This was a tough one. I have a bebe store an avenue up from me, and the windows are always chock full of flash and unmentionable-grazing skirts. Not particularly my style. However, for the sake of my mission, I entered the store intent on finding something worth taking home. What did I find? Past the rows of polyester, cutout halter tops, and thick gold hoops, I found some really cool tights. Check these out:
Patterned tights are in this season, and these crocheted ones ($24) are surprisingly demure and ladylike.
Thanks to the non-existent skirt in the pic, you can see the interesting zig-zag pattern in this more modern pair.
Bebe offers an array of opaque tights as well – I wouldn't recommend the black as they are not fully opaque, but the grey pair looks sexy (in a classy way) due to the slightly transparent quality.
