Previously mentioned in my Runway to Realway series, We Love Colors is a newcomer on the nylon scene, but they are rapidly cornering the market on colored pantyhose.
Offering opaque tights in over 50 colors (and that’s not including their fishnets, knee highs, checkered, or striped tights), We Love Colors currently has the best selection in their niche on the internet. For this article, I sampled the Nylon/Lycra Microfiber Tights in Rust (size M/L), the Wide Mesh Fishnets in Maroon, and the Sheer Knee Highs in Teal.
Let’s start with the fishnets. I knew I’d made a good decision when my date complimented me on my tights within the first five minutes. I like the widenets in particular because they’re perfect for wearing on their own or layering over other tights. I found these tights to be both comfortable and durable; they didn’t stretch out of shape or become baggy even after several hours of wear. A denser weave over the toes keeps them from poking through. At only $9.00/pair, I really don’t think you can go wrong here.
One important note…since the tights are one size fits all, pay attention to the sizing chart on the web page. I’m on the high end of their height/weight maximum and I’m pretty sure these tights would not work as well for someone who was much taller or weighed much more than me.
I have nothing but rave reviews for the knee highs and the opaque tights. I wore these both to work, and, like the fishnets, earned several compliments in the first five minutes. What I like about both the opaque tights and the sheer knee highs is that they’re fun enough to satisfy my yen for nylon, but conservative enough to wear under nice business slacks or even a dress.
The colors are rich, vibrant, and true even through a washing machine cycle (I know, I know…naughty Treacle). Most importantly, they’re comfortable. I wore the knee highs and the tights for a full nine hour work day, and they felt just as good at 6:00 p.m as they did at 9:00 a.m. No sagging, no bagging, no stretching, no falling, no runs…just great hosiery.
Like the fishnets, these tights and socks aren’t anything fancy, but they are fun and functional. Plus, at only $12.50/pair for the microfiber tights and $3.50/pair for the knee high socks, they’re cheap enough to build a good tights and stockings wardrobe with.
