As the weather heats up, out come the strappy tops, summer dresses, bare legs and flip flops. But for those awkward in-between months when the sun’s shining but it’s not exactly hot – or for those who dread bare legs – footless tights are a fashion saviour. Lighter than leggings and leaving your feet room to breathe, the footless tight works with so many outfits to give you that extra bit of coverage.
And there are so many to choose from! From plain blacks to bright, all-over prints, fishnets and lace versions, there’s a pair of footless tights out there for every occasion. Here’s a selection of some of our favourites to inspire you.
These Shape It Up Leggings from Pretty Polly won’t only keep your legs covered but they’ll also shape them and your tummy as well so you can feel doubly confident.
Buy: Black, sizes S/M or M/L, £22. Pretty Polly.
