Nylons and tights for spring and summer
Spring is in sight! Really! I have already spotted the first crocuses and the sun is shining a little longer every day. So I can finally swap thermal tights for more delicate hoseriey again. And even when it gets really warm over the course of spring and summer, we don’t have to do without the pretty legwear. There are lots of great hosiery items that you can wear even on warm days and that also look great with light summer dresses. Below I will show you my favorite nylons and tights for the cooler and warmer days in spring and summer.
What to keep in Mind when looking for Hosiery for Spring and Summer
There are a few things you should keep in mind when looking for stockings and tights for the warm season. Because we all don’t want to sweat that much, do we?
- On warm days, choose very delicate and thin stockings or tights with not more than 20 den, less than 20 den are even better. By the way: The less den, the lighter the hosiery. Read more about this topic here.
- Shades that are similar to your skin colour or pastel colours go very well with lovely summer dresses.
- You can even wear tights with shoes like sandals! Check out this style guide for more information.
- Hold-ups are not my first choice when it comes to hosiery on warm days. When you are sweating, the silicon bands might no longer hold that well on your thighs. So if I want to wear a specific pair of hold-ups on warm days, I team them with a garter belt to keep them in place and feel save all day (or night) long.
For chilly Spring Days: Colourful, opaque Tights
Let’s start with some gorgeous tights for chilly spring days (we have a lot of these here in Germany, believe me ;-)). On such days, I like to wear warm and opaque tights. However, I usually choose some more fun and colourful ones in spring. 😉
Sheer Tights with lovely Details
The warmer it get’s, the more delicate are my tights. This is why I go for sheer tights with some lovely details when the weather is good. I also choose some colourful tights every now and then. By the way: If you want to know how to style colourful hosiery, check out this blogpost.
Cool Fishnet Tights for hot Days
Fishnet tights are a perfect choice for hot days! They make ones legs look great, while they are definitely not too warm. By the way, there are not only black fishnets available, but also beige and colourful ones!
Delicate Nylon Stockings in Pastel Colours
Let’s talk about my favourite kind of hosiery for the warm season: Delicate, fully fashioned nylons in pastel colours! I own a lot of this kind of nylons, believe me! But they simply look amazing in combination with colourful summer dresses. PS: Most of my paste coloured stockings are by Secrets in Lace.
Sheer Nylons and Tights for Spring and Summer
If the last few nylons and tights were too colourful for you, I can recommend delicate ones in the shade of your skin colour. I personally love the wear sheer nylons with a sublte seam on summer days, as they look very elegant and go well with my light summer dresses.
