Do-It-Yourself Fashion: Patterned Tights

Tights are everywhere, especially in the winter. They’re warm, colorful, and a great camouflage for winter-pale legs. They’re available in every color of the rainbow and can rev up a basic skirt-and-top ensemble as much as a pricey handbag. But how can you be sure that the pair you’re wearing is unique? The answer is simple: enhance them yourself. Thanks to Buzzfeed, one click will take you to a whole slew of ideas.

One post, courtesy of Fashionista.com, tells you how to make the ombre tights seen on the Christian Lacroix runway. If you're into crafty home projects, this could be right up your alley.

Another idea, from The Clothes Horse, requires only a pair of tights and a marker. While wearing the tights, use the marker to draw a design of your choosing. The blogger highly recommends that you wear a pair of black opaque tights under them to preserve your skin.

Not a fan of the crazy tights? Try a more subdued pattern in a darker color like on this Jonathan Aston pair ($18.25). Or for an alternative to black, opt for classic navy ($12.50).
