Add The Perfect Finishing Touch To Your Outfits With The Right Hosiery
Tights and stockings are a great way to layer up your outfits in the colder months. They can also add a formal accent to your outfits, making them perfect for professional environments like the office. Sheer stockings in natural tones are great for creating a flawless, airbrushed look if you don't want to go bare legged. If you're not keen on the skin-tight sensation of some hosiery, knee-high tights are ideal for wearing with long skirts or dress trousers. No matter the occasion or the outfit, tights and pantyhose can add comfort and flexibility to your styling options.
What is denier?
Denier is a unit of textile measurement that is equal to the mass in grams per 9000 metres of fibre. Originally derived from the weight of a strand of silk, it has been adopted as a way of indicating the density, thickness or "sheerness" of stockings and tights. The higher the denier measurement, the more opaque or thick the hosiery. Sheer stockings might be around 15 denier, whereas opaque tights have a denier of anywhere between 40 to 100.
What's the difference between hosiery types?
Stockings, tights, leggings and pantyhose are all types of hosiery - as are socks, if you want to get technical about it! Tights, stockings and pantyhose are terms that are often used interchangeably, though there are subtle differences between them. Pantyhose and stockings are the most lightweight, followed by tights which are a little thicker. They generally all cover the foot and extend up to the waist. Leggings are the most opaque and are typically footless in design, making them a great option for wearing with ballet flats or sandals.
How to take care of hosiery
Use a lingerie wash bag to ensure that delicate items like stockings and tights don't get damaged when laundering in the machine. Use the gentlest cycle possible in conjunction with a cool machine temperature. Alternatively, you can hand wash these items to preserve their longevity. Finally, take a little care when putting on and taking off your hosiery - rings, chipped fingernails, and shoe buckles can all snag tights and stockings.
