carole middleton patterned tights

So, We Lesser Mortals know young teenagers can get away with outrageous tights, when worn with a pair of Doc Martins and a mini skirt, but can WE get away with them? Does Carol Middleton cut the mustard? I actually think she carries them off well, but patterned tights are not for the faint hearted. They work really well when you have to wear sombre clothes for work, like lawyers, bankers etc. I think they add a bit of anti-establishment!! But if you are a bit more cautious, stick to black outfits. Another great way to wear different tights, are seamed or modern fishnets ( they are not quite as open weave as traditional ones). And with retro clothes being so on-trend, you can imagine you are Sophia Loren……!

And finally coloured tights are available in just about every colour of opaque tights imaginable. You can be adventurous and chose contrast colours to go with your outfits (a la 60’s), or match them to what you are wearing. Coloured opaques are a bit less scary if you wear with knee boots, as only a hint of colour shows at your knees.
