Tights have always been used to complement ladies’ outfits.
Now they are no more an accessory, they are a solo fashion trend. And you put them on to brighten up your looks and make yourself more noticeable rather than just to match your dress.
There are classical styles that are always popular. For example, herring-bone pattern, check, stripe, floral and geometrical décor.
Evening pantyhose have a metallic gloss, ornamented with spangles or patterns. Tights for everyday use have to be elegant and monotone.
And, of course, black tights, that are fashionable all year round. Just scroll through winter collections by Anna Sui, Oscar De La Renta, Chanel or Emma Cook and you will certainly see black tights with slight glossy effect.

Red tints. Colour trends of this season are red tints, rich red-brown colour or raspberry pink hue. They are widely represented in Bottega Veneta and Caroline Charles’s colletions.
Chocolate brown is popular in Ben de Lisi, Biba, D&G, Celine and Paul Costelloe’s shows. Celine, DKNY and Dolce&Gabanna prove the constant fashion for grey colour, now it looks more silver than grey.

Fishnet (Mesh) tights. Those ladies who prefer mesh tights can be happy as they are again in fashion. Lacy mesh tights are included into Rodarte, Baby Phat, D Squared, Betsey Johnson and Emma Cook’s collections. The modern version of mesh tights are distinguished by some elements of Gothic style.
