As a mother of two teenage girls, I can attest that the most popular leg wear for this age group is footless tights!  Footless tights, not to be confused with leggings which are technically pants (think ‘sewn’ rather than woven) are essentially tights without feet. As such, when stretched they become somewhat sheer, which is why they should never be worn without a long tunic, dress or skirt to cover the nether regions.

So what are the advantages of wearing footless tights over leggings? Firstly, you may have a daughter like mine who detests the feel of a seam, especially close to her skin. There are no irritating seams, and no issue where the feet pull the top down, resulting in an annoying suspended crotch. Another brilliant benefit with this leg wear is that children tend to get longer wear from them, both because they outlive small growth spurts and because they’re easier to pull on.

Our most versatile footless tight is the Duvet by Franzoni. Guaranteed to become a wardrobe staple, it comes in two lengths, a capri (a ¾ length that sits just below the knee) and an ankle length, ideal for cooler days or if you prefer more leg coverage. The Duvet is versatile, including suitable legwear for exercise with its super stretch and 3D weave which  provides a totally opaque appearance.                        Fable Footless tights suit older girls & teens
