FAIRTRADE FRIDAY: TIGHTS

I’ve literally worn tights every day this week and it’s getting to the point where I have to start thinking about ethical replacements. Here are some of my favourite from two great brands:Tights

1. Organic cotton everyday tights by PACT for $17.99USD / 2. Dove grey basketweave tights by PACT for $20.00USD / 3. Dove grey ombre tights by PACT for $20.00USD /  4. Chevron beetroot tights by Tightology for $39.95AUD / 5. Sotto tights by Tightology for $35.00AUD


DETAILS

1. PACT organic cotton everyday tights available online for $17.99USD.

Black tights are one of the most worn items in my wardrobe. I love them in winter under colourful dresses with a black coat or under tweed high-waisted shorts with ankle boots and a chunky knit. This is a great, warm option to replace my current pair. Another good option for black tights is these lightweight fashion tights by Maggie’s Organics for $28.00 (Made with transparency in a fair trade arrangement in Peru) which are a bit more sheer.

2. PACT dove grey basketweave tights available online for $20.00USD.

Dove grey is my favourite colour this season. I’m also loving interesting but subtle patterns like this basketweave, which add a little something to an otherwise simple piece.

3. PACT dove grey ombre tights available online for $20.00USD.

Ethical credentials: Made with transparency in a fair trade arrangement. Made with ‘no pesticides, no fertilizers, no bleaches, no sweatshops, no nasty stuff at all’.


4. Tightology chevron beetroot tights available online for $39.95AUD.

Berry shades are always a great colour for autumn/fall and winter. A little softer than red, they work really well with greys, taupes, creams and, of course, black. Teamed with a chevron print, these are a great statement tight.

5. Tighology Sotto tights available online for $35.00AUD.

Available in navy, red and black.

Ethical credentials: Made in Australia and Italy.

    I LOVE PACT! I have a pair of their tights and a set of brightly-patterened knee socks that I love!
