PVC or wetlook leggings have been en vogue for several season now. They instantly update a look, are comfortable and go with an array of different outfits. However, this season the trend has stepped up a notch with the introduction of wetlook tights.
I decided to try a pair of purple wetlook tights by Aristoc (£15). The tights are possibly easier to wear in black but I love the aubergine colour and it matched the floral print of my dress perfectly. Unlike opaque tights, wetlook tights do not stretch much which means they are not super comfortable. The close fitting style actually makes them more flattering (trust me!) as it creates a smooth silhouette and they stayed up all night.

I recently spotted wetlook tights at Inbar Spector's Spring show where she teamed them with sheer ruffles and gothic styling. I think a sheer dress or skirt would look great with the tights if you're feeling adventurous.
I wanted to wear the tights to the 2008 Spectacle Wearer of the Year awards hosted by the lovely Gok Wan so I kept the look quite dressy with patent heels and a floral dress. However, I also found that the tights looked great with a black t-shirt dress and chunky pirate boots.
