Twiggy Style monochrome stripe tights

The classic and sleek statement of monochrome never fails to appear on the catwalks and the high street, with this years AW collections being no exception. The black and white block colour outfits began to emerge in the swinging 60's - the decade that broke fashion traditions. Twiggy became the poster girl for 1960's fashion with her trademark pixi haircut, cat eye-liner and monochrome mini dresses...

Another regular feature in Twiggy's modelling campaigns was fashionable leg wear. Never seen before coloured tights over knee tights, printed tights, spot tights and striped pantyhose adorned the legs of super-models. This eventually led to her very own range of Twiggy Tights, launched in 1969 at The Ritz hotel in London...

In order to get the endlessly timeless monochrome style and in honour of Twiggy's love of spotted tights and striped pantyhose, Essex'ee Legs has just the thing...

To create a modern and edgy monochrome look, reminiscent of the iconic 1960's style, team a black hot-pants and white shirt combo with Gipsy Monochrome Mock Over the Knee Tights, and some black patent brogues.

A gorgeous black and white A-line shift worn with Pamela Mann Penny Spot Tights and black high heel courts, would also be a pretty, and unique, choice this Autumn. Go on, go dotty for monochrome and stripes!
