TEXTURED TIGHTS & TAILORED SHORTS

We are so thrilled to launch a series of guest pieces written by articulate fashion bloggers, hosiery enthusiast with whom we share values and approaches towards women and towards fashion in general.


Our first contributor is the lady behind the truly fabulous blog, Fake Fabulous, Samantha from Scotland, UK, whose favourite quote: "BETTER TO BE LOOKED OVER THAN OVERLOOKED"(MAE WEST) well represents her credo.

It's no secret that I am a big fan of coloured, and patterned, hosiery.
Tights are such an easy way to change the look of an outfit.
They can add colour, texture, fun and a luxurious touch!
Or, make your favourite clothes wearable through the changing seasons.

So, when the people at My Stockings sent me these beautiful tights, I was delighted to include them in my outfit.

Today I'm wearing my tailored shorts (See them HERE and HERE) and my cosy jumper (see it styled HERE ) with some chunky boots (see them HERE and HERE).

These boots seem have made their way into my daughters wardrobe, for some reason!
Hmmmm.... she must really like them.
I borrowed them back for today, to complete my simple and comfortable look.

What could be easier than popping on some luxurious legwear to make a cosy winter outfit?
These textured tights are soft on the skin, and comfortable to wear.
Adding an interesting textural element to this simple outfit.

I prefer to wear shorts in colder weather.
Hot weather makes me want to cover up my skin (I burn easily) and shorts in summer means thinking about how my legs look!

{See THIS POST about legs getting old... and what you can do about it.}

Shorts in winter are much easier to wear.
Less exposing.
Smarter.
Simple to style, and slightly unexpected.
No need to worry about pale, blotchy legs...just keep them fuzz free and pop on a pair of tights!
Simple and fun.


Do you wear coloured and/or textured hosiery in the colder months?
If yes, what do you like about wearing it?
If not, why not?

Please share your thoughts in the comments.
I love to hear from you!
