Forget everything you thought you knew about coloured tights because AW18 Fashion Week is here! Where 90s fashion is a thing of the past. We’re now back in the 80’s and coloured tights are finally having their moment to shine.
It started off at this year’s Tom Ford Fashion Show, where everything that was acceptable in the 80s was back with a vengeance from babydolls, power suits and of course colourful patterned tights.
Then Fashion Designer Adam Selman also hit back with the 80’s vibe, showcasing a wonderful collection of colourful designs, created to achieve that perfect colour blocking style. But of course, the fashion item that stood out the most was the sheer coloured tights, from orange to light pink.
Then Moschino’s very own Jeremy Scott took us back to the space ages of the 80’s with sci-fi inspired metallic dresses, thigh-high moon boots and coloured tights. Supermodel Gigi Hadid donned this out of space look on the runway featuring a bright pink wig.
Stay ahead of AW18 this year by upgrading your tights with a pop of colour. Forget black opaque tights, reach for something more vibrant and give your wardrobe a high fashion lift. Follow our 5 style tips on how to give this high fashion look at go!
