How cold is winter being at your place? Do you get so much snow? Many of our customers contact us around these days asking for advice about the best winter tights, stockings and hold ups. Nobody likes suffering from cold feet and toes, so we thought it was about the time that we talk about the best tights to cope with cold weather. If you live in a very cold place or you’re going away on a ski trip, this is a post you wouldn’t want to miss.

Should I wear thermal tights?

ITEM m6 Cosy Winter Tights Black
ITEM m6 has a complete range of Winter tights!

You can certainly tell Germany, the ITEM m6 comes from, has cold winters! We can’t recommend enough ITEM m6’s range of cosy tights. You have to think of them as an investment, as they’re worth every penny spent on them. But, what’s the best style? The ‘Cotton Feel’ Tights? The ‘Beauty’ Tights? For us, the ITEM m6 Cosy Winter Tights in the picture above are the most complete of its styles. With micro-circulation and an innovative technology, these 100 denier tights work as an insulating layer, keeping your legs protected from extreme weather.

Aren’t Wool tights a better option?

We can’t tell if wool tights are the best option for winter, but they undoubtedly are one of the best options out there. As we explained earlier, these days there are new materials helping your body keep its natural heat. However, many customers have told us they prefer natural fibres, this is cotton and wool.

As microfibre tights often contain elastane, they expand and adjust to the leg shape better than cotton and wool tights. However, some people have very sensitive skin and prefer natural materials to polyester or polyamide. So, what should you go for?

– Wool tights:

Oroblu Wool Ribbed TightsOroblu Natural Fibres is one of the best ranges of cotton and wool tights and socks in the market. We couldn’t write a post about winter tights without naming this range! The Oroblu Nikki Wool Tights in the picture above is one of the best wool tights out there. We absolutely love the ribbed effect in these tights. Very classic and, still, really sophisticated. They are 75% Wool, which makes them less expensive than other wool tights, too.

After all, fine wool tights with cashmere or alpaca wool can cost five times more. When you buy wool tights, the percentage of the wool and the quality of it make a huge difference: you get what you pay.

– Cotton tights:

Trasparenze Wilma Cotton Tights

Do you struggle to wear wool clothes, but still love the feel of natural fibres over your skin? Why don’t you try cotton tights? They are slightly less warm than wool tights, we have to say. However, cotton tights are softer than wool and less expensive, too. This is good news for those of you who don’t want to spend so much money.

Trasparenze has a really good collection of cotton tights. If we had to choose a single product, we’d go for the Trasparenze Wilma Cotton Tights in the picture above, which offer a great quality for the price.

You don’t have to give up wearing coloured tights in winter:

Trasparenze Sophie 70 Denier Coloured Opaque Tights

Absolutely no. You don’t have to stop wearing coloured tights only because it’s chilly out there. Quite the opposite, actually. A good pair of coloured opaque tights can brighten up any boring outfit. By wearing different colours of tights, you’re expanding your winter wardrobe. ‘Sophie‘, our best-selling coloured opaque tights by Trasparenze, are 70 denier, but such high quality you could think they’re 100 denier. If you have never tried them, you should definitely give them a go.

Now that you know what are the best winter tights, it’s time to think of the styles in your hosiery drawer. Is there any style missing that you should be including?

Four Hosiery Innovations You Can’t Miss This Season
09/09/2016 by UK TIGHTS
We can’t deny how amazed with are with the new hosiery trends for Autumn Winter 2016, as you must have noticed after our most recent posts about fashion trends and hosiery collections. However, there’s something else you need to know about the new AW16 collections: its technological advances!

Do you remember our post about the under-toe seams and other hosiery innovations? Well, there’s more you need to know. These are the four hosiery innovations you can’t miss this season.

A pair of tights without a waistband?

Had you ever imagine you could own a pair of sheer tights without a waistband? Cecilia de Rafael has made it possible! The new Cecilia de Rafael Eterno 15 Tights are more than a regular pair of glossy sheer tights. They are an extremely comfortable pair of glossy tights! More features? Sandal toe, ladder resist and cotton gusset. Who can resist to great hosiery innovations like these!

Wolford Comfort Cut 40 Tights: The Ultimate Comfort

Talking about hosiery innovations, this is one of the latest innovations in the fashion world: A customisable waistband!

The waist size of the Wolford Comfort Cut tights is decided by the wearer, who can adjust it by making up to four cuts in the waistband.
What are the benefits of customisable waistbands in hosiery? Many! Tall people often have to wear X Large sizes to fit their long legs. What if you are tall but slender? In this case, you may find the waistband in your tights is too big for you. On the opposite, if you are short and you have a round shape, you will go for wider waistbands. Forget about baggy hosiery: A few cuts here and there and you’ll have your customised tights ready to rock! Everyone who tries them loves them. That can’t be a coincidence!

Couture Ultimates: No Seams Plus No Ladders!

Countdown to the arrival of the new Couture Ultimates range! Are you as excited as we are? In a few days, you’ll be able to judge by yourself. Until then, trust our word when we say this is one of the biggest hosiery innovations in years and it’s a Made-in-Britain innovation! The Couture Ultimates tights are completely seamless, do not ladder (ladder proof, rather than ladder resistant), have a leg smoothing effect and are truly beautiful. These in the picture above are The Diana, one of the seven patterned tights included in their AW16 collection.

The Next Big Thing in Opaques: Nanofabrics

Soft opaque tights are generally made of microfibre, but now Oroblu and Le Bourget have introduced nanofibres, instead of microfibres. Nanofibre yarn creates incredibly soft-touch and silky-effect textiles. Le Bourget Heritage Luxe 60 Denier Tights are the first nanofibre opaque tights we stock, although Oroblu is catching up Le Bourget with new nanofibre sheer tights: Oroblu Divine Tights, as you can see below.
