Winter is coming! Which means it’s time to begin the switch from our lightweight, floaty summer lounge pieces to our cosy winter ones. And few fabrics feel as luxuriously warm, soft and comfy – and look as glamorous – as velvet does.
There are a number of reasons to consider wearing wool tights or stockings this winter. For one thing, it’s well known that wool is insulating. The naturally wavy shape of the fibers traps a layer of air against your skin, which keeps you nice and warm.
Cotton can be a wonderful fibre for hosiery for a few reasons. It’s soft, it’s durable, and it lets your skin breathe, which may be the difference between your thick winter tights feeling comfortably warm and unpleasantly sweaty.
Astrological-inspired lingerie continues to be a trend, and Love & Swans’ latest set takes the theme to a luxurious new level. Named Cygnus, the set is made from midnight-blue mesh that is lavishly embellished with a celestial array of stars and clustered constellations.
