Polka Dot Tights

I don't know about you but I am so tired of endless months of plain black opaque tights. I'm not giving up on them entirely but I'm finding myself more and more drawn to sheers, especially as the calendar (if not the weather) is moving into Spring. My pasty pallor doesn't lend itself well to bare legs so sheer tights are the perfect compromise for getting my legs out whilst not blinding anyone from the glare.

You can therefore imagine my delight at receiving some amazing polka dot sheer tights this week from Jonathan Aston's new Spring Summer 2013 range. The cartoony style of the big dots made me want to wear them with my Superman-blue skater skirt. So I did. AND I resisted any Clark Kent impulses to get changed in a phone box (not least because I haven't seen one in years).


Whilst I was gifted these beauties, I would definitely buy them myself as I've always been so impressed by the quality of Jonathan Aston tights. They have some of the most original designs that I've ever seen. Take a look at some of these attention-grabbers! I'm trying not to turn green with envy (or anger! Like the Hulk!) at the model's legs. Harumph.
