Christmas party season is here, and many of you will probably have the headache to prove it. But for others, there’s still some time left to get a last minute party outfit together.
Stylist’s fashion team has already scouted out the most-shopped shoe for party season, reported on the rise of renting party outfits and rounded up all the best sequin dresses. They’ve also found the best dresses under £100 and the perfect tops to update your party look.
But there is one low-cost, easy-to-wear accessory that will see you through the season…
Earlier this year, Katie Holmes continued her sartorial reign of 2019 by stepping out in a black satin Saint Laurent dress. The talking point of the outfit was the pair of sheer, polka dot tights she wore with it. Finished with a pair of black, pointed heels – it was an easy-to-achieve, polished party look for the upcoming Christmas party season.

Then, Kylie Minogue – who, let’s face it, is the queen of Christmas – confirmed that polka dot tights really are the party accessory of the season. For her appearance on The Graham Norton Show last month, the singer wore a panelled polka dot Balmain dress, paired with polka dot tights.

She finished the festive look off with just a hint of silver sparkle on her heels – perfection.
And the celebrity love for polka dot tights didn’t stop there. Dua Lipa wore a pair with an off-the-shoulder white mini dress and platform heels. Thanks to the feather trim around the bust, Lipa’s look was 100% party animal.

Lipa wore the inspiring outfit at the Annual ARIA Awards in Australia in the last week of November, just in time for the party season.
Then, actor Lucy Boynton – whose 60s style we adore – proved she is also a fan of polka dot tights right now.

Of course, tights are an essential item throughout the winter months. We recently rounded up the best tights available to buy on the internet – from classic to printed styles.
But, if your eyes are full of dots right now, here are a few of the best pairs of polka dot tights to invest in.
As you go forth and embrace the dots, we’ll keep an eye out for any other celebrities who go dotty for the trend (that was a pun too far – sorry).
