The arrival of December makes it official. This the season to sparkle! To dress up, get together and celebrate with your family and friends. At UK Tights we never say No to a good party, but one must party in style. Do not fear, since here we bring you THE list with the top 2019 party tights you need and a few tips to do the best of your party hosiery. Keep reading to join us in the festive mood!
You need a pair of lurex tights right now!
Lurex tights are the ONE style for the season. And we aren’t only talking about the festive season. Truth to be told, lurex hosiery has been hugely popular in 2019 and they’ll stay on trend for 2020. If you don’t dare to wear sparkly lurex tights on your every day, then a Christmas dinner is the excuse you were waiting for.
We feel like we have to tell you something, though. Something magical happens when you wear lurex tights. Everyone around you magically starts to praise your new tights and tell you how much they love it. Try it and let us know if you’ve also felt the magic power of lurex legwear.
Other lurex tights to die for right now:
- Any of the Giulia party hosiery styles, but particularly these three band mock-up lurex tights.
- The thicker Trasparenze Deejay lurex Tights. Being 60 denier, they are ideal to wear when you are going out. That’s your Christmas markets outfit sorted!
- The luxury lurex tights of Pierre Mantoux we featured in our 2020 leg style guide.
Black fishnets? Even better: Sparkly fishnet tights
Black fishnets are always a good idea for a party look, as they feel really festive and look amazing with all sorts of looks, from the more casual, to the more elegant; paired with trainers, ankle boots or high heels. If you are a fan of everything that sparks, you should definitely give a go to some sparkly lurex fishnets. They are absolutely stunning! Trasparenze and Giulia have some lurex fishnet tights we can totally recommend for the Christmas party season. Or you can try these Charnos mock-up lurex fishnets if you are afraid of being too cold.
- If you prefer hold ups, the Trasparenze Buttercup lurex fishnet hold ups are delightful!
What tights to wear with an already sparkly dress?
We get asked about this a lot and it’s totally understandable, because…. would you wear lurex tights with a sequined dress? Too much, right? It’s perfectly fine to wear black matte tights with a sequined dress. Black sheer tights would be the most ideal choice. Nevertheless, you could go for black opaque tights if you wear black shoes. We suggest matte tights instead of glossy because sequins are sparkly enough and matte hosiery provide a nice contrast here.
For those who want a minimal look
Not everyone loves super sparkly tights like we do, we get it. We’ve got it all covered. You can always go for plain tights with little embellished details, like the tights above or the beautiful Trasparenze Geranium Tights at the beginning of this post. These sheer tights with a jewel detail are another great example and a classic back seam always adds a touch of glamour to any outfit.
So, tell us. What of these 2019 party tights do you like the most? Do you have your party outfit ready? Make sure to check our party tights section for further inspiration. We add new styles every week!
Maybe you can try fishnet tights with lurex sparkle. Here you have some good ones.

Thanks, Paul. I’d say quality-wise, Fogal would be first, then Falke and, following very close, Trasparenze. We have to say that Trasparenze is creating some amazing fashion tights now, which are really good quality, we believe.
I’m a crossdresser too and love black fishnet tights and a pair with some sparkle will look so sexy with my party dresses.
My husband loves the way my legs look in fishnets.
I’ve worn lurex tights in the past but didn’t like them all that much.
I Love the new Trasparenze line, I think the Geranium and Gardenia Fishnet Tights are Very Pretty.
I see they are made in Italy, do you think they are as nice as Fogel or Falke ?
Yes, that could be a solution. Good quality lurex doesn’t feel as itchy as the inexpensive lurex tights. We have these 60 denier lurex tights, which aren’t as itchy. These are obviously more opaque than the other styles we have. Also, lurex tights aren’t usually very stretchy, so if you are in-between sizes, it’s best to size up.
thanks uk tights…yous are amazing..always pointing me in the right direction with my girlie outfits xxx
I would like to try some sparkly lurex hosiery this holiday season but I’ve heard that lurex yarn can be quite scratchy… perhaps wearing a pair of very sheer nude pantyhose underneath the lurex hose would provide a good base layer?
It should good look together, yes. Why not 🙂
sparkly tights?? mmmmmm… I have a purple sparkly pair i bought years ago…they are there somewhere…..think ahl need to get a tan coloured look or black sparkly…I think they would be utterly gorgeous with my knee high boots…thoughts guys??? xxx
Hi Randy, do you mean sparkly or glossy? We’re sure you’ll get many compliments with either of them!
Thanks for your answer and Merry Christmas from the UK Tights team!
I always love wearing sparkle tights in fact I wear them 4 out of 7 days a week. I love the way they make my legs look and have many colors to choose from. They look classy ,fashionable plus they are attention getting for those who can wear openly. I know myself have got many compliments from those that know I wear hosiery as fashion only.
