After my recent post where I told you all about how I ended up looking like I was coping a feel of my crotch in the middle of Cabot Circus, Alex from Charnos asked if she could send me some tights to prevent me getting arrested for public indecency.
Its not a brand I had worn before, so in the interests in the public and er…science (everything can be explained as being a science experiment, its ace), I said yes please thanks. I received three pairs and battled with my camera to try and take photos of them. Did you know its really quite difficult to take photos of your legs? Now you do.
The Sheer Stripe tights are a very thin denier – so thin, that I managed to rip them when putting them on. I’m too used to wearing nice thick tights that can withstand the tired struggle at half 6 in the morning. The stripe is actually more zig zaggy. As I look at the photo, I’m wondering if you could put a coloured pair of tights underneath a sheer patterned pair like this – anyone tried it?
The next pair were a chocolate coloured pair of Cable Opaque tights – I love the pattern on these, and they were so nice and thick. I don’t really wear brown very often, so I probably wont wear these as much as I’d like – can you dye tights?!
My favourite pair out of the three are the Betty style. The pattern is made from a strange material, which is almost sticky to touch? Still, this pair are subtle enough for work, but interesting enough to get lots of comments!
Charnos have some gorgeous patterned tights – which I like to make a plain outfit a bit more interesting. Would it be weird to ask Santa for some?

Great work Hayley! In answer to your questons – laying is good (works well with those sort of lacey floral black tights too) – looks awesome with a bright blue pair underneath. The cables are so snuggly aren’t they – time to invest in some thing to wear with them? -they look ace on you. Glad you love the Betty’s one of my faves too – plus I feel like they keep my wobbly thighs in place ;)
And as for asking Santa…I always do :) xx
Wow these are lovely. I ‘ve worn coloured tights underneath a pair of fishnets before and it can look good, you need to find a colour that looks right though! x
