Style on Trial: Button-up tights from Wolford

Wolford_tights

Multi-tasking tights! They’re just what the world has been waiting for, surely!

These button-up cable-knit tights by Wolford can be worn any way you want them: knee high, thigh-high, full length, or just as a pair of big, wooly knickers. It’s certainly an interesting idea, and don’t get us wrong, we don’t hate them – it’s just that we know without doubt that were these to find their way into the Fashion Police wardrobe, we’d still only ever wear them as full-length tights – and find ourselves cursing the gappy bits at the knees and thighs every time we did.

What do you think of them? A good idea, or just a bit pointless, really? And does the fact that they’re £139 change your mind at all?

    A bit pointless, but will certainly add some unique flair to the right outfit – when worn full-length, I think they’d probably look fairly silly worn any other way.

    Nope, I can’t see myself donning these. Here in Vancouver, if it’s cold enough to wear woolly tights, you’re going to freeze if there are bits of skin exposed.

    Again, another completely useless invention!

    If you look at them from bottom to top, theq are cute, in a schoolgirl/laungerie kinda way. But if you look at them from top to bottom, they are icky, in a diaper fetishist/schooltramp kinda way.
    And yes, the price makes a difference. It could morph into a cute trend, but nothing that offers the possibility for the best tanlines of all time should be done in a pay-your-rent-late kinda way.

    I’d wear them if I got them for free, but not with that price .-.

    They’re not exactly ugly, but i’d rather just buy a pair of slashed/ripped tights, or rip them myself! Seems like it would look alot better that way.
