You'd have to have been on another planet since February to not know that tartan is bang on trend this autumn. Appearing on the catwalk at House of Holland and D&G the trend has now filtered to the High Street and to tights! I decided to try out a pair to find out how to wear this season's hottest trend.
I chose a tartan pair by Pamela Mann (£7.95) and was initally very excited by the prospect. They're quite bright which is a bit shocking and they weren't as thick as I expected. I wanted to make the tights look as punk as possible so I teamed them with a pair of buckled ankle boots.
I wore them out to a party with black shorts and a black vest keeping the attention on the bright tights. I also tried them with a knitted pinafore dress (right) which mixed textures. I found the knitted dress was more flattering (possibly because it was slightly longer) and also thought that if you wore flat knee-high boots that it would be a good daytime ensemble. What do you think of the tights?
