It’s all too easy to get super serious when dressing in winter. Black, brown, grey, bulky, boring, bleh. One way of counteracting this propensity to want to dress as dully as possible, is with the addition of a bright/patterned/humorous pair of tights. Whether they’re colourful, spotted, embroidered or textured, it’s a surefire way to liven up your outfit – there’s nothing quite a bolt of red or glimpse of subtle animal print underneath a sombre suit or neutral mac. Be brave and have some fun with your hosiery!
