Last year I was on the hunt for the perfect tights: non-constricting and super opaque, and I even wrote a blog post about them. But this year I’m excited about fun tights with patterns or colors. I tend to choose black tights because I’m boring and have this weird insecurity (which is all in my head) that patterned or colored tights will make my legs look big. But cute tights instantly change an outfit. If you love dresses and live in a chillier place you kinda have to love tights because they’re the only things that will keep you warm. They even make sweater tights which will keep you even warmer, and you don’t have to stick to basic black.
Since my closet is pretty much an abyss of black I like the idea of wearing colored tights, especially jewel tones, but even the oatmeal sweater tights would be a great contrast and keep you warm. They are great daytime choices for boots and skirts. Patterned tights on the other hand seem super cheeky, especially the garter belt styles which are all kinds of sexy without showing skin. I like the idea of wearing a skirt that covers the garter until you choose to expose the design. Polka dot and patterned tights are super cute and would look great at parties. There are many different styles of tights out there and everyone should own at least a couple pairs, they add versatility, fun and a little sexiness to any wardrobe.
