How to wear sheer hosiery the right way!
What you should do when wearing sheer tights…..
Make sure you spend some time choosing the correct shade of sheer tights to suit you.You can afford to go slightly darker for a sun kissed appearance or match your skin tone, but certainly ensure that you don’t go too pale as it will look odd. Silky Naturals, Smooth Knit, Shine, Ultra Gloss and Support Ranges all offer lots of options for varying skin tones.
Ensure you have the correct size!Bagging around the knees and wrinkling around the ankles will ruin the bare leg look. Use the size guides if you’re not sure, as every brand is bound to fit different shapes differently.
Think about your outfit and choose your sheers accordingly. Watch out for the boxer brief style or reinforced body if you’re wearing tiny shorts or a micro mini, so go sheer to waist for a flawless finish. Similarly if you’re planning on wearing peep toes consider going for an open toe tight or at the very least a sheer toe to avoid them looking too obvious.
What you should NOT do when wearing sheer tights…..
· Opt for a shiny finish if you want a bare leg look – Silky Shine Tights are not subtle.If it’s subtle you want, try our very NEW Naturals Range. If you’re worried about chunky calves or less-than-svelte thighs you should also avoid shiny tights as they can be unflattering. Matte tights make the legs look slimmer, but for the best natural look the ideal finish is a slight sheen that will mimic the natural glow of your skin.You can easily achieve this with our Ultra Gloss Range.
·Settle for the wrong shade or rush the buying process – think about what you need from your tights before you buy them. Do you need a comfy style you can wear all day? You might want to think about getting tights with a cotton gusset. Wearing to drinks under a slinky dress? Control top tights from our Naturals Range might be a good option that will slim as well as flatter your pins.
