Trend Alert: Walk the Tightrope
November 12, 2006
What a relief that we now have a warmth/style option for our legs other than footless leggings. Tights are no longer forbidden, or mark the wearer as completely un-cool. The arrival of tights back on the â€œacceptableâ€ list is reassuring, a.) because of winterâ€™s bone-chilling temperatures, and b.) because pasty, exposed legs look as bad as they feel. Thanks to the comeback of this familiar accessory our legs will be a little warmer this year. Black tights, like these Spanx â€˜Tight Endâ€™ Shaping Tights, keep not-so-slimming sweater dresses to a smooth monochromatic look and keep you comfortable in shorter hemlines. Theyâ€™re even showing up paired with cocktail dresses, and if youâ€™re feeling a little on the funky side, try these DKNY Graphic Plaid Tights, and add some optical illusion into your work wardrobe. Tights are the perfect wardrobe update for those steadfastly refusing to buy into leggings as anything other than gym wear.
