Fret not, for Tightsplease are on hand, rounding up our favourite celebrity looks and showing you how to wear footless no matter the occasion.
Where: shopping trips, alfresco lunches
Perhaps where footless styles are worn most, Kelly Brook caught our eye recently during a shopping trip in sunny LA. Showing us all how effective a splash of colour can be for updating wardrobe basics, the model/TV presenter/jack of all trades teamed a plain white sweater and summery flip flops with an eye-catching pair of coloured leggings.
Pulling off ‘relaxed daytime chic’ to a tee, there’s plenty of ways to recreate her look at Tightsplease. For a similar level of colour, opt for the Pamela Mann Sweeties Leggings or Trasparenze Graphium Leggings. But if you wanted to wear something a little less busy, the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Footless Tights are a must, and come in quite literally every colour of the rainbow.
Where: the office, after work socialising
While you might associate footless styles with more informal events, there’s no reason why they can’t also form part of a smart casual ensemble. And if designer of the moment Victoria Beckham is doing it, you know you’re in good sartorial company. On a promotional trail for her latest fashion collection, VB teamed a classic black overcoat with her trademark stiletto heels and the pièce de résistance; a pair of gorgeous floral leggings.
Classic enough to wear at your desk and giving her business wardrobe a hint of personality, follow her lead with the Oroblu Bouquet Leggings, which feature a similar floral print. Or if you wanted to steer clear of prints, try out the Wolford Holly Leggings, thick enough to be worn as trousers and ideal for a spot of ‘at your desk luxury’.
Where: swanky dinners, cocktail bars
Rosie Huntington Whiteley
Proving that a night on the tiles doesn’t always have to involve your LBD, supermodel Rosie Huntington Whitely wowed us all in this vampy ensembles. Wearing a chic tailored blazer with colourful blouse and strappy heels, what stood out most for us were her leather leggings.

Mirror her look in the Pamela Mann Leather Look Leggings, opting for the Wet Look alternative for something with even more shine. Or for the same appearance but with hidden shaping control, no wardrobe should be without the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings. Fashion + Function = a winner in our eyes!
