Spring has finally arrived, but there’s still a chill in the air and we’re not quite ready to ditch our hosiery. Saying that, it is time to ditch the 100 denier black opaques.
Florals are still the go-to print for the second summer in a row – catwalks are full of blooms and leaf-inspired designs. For this reason, as well as to celebrate the grand appearance of the sunshine, we’ve picked out our top five floral tights to keep your legs on-trend and fun for spring.
Pamela Mann Freesia Tights
Pamela Mann is renowned for producing hosiery that makes legs stand out, and the spring/summer collection is no different. There are illusion hold-ups, polka dots, bold colour blocks and geometric prints. These floral tights however stood out for us. They’re a perfect way to brighten up your outfits before you manage to hit the shop for your summer wardrobe. Heading to a festival this year? Then these are perfect.

Jonathan Aston’s spring/summer line is awash with sports styling and British street style, and the brand’s new Printed collection combines ethnic symbols as well as landscaped scenery prints.

Celeste Stein Black Vogue Tights
Celeste Stein is an America brand available exclusively in the UK with mytights.com, and the brand’s collections are always bold. Celeste Stein’s take on the floral trend is a more graphic one this season and harks back to the 1960s, Mary Quant fashion design era. But we love it. Team with denim if you want to compete the 60s look.

Charnos Ornate Floral Tights
OK, so we don’t all want bold colours with our prints. The perfect way to make sheer nude tights a bit more interesting for work is subtle floral print. For spring/summer Charnos hosiery uses textural layering and subtle patterns to flatter and finish legs, and these nude patterned tights are no exception. Perfect for a spring work outfit (and for those chilly summer days).

Aristoc All Over Floral Tights
Again, if you don’t want the bold colours that floral designs come with, then Aristoc’s sheer black tights with this pretty floral design are perfect – and they’ll add a little interest to plain outfits. Aristoc’s spring/summer collection is full of plain sheers, but these tights are elegant and semi-transparent, styled in a lace-look
