Footloose and Fancy Free at The Gothic Shop!

Along with key pieces for my wardrobe, I do love good accessories- jewellery, hair accessories, belts, all the little extras that make a plain outfit into an amazing one! With the cooler autumn days just around the corner it pays to stock up on all of these to keep looking fabulous, especially as the festive season draws ever near.

Tights are a must have for any wardrobe. With something for all tastes and shapes, The Gothic Shop have a new range of footless and full tights along with a selection of dainty socks to see you through the cooler months. 

Keeping those tootsies warm in guaranteed style has never been easier with these gorgeous little numbers- here are just some of my favourites:

Front Slash Ripped Black Footless Tights  
Think tights are boring- take a look again! How about The Front Slash Ripped Black Footless Tights for unique? Whether you love the punk look, or are a fan of the more modern 1980's revival that seems to be everywhere at the moment- slashes in fashion are officially hot. Think retro chic with the ripped jeans look, only a heck of a lot sleeker. This gorgeous pair of tights from Pamela Mann that will give anyone a silhouette to die for. Team with your most daring heels or pair of winter boots for a cosy look. A short skirt or mini dress will really show off those slender slash details. These footless tights are one of the easiest ways to look fab fast!    

Pothole Fishnet Black Gothic Tights 
Adore the look of fishnets but want a quirky alternative to the well known sexy tights? The more detail the better and these Pothole Fishnet Tights by Pamela Mann are the perfect example. A great accessory to elongate the legs while still adding a cool twist to any little black dress. Instead of the traditional looking fishnets, your legs will be adorned with a delicate pothole design. Like all of the tights at The Gothic Shop, you will find they bring a figure flattering element to almost anything they are worn with. These sultry black full tights will look just as chic with a pair of daisy dukes or fitted PVC dress. The Pothole Fishnet Black Gothic Tights is urban elegance at it's very best.  

Plain Over the Knee Black Gothic Tights 
Tights are super chic in all their guises, they have the power to make an everyday outfit into a show stopping one. Hold ups are known for being some of the sexiest when it comes to leg wear. Put away the frills and you have a look that's elegant and very wearable during the daytime too. This clever design gives out the illusion that the wearer is in hold ups. Instead the darker panel at the bottom is held together with a sheer one at the top- these tights are all about the comfort and the practicality.
