I have some strange fashion rules that I have made up in my head that I can’t bring myself to break.
One of them is wearing (or, more specifically, not wearing) opaque tights before November. It’s just a thing.
But now we’re firmly in November and the tights can come out. Hurrah! It also opens up lots of wardrobe possibilities that are closed during the cooler days of October, like skirts and boots (I tend to get in a jeans rut during the change of seasons). And some that are only possible in autumn winter, like mini dresses that would be on the verge of explicit without tights to hide ones modesty! And shorts. I’m a big fan of shorts and tights in winter.
Today I have gone for a black and cream spotty jersey dress from F&F (2 years ago), with my trusty ASOS stompy boots (these were such a good buy, I’ve worn them loads already).
My legs feel cosy and protected, it’s nice!
My favourite opaques are from Primark; they’re good quality, wash well and come in a variety of deniers up to 150 (I think). I need to stock up as I do at the beginning of each tight wearing season. Even though I’m only 5’6″ I always buy tall, because there’s nothing worse than a saggy crotch that you have to keep hoisting up!
Here’s some of the outfits I’ll be wearing now that the tights are back in town.
