Tights? Yes please

When I was asked to review a spring-perfect product from Tights Please for the new season, it took me about two minutes to choose my ultimate hosiery…

I love a bright, powerful pair of tights because you can build your whole outfit around them. You already know that I’m obsessed with Pretty in Pink and the Pamela Mann “Promise” printed footless tights I chose from Tights Please really reminded me of a crazy pair of pantyhose Molly Ringwald’s character wears in the 80s classic.

Yet another Molly Ringwald impression

In keeping with the 80s vibe, and to let the tights remain the focal point of the outfit, I styled them with a 1980s dusty pink vintage dress that I absolutely adore. A very plain piece, only the beaded shoulders make a statement – and the gorgeous colour, natch.

The look is finished with nude heels and Lulu Guinness pink sunnies: a super spring look that works for day or night, and although the tights look aces with a jazzy vintage look like this, they also do lots of work with a grey jersey dress and pink Converse.
