We’re huge believers in the theory that the right underwear can make or break an outfit. Get the basics right and the rest of your outfit will look better than ever. This year’s Bawtry Fashion Week sees the experts from Wolford coming to Robinsons to offer you their top tips on getting the basics right, but in the meantime here’s a guide to the new SS16 collection from the luxury legwear specialist.

‘The many facets of today’s self-assured woman, who is fully aware of her own femininity and continues to reinterpret it, is at the heart of Wolford’s summer collection. The legwear collection is therefore offering a number of options to highlight this femininity in minimalist, modern and luxurious ways in summer 2016 – both with new summer essentials and on-trend legwear with the glamour factor, sport yet feminine stripes, sheer floral patterns or stunning net designs.’

The Essentials

Nude 8 feel more like make-up for your skin than traditional tights and an unreinforced toe means you can even wear them with sandals, signalling an end to the fashion faux-pas. Like Nude 8, Pure 10 fit like a second skin and are the softest tights on the market. Say goodbye to the traditional ‘American Tan - one colour fits all but suits nobody’ too; Pure 10 tights are available in six nude shades and classic black.


For Prettier Pins

Tights can go beyond basic to become the focus of your outfit and Wolford’s SS16 collection will up the glamour factor, taking your little black dress from simple to stunning.

Channel the Seventies with the shimmering silver threads of the Stardust tights or add a little je ne sais quoi with the flirty and fabulous ‘Paris’. We all know that our continental counterparts are some of the most stylish women in the world and we can imagine them slipping on their Paris tights for dates in cosy bistros and smoky bars. Thirty-six Swarovski crystals, applied by hand in Austria, run the length of the leg before disappearing into the hem of your skirt. Havana heels complete the flirty look, peeking seductively above your high heels with a nod to the vintage glamour of yesteryear.

If it’s romance that you want, Wolford’s Love tights and stay-ups will ensure all eyes are on those perfect pins, thanks to the ‘Love is enough’ scripture that runs the length of the legs.

Wolford’s Area Sales Manager, Alison Fraser, will be joining us in store at Robinsons on Friday 11th March from 10.30am to 3.30pm, offering one to one advice on the perfect legwear to finish your special occasion outfits. Have you made your appointment yet?
