Spring has sprung and we're talking shorts! Practical, versatile and elegant, shorts are a wardrobe staple for warmer weather. And what hosiery solution do we have for shorts? That's right, our collection of seamed stockings are available as tights!
Whether you're channelling high-waist bombshell cut Marilyn Monroe styles, Rita Hayworth's classic tailored-tennis look or pulling off 1950s girl scout galore, shorts are incredibly versatile. Here, Katie wears a pair from The House Of Foxy ( who are one of our favourite repro brands for their quality and tailoring), which are based on a 1930s design.
For a nautical touch, try teaming navy with red. For the above look we've styled dark blue shorts with a Bernie Dexter striped top, a Collectif bolero and a knitted red scarf from Katie's collection. Shiny patent BAIT shoes complete the look.
Tights are a much better solution for shorts and shorter-length skirts as you don't have to worry about your stocking welts peeping out of the legs. If you're wearing close-fitting styles too, it means you don't get suspender strap marks through the fabric.

Here we've teamed this nautical look (jumper above by Rocket Originals) with our Red/Champagne Seamed Tights. If the weather was a little colder, another option would have been our Black/Champagne Tights, which would also have been a great way of styling these shorts as a winter outfit.
Our tights are also available in a range of colours to suit all outfits: Champagne/Black, Black/Black, Champagne/Latte, Champagne/Green, Champagne/Red, Champagne/Champagne, Champagne/Pink, Black/Red/ Opaque Black/Red Lace, Opaque Black/Grey Lace, Champagne/ Red Polka Dot and Champagne/ Black Polka Dot.
