zara have purple tights

SheikYerbouti Tue 07-Oct-08 18:00:55

I like the idea of them but I have legs like badly finished sausages.

Would they look shit?

savoycabbage Tue 07-Oct-08 18:01:32

Topshop have got them.

I wore some yellow tights the other day. Got some very strange looks on the school run, but I think they look nice. Got them from Primark, they've got them in almost every colour and were only £1.

new look have grape colour and turqouise and red

princesspeahead Tue 07-Oct-08 18:05:01

I have purple, grey and some rather groovy deep red ones

all from M&S I do believe

SheikYerbouti Tue 07-Oct-08 18:07:04

Yes yes yes, this is all well and good - BUT WILL THEY MAKE MY LEGS LOOK LIKE KRAKOWSKA?

3kids1cat Tue 07-Oct-08 18:10:23

No they wont. And if they are a bit thin, or you feel like you need more support wear two pairs, either two purple or put a black pair underneath.

I have some purple ones freom Debenhams. Also have bought some teal and navy ones from New Looka nd they are surprisngly good. I am going back to buy every colour they have. I am loving coloured tights at the moment.

MadBadandDangerousToKnow Tue 07-Oct-08 18:19:03

There was a tip-off on here a day or so ago that Next had tights in fab colours. I tried one branch today which had only black, brown and one pair of purple, but maybe the shop had already been raided by eager MNers!

GetOrfMoiLand Tue 07-Oct-08 18:20:26

Yes, second the recommendations for M&S. They last for ages.

Have purple ones and teal green ones - they both look fab.

twinsetandpearls Tue 07-Oct-08 18:28:28

I may try online for nexr, alhthough one person can only wear so many pairs of tights,

i.e. too much of it (but not allowed to complain because I moan even more if I'm quiet grin) and doing something new that makes me nervous/lacking in confidence!
