As models graced the runway at the Mulberry A/W17 show in textured, woolly hosiery, it was clear to see legs are in for a cosy treat.

This season, Jonathan Aston is proving fashion can be comfortable with its ‘Urban Knits’.

Key styles include the cable knit Siesta tight, available in black, grey and marl; the Linear tight, which makes a statement with horizontal detailing; the Link tight, featuring decorative side cable to give the illusion of never-ending legs; and the flecked Peace Tight.

Sock options under Urban Knits include the Weave over-the-knee socks in grey; 80s-inspired Snug leg warmers; the Serene Sock, available in pink, grey and oatmeal; and the colourful Twist sock with frill tops.

After Dark

The After Dark look is all about dressing for late-night parties.

A range of patterned sheers, embellished opaques, and vintage-inspired nets are available under this theme.

Key styles include the Glitz tight inspired by the metallic designs featured on the Christopher Kane AW17 catwalk; the glitter embellished Twilight tight; the shredded opaque Flare tight; and the Micronet fishnets.

In terms of socks that are made to be seen, Jonathan Aston offers the sexy sheer Halo anklet with stripes at the ankle; the Henna anklet inspired by Mehndi and the glitter embellished Dazzle sock.

Modern Heritage

Jonathan Aston has given school tights a modern update with this theme – think St. Trinian’s meets Parisian chic.

Key styles include the diamond-patterned Blake tight; the monochrome checked Bonny tight inspired by 90s teenage comedy Clueless; and the Teva tights, featuring a criss-cross pattern.

Socks include the Isla sock, featuring gold tops; and the Logan sock, designed with colourful stripes and monochrome gingham detailing.
