Get Ready to Rock Colorful Tights: Your Fun Guide to Fashion!



Hey there! If you’ve been following my journey, you know I made the big move from Melbourne to Sydney last year. And let me tell you, figuring out how to dress here has been a bit of an adventure! Sydney’s weather is a whole different beast, and my old Melbourne rules just don’t cut it.

First off, Sydney’s humidity is no joke. I’ve ditched the jacket more times than I can count, and wool? Forget about it – I’m sweating in seconds. Winter here (at least so far) seems more like a chance to play dress-up than actually bundle up. But, oh boy, the rain is a different story!

Colorful Tights: The Trend You Can’t Ignore

This month, at Australian Fashion Week, I noticed a super fun trend – colorful tights! Yep, you heard that right. Brands like Viktoria & Woods, Liandra Swim, and P.E Nation were all about them. These tights weren’t just your boring black either; think bright reds, soft mauves, florals, greens, and of course, classic black.


Now, you might be thinking, “Colorful tights? Really?” Trust me, I had my doubts too. But then I chatted with some fashion pros, and they had some awesome tips on how to rock this look without looking like a fashion disaster.

Spice Up Your Outfit

“Hosiery can really add some fun and flair to your outfits,” says Karla Clarke, the stylist for Viktoria & Woods. Her advice? Go for colorful tights or ones with cool textures to mix things up.

Matching the color of your tights to your skirt or dress is a win. Imagine pale green tights with a matching skirt – so chic! Or, go bold with bright reds and pinks against neutral outfits. Both choices make a strong fashion statement, Clarke says.

Another cool trick is layering. The folks at Scanlan Theodore suggest wearing colorful tights under neutral skirts or dresses and pairing them with knee-high boots. This way, just a peek of the tights shows, adding a hint of mystery and allure.


Picking the Perfect Tights

Comfort is key, right? The team at Poepke, a cute boutique in Sydney, recommends getting tights that are long enough. No one wants to spend all day yanking up their tights! Check the box for the right size before buying.

The thickness of your tights, known as denier, also matters. Thicker, more opaque tights are great for playful looks, while thinner, sheer ones are perfect for a sophisticated evening vibe. Clarke loves classic, high-quality stockings like those from Wolford.

And hey, if you prefer natural materials, look for tights made with viscose-rayon, lyocell, wool, or cotton. These often come with elastane for a comfy stretch. For extra comfort, pick tights with a cotton-lined gusset.

The waistband is another important factor. If you like feeling snug around your tummy, go for a wide compression band or control top. But if you want more freedom, a narrow waistband might be better. And don’t forget to check for reinforced toes to avoid annoying holes.


Over-the-Knee Socks: A Fun Alternative

Not feeling tights? Over-the-knee socks are a fab option! The Poepke team loves them for adding a pop of color under a skirt with clogs or paired with pleated pants and lace-up shoes. Brands like Simone Rocha, Baserange, and Issey Miyake offer super cute options in florals, olive greens, and pastel pinks.

For a preppy vibe, style these socks with brogues, pleat-front shorts, and a shirt, or try a miniskirt and a knit vest. You can even wear them with heels or sandals for a playful twist.

Embrace the Fun

So, there you have it – colorful tights and over-the-knee socks are in, and they’re a great way to have some fun with your fashion. Don’t be afraid to experiment and make these trends your own. Fashion is all about expressing yourself, so why not go bold and bright?
