As the weather is slowing turning for the better and we are all starting to think about showing our legs for the first time after a long cold winter it maybe slightly daunting to go completely bare.
Sheer tights are a wonderful alternative to wear during these warmer days & evening. They will make your legs look lovely and are designed to give you a bare leg look, with a flawless finish without looking too covered-up.
However, I don’t know about you but with all the sheer tights available on the market it can get quite confusing to know which ones to buy and also the dreaded question “can you wear sheer tights with sandals??”
Well here at PP HQ we will try and get all your questions answered…...
What are Sheer Tights??
Deniers lower than 20 are referred to as sheer tights, made of fine yarns, offering light leg coverage. Sheer tights are available in a variety of finishes including matt (none shiny), gloss (shiny) and natural (somewhere in between!).
The delicate nature of low denier tights must be taken into consideration when handling your sheers. As each strand of nylon yarn is thin, they are susceptible to tearing if they are put under too much stress – say from a snagged finger nail for example – and so extra care must be taken when handling your sheers.
What to look for when buying Sheer Tights
There are a two key points to consider when buying sheers tights:
- Colour options (Skin Tone Shades)
- What they will look like on your toes? (What is the right shoe to wear?)
Our Naturals range offers 6 skin tone shades for women with fair, medium and dark skin.
When considering which colour sheer tights to purchase, it's best to opt for a shade close to your natural skin colour, to give your legs a lovely sun kissed glow.
The other key point when buying sheer tights is what they will look like on your toes? Our Naturals range has four toe options Sheer, Toe Loop, Footsie & Open Toe Adjustable Tights which will suit every shoe style during the summer months.
Sheer Toe – means that the fabric will be the same thickness all the way over the leg, foot and toe. Sheer toes are fantastic worn with cute peep-toe shoes as there’s no change whatsoever in fabric around the toe area.
Toe Loop – has an opening at the toe’s with a discreet toe loop to secure the sheer tights in place .These are great for showing off your newly painted toenails in strappy sandals.
Footsie – designed to be hidden in your flat shoes such as ballet pumps, they will keep your feet feeling fresh all day as well as providing extra comfort for those hot days when you are on your feet all day.
Open Toe Adjustable Tights – brand new to Pretty Polly these will give you the same natural leg look all our Naturals sheer tights give you but with multiple ways of wearing.
The bottom of the sheer tight is completely open, and silicone has been applied around the opening so you position the sheer tight wherever you want to wear it. So you can wear it low around the ball of your foot with thong flips flops or higher as an open toe sheer tight with your wedges.
You choose the best position for the strap on your shoe, so deciding what shoes to put with your outfit will never be an issue.
