The winter tights you'll love to wear

tights

Ah, tights. Whether you’re a lover of bare legs or can’t wait to get your hosiery back out with your winter clothes, sometimes the cold British weather means you just can’t avoid them.

We love winter dressing – cosy chunky knits, midi dresses and slouchy knee boots – all in a gorgeous muted colour palette. But if anything is going to ruin your look (and your day) it’s a pair of ill fitting tights.

Thankfully for you, we’ve rounded up the very best on the market – whether you’re after a natural nude, a high waisted pair or even worried about the effect our tights are having on the environment.

Loved by the royals, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, recently revealed the secret behind her perfectly placed tights, whilst Meghan Markle has been spotted in a pair of glossy nudes on her return from her tour of Australia and New Zealand.

With these leg-hugging beauties, there’s not a baggy knee in sight – prepare to make these your new winter wardrobe essential…
