Irregular Choice: Tights Collection

You responded well to my Top 12 Irregular Choice shoes of 2018 and when I asked if you wanted to see more 'random' posts like that, you did! You also had some great suggestions, so I am going to hopefully continue with blasts from the pasts and bits of my collection without the need to be relevant to whichever season/collection we are in. Today I have my Irregular Choice tights collection. I didn't even realise I had a "collection" to be honest, I seem to have amassed them rather quickly. I've said this before, but I always thought I was too big for IC tights (they are 'one size'). While my lower legs and bottom are maybe average-ish sized, my tummy, hips and thighs aren't, so I had my concerns. It wasn't until The Muppets collection that it became a case of "I can't live without these" when I saw them on IC's Instagram Stories the morning of the launch and they just looked so perfect with the shoes, that I took the plunge and 13 pairs later, here we are! pile of colourful printed, patterned Irregular Choice tights
These tights are thicker than your average, so less likely to snag or rip, though obviously you still have to be careful. They are mega stretchy and they don't sit too low on my hips (I'm a fan of tights up to my neck!), but I'm just 5ft 5 1/2". I love that the print has no start and finish, so no annoying lines down the outer leg and the pattern always continues all the way down to the toe (if you're wearing with open or peep toes).
