Debenhams skin coloured tights

In the winter, tights become one of my most essential items. I like black, opaque ones and have many different denier ones, depending on the weather.
Nude tights are a great go-to in the colder months as no one can tell you're wearing tights and you're being kept warm. I would love to wear nude tights but I've always had one major problem: all the nude tights are for much fairer skin, so when I wear them, it looks like I have weird, inhuman coloured legs, so despite wanting to wear them, I've never been able to.

Then a little gem from Debenhams landing in my inbox. Debenhams have recently launched a hosiery line that suits all skin tones. The invisible skin tone tights come in all shades for women with fair, medium and dark skin, and cost just £3.50. As soon as I saw this I new had to try them out myself, and I got a package from the Debenhams PR team the next day with 2 pairs of tights, one in Olive and one in Bronze. A full range of colours available are: Olive, Bronze, Coffee, Beige and Honey.

As you can tell, the tights look really natural and match my skin tone perfectly. The bronze ones were a bit dark, but the olive ones really are invisible on me and pretty perfect. I paired them with a Henry Holland for Debenhams dress and Tesco flats.

And below is a picture of me without the tights. As you can see, there's no massive difference in leg colour. I would definitely recommend these to any girls as the range of colours means that there's a perfect colour out for you, no matter your skin tone.

The weather in Qatar, as you can see in the pictures, is amazing. It's absolutely scorching here and I've been sitting by the pool, just relaxing. (Although, it is a tad too hot to actually go out before 4pm!) These pictures were taken in the garden of my dads new house, and it's perfect for outfit shots.

Do you, or would you, wear nude tights? Have you had the same problem as me?

So jealous of you right now! Weather here is definitely thick tights weather.
That's really handy to know Debenhams have brought these out. I have the same problem finding the right tone, but more because my skin is ghostly white :D

Dressing Up For Me said...

I usually wear black or colored ones because I have the same problem as you! You look lovely in pink by the way and the color of your tights fits perfectly with your skin tone. :)

Nude tights are so perfect for creating the illusion of bare legs in fall and winter. You look fantastic, Sherin! :)

Elle Sees said...

What a great idea!

Merlins_wand said...

I adore this dress on you. That shade is great with your skin tone. The vintage feel from the flats and sunnies is lovely.

Those tights make your legs look flawless.

Ohmygosh, Sherin, you look GORGEOUS. I would have never known you were even wearing tights! They're a perfect match! Plus, that pink dress is phenomenal on you!

Not Just A Pretty Dress said...

The dress is so pretty! It seems that nude tights are back in fashion thanks to Kate Middleton. An Italian fashion web dedicated an entire article to the issue...anyway, I have to say that I rarely wear nude tights because I prefer either bare legs or the opaque ones... Have a great week!

Sandra said...

You look so nice. :)

Tariro said...

I always have trouble finding tigts pale enough for me so I don't know who they are making tights for if it's not either of us?!

I do wear nude tights but I rip them *so* often it's an expensive practice. In winter I stick to black opaques.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Sitting by the pool and relaxing right now? Sounds perfect. Sigh.

I love your dress. And I'm stunned those tights match you so perfectly! They're invisible! I need to get my hands on a pair like that this winter!

Clare said...

You look so cute. Flesh colored tights are all the rage now that Kate Middleton's worn them!

Cee said...

Nude coloured tights are such a difficult thing, I can never find exactly the right shade! These ones look absolutely perfect on you, though. Maybe there's hope for me yet :) The weather in Qatar looks amazing. Hope you're enjoying every moment of it!

kate middleton has been rocking the skin color tights for a few months now. i think it looks so classy & is perfect when i want to wear dresses but its too chilly for bare legs. looks so good on you!

annie said...

I have a black sister. It is funny when she would try to wear lighter tights, since they never matched her skin tone. But the dark ones were always too dark. I always thought it would be nice to find some with a broader range of tones....

I hope that you are having a lovely time in Quatar. Yes I do wear nude tights and do find it difficult to get just the right shade. My latest buy is some nude tights with a sort of design so they look like tattoos. I haven't managed to wear them yet.

✿Cathie✿ said...

I would definitely wear nude tights -- have before! Goodness, those Debenhams match you PERFECTLY! I might snag a pair for myself, if I can get them shipped to Canada.

P.S. Cute pink dress!!

Diana said...

this is awesome. I can never find tights that match my skintone either. but do you know if they have any stores like that in the US? because that's where i'm from.

ana said...

wow you really don't look as if you were wearing tights... great match with your skin tone and the dress is pretty pretty

Maria said...

I have the opposite problem, my skin is too pale and so tights never look right! You look gorgeous here and I am so jealous of all that heat!

I wish I could grind you thru your nude tights without removing my jeans & iron buckle belt.U know...just squeeze your legs tightly together in between mine & sit on you as I roughly upskirt you & dry hump violently.....squeeze your toes in between my cowboy boots would probably make u moan in pain...Lolx!
