Now then..this is a good idea! You might not realise that tights manufacturers use a similar colour process to the cosmetic industry to get tights that are right for international skin colours – and some do it better than others. I’m a FALKE fan through and through, although sometimes nearly cry at the prices – eek. The new Perfect Skin Colours use a similar method to how foundations are made – taking the four most prevalent international shades and building from that. The result is that you get tights that are as near to a perfect skin tone match; the aim is for an airbrushed leg look.
I also had never really realised that the swatches in store in tights departments are for you to match to your tone – I just thought they hung there so we could see the colours properly. Perfect Skin Colours Tights range from very pale skin to dark brown (Crystal, Golden, Cocoon, Powder, Brasil, Noisette, Sun or Coffee) and if you buy your first pair in store, you get a card with your nearest match so any future purchases on line will be mistake proof.
It’s years since I’ve worn anything other than black tights, to be honest. I’ve always been a bit scared of American Tan type errors, but I’m starting to think that maybe I could wear these.
