Metallic studs are big news for autumn/winter 2013 on everything from jackets and skirts to shoes and bags, and studs are also gracing some cool hosiery this season, allowing you to easily update your style for an on-trend look.
Ever a leader in fashion for legs, Wolford has a stunning new studded design, the Roxette Tights. These transparent skin tone or black tights have a line of opaque fabric running in a vertical line down the front of the leg embellished with silver studs. Buy for £62 from Wolfordshop.co.uk.
Pamela Mann is all about bold legs, and the brand’s gold studded fashion opaques offer a fun wardrobe update at a great price. You can pick them up for just £8.99 from Tightsplease.
If you’re looking for a more colourful option, try Pretty Polly’s Cosmic Scatter Embellished Tights, £10 from Pretty Polly. These black opaques feature multi-sized studs in gold, blue and pink in clusters across on the front of the calf and are perfect for parties.
Speaking of parties, you could brighten up the studded look with a pair of Candy Baker’s diamante tights. The independent designer has been creating fun, fashionable embellished tights for a number of seasons, and her diamante collection comes in a number of designs including criss-crosses, backseams and ankle bows. We love the leg-slimming effect of the Super V tights, £33.
Candy Baker also offers a rather cool line of gold printed Art Deco inspired hosiery designs that would will look fab with this season’s fashions – check out the Thallium Gold Printed Tights, £40, with their elongating lines.
