Pretty Polly ~ Tights Galore!

28 Feb

As the weather turns from slightly cold to slightly less cold (we’re experiencing a strangely mild winter where I live), my thoughts turn to tights. Usually by the time March rolls around, I am still stuck wearing thick, wooly tights and legwarmers.

This season however, I find myself pondering the transitional legwear needed for a mild spring. Nothing too bulky, nothing too skimpy, warm enough but not roasting in my boots.

Pretty Polly, one of the UK’s oldest legwear brands, has some fantastic high-quality tights to suit just about every single desire I have right now for interesting and fun legwear!

While a thick pair of 200 denier fleece tights or 150 denier angora blend tights will keep my legs warm in case of a sudden snow-storm, blustery spring days call for something thinner, such as 120 denier modal tights. If the spring weather becomes confusingly-warmer, switching to a pair of 60 denier plush tights will be much more comfortable!

After warmer weather sets in, it gets easier to have fun with one’s wardrobe and legwear. The examples below are so much fun! I’m obsessed with the faux-suspender tights! ♥

I also LOVE a good pair of nylons, although I’m afraid they get a bad reputation from being compared to the awful, low-quality of drug store nylons. These are NOT those, my friends.

Pretty Polly 10 denier nylons come in a wide variety of colors, from skin-tone to gray to black shades, in several different styles such as lace hold ups, full-leg backseams, glossy stockings and glossy full-leg nylons.

The collaboration of Pretty Polly for House of Holland has yielded some awesomely-modern designs as well; having Jessie J model for the campaign is certainly eye opening too! They get bonus points for being extremely affordable and high-quality to boot! ♥ ♥ ♥

Pretty Polly is available from their website (with international shipping), and in the US from My Tights.
