14 pairs of patterned tights to choose from this season - plus how to style them

Patterned tights are the ultimate new season accessory

Anyone else have a love/hate relationship with tights? They keep you warm (kind of), hide a multitude of sins (who needs fake tan?) and a patterned pair is one of the easiest ways to make a statement with an otherwise very ordinary outfit.

Thankfully, they've become a lot more chic in recent years. Case in point? ChanelGucci and Fendi's coveted logo printed tights which took social media by storm. One of the most accessible ways to wear your favourite designer label, they're now ironically notoriously difficult to get hold of, but the high street has plenty of patterned pairs to elevate your look.

How to wear patterned tights?

Look to Katie Holmes for inspiration for party season. The actress teamed her statement spotty tights with a little black dress. Adele rocked her polka dot tights with a plain black bodysuit during her Vogue cover shoot, and Sienna Miller has worn her Gucci tights with a crystal-embellished minidress and a black puff sleeve mini.

The moral of the story - go sheer or go home. Let your tights have the spotlight and keep the rest of the outfit fairly simple. A pair of sheer tights can also look amazing underneath a pair of trousers with a stylish stiletto shoe. Go for a pair of fishnet tights scattered with diamante jewels to liven up your look.
