Trend Alert: Tights for All
October 27, 2006
Tights. It seemed that for quite some time they were forbidden. Really anything on your legs was forbidden, which was a bold move considering a.) winterâ€™s bone-chilling temperatures, and b.) legs without summer suntans can be frightful. But thanks to the comeback of a familiar accessory your legs will be a little warmer this year. Black tights keep not-so-slimming (no matter how dark they are) sweater dresses to a monochromatic look and keep you comfortable in shorter hemlines. Theyâ€™re even showing up paired with cocktail dresses. And theyâ€™re the perfect modest wardrobe update for those of us who refuse to buy into leggings as anything other than gym wear.
J. Crewâ€™s black crocheted pair add a little texture and Banana Republic has an opaque pair with fine ribbing. But Spanx may offer the most perfect pair. Get the companyâ€™s slimming results and a plain, opaque look.
What do need to go with a great pair of tights? Two legs and hot pair of shoes. Choose round-toe ballet flats or mid-calf leather boots from nordstrom.com for a fashionable fall while shipping is FREE.
