Embellished Tights

February can feel like a rut month fashion wise; it’s too cold to dig out your favorite spring clothes, but your winter ensembles are starting to feel stale.  One way to freshen up your wardrobe is with embellished tights a trend picked up by luxe designers and stylish celebs.  Marchesa magically made a full leg tattoo look elegant, while Leighton Meester in Louis Vuitton and Custo Barcelona added trippy textured prints to draw attentions to the legs.  Here are four less expensive, but no less unique options for embellished tights.

For a sultry nighttime look, try faux tattoo tights by Christina Audigier ($44).  Let the surprise back flower detailing be the focus of the outfit and pair the tights with a simple one tone dress.

They’re kind of like the ankle bracelets you wore when you were in middle school, but about 1 million times more stylish.  Plus the attention down to your ankles with studded tights by INC International Concepts ($22.49).  Pair them with black booties to create a flattering trompe-l’oeil of where your shoe ends and your legs begin.

Tights don’t just have to be for girly girls.  Go for a more punk rock look with studded tights by French Connection ($88) that would standout with a contrasting flannel button down shirt.

Find the perfect shoes to wear with your tights, including booties and platforms.  Get the scoop on all of the best online deals with our list of this week’s online sample sales.
