they are! We wouldn’t recommend it, though. Imagine it on a rainy day! It’s only for the runway show purpose, but I guess you can wear this look with matching ankle boots or, for the Spring Summer season, with sandals!
