I NEED beautiful tights.

This winter I must have beautiful tights. I am fed up of skinny-jeans-and-knee-high-boots - well, bored enough to need other options.

So I have bought some be-ootiful caramel-coloured brogues and found some luvverly charity shop vintage skirts and now I need tights.

In my mind I am picturing textured, cable-knit, cream loveliness but not so thick that they bag at the ankles.

Anyone seen anything vaguely like that in their travels? I only get an afternoon in the shops once in a blue moon so I need to be able to rush in, buy and rush out.

Try Falke, they always have lovely tights. They are quite pricey but last for years so get lots of wear out of them.

Aristoc are pretty good and have some lovely designs.

H&M, they had them in their latest catalogue, worth a look, lots of different styles.

Now, you see, I never would have thought of H&M - I love S&B!

Falke & Aristoc - would they be a department store type thing or will I have to order?

<feels a sneak into town may be called for this weekend>

Heavens - have you seen these?!

Falke you can get from most big department stores and loads of places online. Check Outnet as quite often have bargains on there.

I bought some in New Look just after Christmas (friend suggested them for tights when I stated I just had to have grey cable knit tights). They're not strictly cable knit but the best I could find and they've actually lasted quite well. No bagging (even though I am skinny legged). In fact, they make my legs look a little chunky (I wear with denim skirt, chunky socks and slouchy leather boots).

Is a mobile web address so apologies if it doesn't work.

One thing; I found them a bit itchy around my tummy but not bad enough to stop wearing iyswim.

You need tabio

tethers was it the 110 denier that you recommended? tabio are 3 for 2 so I'm stocking up grin

cornsillx Tue 20-Sep-11 21:12:01

...and I don't know whether to get medium or large confused

tethersend Tue 20-Sep-11 21:38:25

ooh, 3 for 2?

Marvelous smile

yy, the 110 denier are my fave; they are on the large side.

Such indulgence is sure sign of impending world implosion

tethersend Tue 20-Sep-11 22:35:39

I will take you out for a drink in east London one day, moondog. You will have a fit grin

I did hang about down there in my yoof.
Now I am a woman who thinks a waterfall cardigan is outre.

tethersend Tue 20-Sep-11 23:30:11

yy am now the person I used to look at and think "What's she doing here? She's so old" grin

tethers - how accurate are the colour swatches for the tabio 110 den tights? i don't have good experinces of buying coloured tights online.......

Now - Falke have always been my friend - but recently less so - the batch I bought last year haven't survived to this - seem to have got their sizing wrong & changed the elasticity on the waist - am going Woolford merino blend this year - pricey but any Woolford I've had have always lasted me years so am going back.

& yes Moondog - WTFF???

<swoons at Tabio site>

Tethers - you are verily the font of all apparal knowledge - I shall spend A Lot of Money once the kids are in bed tonight.

Did no-one bat an eyelid at the integrated scok/tight combo then? Just me thinking it was wierd.

But then, Moondog did trump me with the freaky things.

I have ordered 3 pairs of tabio tights for work. I'm feeling very self- indulgent.
