Statement Tights

My goodness, what wintry weather we're having in London! There's proper bona fide snow on the ground which I find, quite frankly, shocking. Isn't British snow supposed to turn to grey slush within seconds? Somebody didn't get the memo...

Despite my exclamations, I'm still in total denial with the weather and have been dressing rather inappropriately for minus temperatures. As such, I thought that today would be a perfect day to try out some statement tights that I was kindly sent by Jonathan Aston. Whilst this may seem like an odd choice for a snowy day, in my defence I wasn't actually planning on being outside at all, just making the short trip from front door to car. So there. In your face, snow!

My tights of choice are generally black opaques, however I do occasionally like to make more of a statement with my legwear, be it through sheers, different colours or patterns. These tights are delightfully bonkers with their mix of opaque, sheer and polka dots all thrown together. They're bold as brass so I thought that anything other than an all black outfit would take the focus away. Consequently, this is my fourth black outfit in a row, I hope you don't mind. ('Cos I don't - ha!).

Saint or sinner? You decide...
"Pop it. Lock it. Polka dot it." One of the most profound quotes of recent times. 
I couldn't take my eyes off them!

If you haven't already checked out Jonathan Aston's range of tights then you REALLY must! They have just about every style you can think of, from the basic to the dramatic. This was the first time I'd tried out anything other than their opaques and I was so impressed with the quality. Marvellous.

P.S. Apologies for the indoor photos - it was snowing so much that no way was I taking my fancy camera out in that. No. Way.

  1. Those tights are something completely new to me, they're awesome! Also, you look awesome in this outfit, you inspire me to wear more black. This is a bit odd, but I really lean on colour a lot, and should probably go for a more elegant black more often. I love how you have accessorised this :D

    1. Thanks! These tights are so fun, you should go for it!

  2. Those tights are beyond cool - I've never seen anything like them before.. good find!
