Fashion Top Five: Sane-Looking Patterned Tights

November 12, 2008 by Rebekah

We love certain patterned tights, but we’re conflicted about supporting the category as a whole. Some patterns, like complicated flowery lace or horizontal stripes, can make legs look bizarre or stumpy. But others – including the five below – are a flattering way to add texture to an outfit. As a bonus, they’ll probably help keep your legs from freezing off.

These Diamond-Knit Tights ($9.50) will keep the chill out – no holes here – but the nylon/spandex knit isn’t too chunky.

SPANX Tight-End Tights in Geo Stripe ($42) are my new favorite fall tights; they add interest to my extensive LBD collection and have a flattering vertical pattern.

Probably the most out-there pick in the bunch, Urban Outfitters’ two-tone tights ($14) mimic the look of Sarah Jessica Parker’s absurdly expensive Chanel pair (they sell for $250).

These ribbed tights ($16.50) have a subtler pattern than the pair above – you could even pair them with a printed dress.

We think every woman should own a pair of fishnet stockings ($12.50 at Bare Necessities); just make sure the knit is relatively small, and please promise not to wear them with miniskirts.
