Which tights to choose in summer: 3 products

Tights are much more than an accessory for a woman. But if in winter we don’t dare doubt their importance, in summer the dilemma arises: yes socks or no socks? The myth that you don’t wear tights in the summer has now been debunked! Tights are fine in summer, the important thing is to know  which tights to choose in summer  based on your needs.

There is a “stocking etiquette” which identifies occasions in which tights are absolutely required and almost obligatory, whether it is summer or not. Choosing summer tights is increasingly easier thanks to Ebay, which offers us all kinds, colourful, suitable for any summer shoe, you just need to know how to search.

Tights in summer, fashion takes a U-turn

If until a few years ago the catwalks offered us bare-leg winter dresses, now, with a U-turn, they suggest that 8/20 denier tights, light and at the same time very feminine, are a must. “Tights have always had the power to give women’s legs self-confidence during their outings, as well as making the silhouette more long-limbed and slender in the eyes of others .” 

But which tights to choose in summer? If we have some small imperfections to hide, we will choose opaque summer tights. If we want to make a summer outfit much more daring and sexy we will choose fishnet stockings, preferably in the evening. Be careful because this type of tights is not suitable for all occasions and above all it is not necessarily less warm than other types. 

The most popular are the sheer flesh-coloured tights, also considered necessary for good manners. Tights represent femininity in its pure state and, whether for etiquette or to cover imperfections, on the occasions that stocking etiquette requires, they can also be worn in summer.

In Italy we don’t have particularly strict “rules”, on the contrary, the bare leg is welcome, unless it is a formal occasion. In the professional sphere, some international companies are more permissive regarding dress code for Italian offices, and allow bare legs in the office. To get an idea, let’s look at our female politicians and compare them with English or German ones: Italian women have a decidedly more feminine and elegant look. 

Tights for brides, unless you are getting married on the beach, are almost obligatory, and sometimes they evolve into hold-ups, which are decidedly sexier. Tights remain a mandatory “choice” even for women who wear a uniform.

Sock etiquette

There is a “stocking etiquette“, according to which tights are not just a choice in summer, but almost a “duty”. Galas and ceremonies in general require stockings; in church, you should always wear tights, especially if you are the bride. The new generations have completely abolished flesh-colored tights, while etiquette considers them excellent for evening out the leg and giving a more elegant and sophisticated touch to our outfit.

During the day it is better to choose natural colored tights leaving the sheer black one for the evening. When we choose summer tights we evaluate the color based on our complexion, one piece of advice is not to opt for an effect that is neither too tanned nor too light.
