Tights or no Tights?

tightsI say TIGHTS!

Seriously!  How fun are these?

Now that it’s getting cooler out you should TOTALLY consider picking up a few pairs… they keep your legs warm, look fashionable, add flair to a boring outfit, and let’s admit it…

they look fan. freaking! tastic. with boots.

BUT!

{ and there is always a “but” }

You are probably thinking unless they are grey or black, they’re a little too schoolyard? That your legs must be the size of matchsticks to pull ’em off?  Or be that twenty-somethin’-too-cute-for-words working at Urban Outfitters?

Not true.  Not anymore.

With different colors, patterns and textures to choose from, there’s no reason not to let a great pair of tights become the focal point of an outfit!

colored tights

If all the crazy colors frighten you a bit, try the deep jewel tones like emerald green, navy blue and dark maroon  – all are gorgeous hues that can be worn day or night.  And opaque tights are perfect for all shapes and sizes because they give a smooth look to the leg.

But how do you wear them when you’re over thirty (plus) without looking like you’re trying to be 20?

Best rule of thumb:

 Keep your clothes simple and one color.

A black shift dress looks awesome with a bright pair of tights.  Or be a little daring with a printed tight set against basic black.

If a fun pattern is where you’re at, tone it down with a knee-length skirt and knee-high boots so it gives a glimpse of tights, but gives your look a jolt of fun.

And don’t forget about layering.  If you have an old pair of fishnets, layer them over a gray pair of tights for a whole new look. Or grab a pair of knee-high socks to layer over coordinating tights with your boots.

There are so many options!

  1. Tights are great, but Stuff doesn’t take them unless they’re new :/ They really should be accepted and sold there, have to sell them on ebay instead.

    • That is usually the case because it’s hard to get a quality used pair of tights with little noticeable wear, especially for kids, but don’t despair! With the newer trends, our pricers are keeping their eyes open for just this thing.
