As the weather turns from Winter to Spring, trends in hosiery will change. Warmer weather and a shift in women’s wardrobes means that higher denier and dark hue tights are out. For those who don’t dare to bare leg, sheer tights are the perfect middle ground to make your legs look flawless. They still provide an element of warmth while also giving your legs a perfectly airbrushed finish. Sheer hosiery acts like makeup for legs working to conceal any blemishes or unwanted flaws and can be the perfect go to in the hotter months when opaque’s are not an option.
Luxury Legs has sheer tights from some of the worlds most renowned hosiery brands such as Wolford, SPANX and Falke. The collection ranges from glossy to matte looks and has a sheer hue to suit practically every skin tone. Here’s how sheer tights can make your legs look flawless this season.
Sheer Tights You Can Wear Anywhere
Luxury Legs has one of the biggest collection of sheer tights in the market, so you’ll be spoilt for choice. Each brand has their own unique styles to flatter your legs and provide the ultimate comfort. From SPANX’s added support around the thighs and waist to the seamless styles from Wolford, there is a pair of sheer tights for every outfit and wardrobe requirement at Luxury Legs.
How to Wear Sheer Tights
The Princess of Wales is our fashion inspiration when it comes to styling sheer tights. Thanks to royal protocol, she is rarely seen without a pair of sheer tights on, which is why she always has flawless looking legs. Our top pick to get the flawless look is the Falke Shelina 12 tights– super-sheer, soft and discreet these tights will give your legs a subtle summer glow and with an invisible toe they can be worn with an open shoe too. And better still, the Falke Shelina 12 range is available in 7 shades so you are guaranteed flawless legs whatever your skin tone.
Sheer tights aren’t just styled for the daytime in Spring, Summer and Autumn. For evening events where you want a silky smooth finish, choose a nude, sheer pair that seem like you’re wearing nothing. Beyonce often pairs her fabulous bodywear with sheer glossy tights for a silky smooth, flawless look. It’s rumoured that she is a huge fan of Wolford sheer tights and regularly wears these layered as a base for her flawless legs. For a more statement look, Beyonce favours wearing fishnets over the top of sheer tights for perfectly flawless legs. For extra support with evening wear or form-fitting clothing, Wolford has designed their Luxe 9 tights with a control top which work to shape the tummy, legs and lower half of the body creating a smooth silhouette.
Endless Options for Flawless Legs
In the true heights of summer, toeless tights are a great option as they go perfectly with sandals or wedges. Many toeless tights are designed with a divider that slots between the toes so that summer shoes can be kept expertly in place. With a multitude of toeless, shaping and colour-ways to choose from you will be spoilt for choice with sheer tights to make your legs look flawless.
Always remember that when choosing the colour of your sheer hosiery, try to match as closely as possible to your natural skin tone as sheer tights should blend seamlessly with your complexion. Many brands such as Wolford, Falke and Fogal provide great colour guides so you can find your perfect shade.
Get Flawless Legs with Hold Ups
During the warmer months when even tights aren’t an option, sheer stay-ups and stockings will become your best friend. Falke’s Invisible Deluxe 8 Denier stay ups have a beautiful lace trim and make a gorgeous addition to any summer outfit. Stay ups are great as they can be worn with fitted dresses with less fabric around your waist. For the perfect fit, Madame Fogal recommends it is essential to ‘Place the elastic a hands width from below the top of the tights for a comfortable fit.’ Also size down if possible as a tight grip is essential!
Above all, sheer hosiery needs to be handled with care and chosen carefully. Opt for the wrong tone of nude and your legs will look powdery or off key. Finding the perfect fit and hue is essential to creating the illusion of flawless legs all year round. When putting on and removing it is best to use hosiery gloves as fingernails are after all a tights greatest enemy. It is also a great idea to invest in a special hosiery bag and delicates wash to keep your tights fresh.
