'Tis the season to not be basic!
When it comes to party season, there are a few go-to’s many of us rely on year after year. There's that little black dress that you rely on annually when the work Christmas party rolls around, the ever-reliable sequin top that raises jeans to a minimum-effort, maximum-impact status and the velvet dress bag that never fails to serve you on fancier occasions.
Tights are another festive-season staple that, for some reason, don't quite receive the kudos they deserve. They're low-cost, accessible to everyone and damn well keep us warm on freezing nights out.
If we haven't yet convinced you on the merits of party tights just yet, allow us to sartorially transport you back to earlier this year when Katie Holmes cemented herself as one of our most unexpected celebrity style crushes. Pairing a classic LBD with sheer polka-dot tights and killer heels, she proved that great hosiery can lift any look!
The fashion team at Irish Tatler have searched high and low to find the very best offering of party tights that’ll persuade us all to push beyond the limits of our trusted black 40 deniers.
