The style dilemma that we all have during the winter months is showing our pasty legs, but tights are the perfect solution for looking cute and stylish while still being practical.
With so many patterns, textures and styles there are endless possibilities on the type of style approach you want to take.
First and foremost are opaque tights. These can range from dark colors, like black or brown to hot pink and blue. It all depends on the style you are going for. These colored tights can spice up any ordinary outfit by giving it that little edge and giving you that pop of color.
Jewel tones and darker tights seem to be the more popular colors but with spring around the corner, more people will be choosing bright colors. When venturing out into the world of bright colored tights keep in mind that the brightness brings more attention to your legs so make sure you are comfortable showing them off and keep the rest of your outfit simple.
Textured tights are a great way to create a more feminine look. Textures include lace, fishnets, polka dots, ribbed and a variety of patterns like plaid. These tights give your outfit detail, whether they become the focal point of your outfit or compliment what you are wearing, this tight is always a good choice to have.
Shoes that look great with tights include, boots, ankle boots, flats, heels, and peep toe, just to name a few.
This trend can be paired with dresses, skirts, and dressy shorts. My favorite look is the sweater dress paired with tights and boots/ booties. You look super cute while staying warm.

If you like going out at night but want to say warm, try pairing a tight with a cute party dress and heels. Use accessories to spice up the outfit so you look
As the rocker, 80’s inspired trends roll on, if you want to go crazy, try cut out, ripped or studded tights. This look gives you that rocker edge that is totally hot right now. As said before, keep in mind that the embellishment will bring more attention to your legs so be prepared.
Tights also come in many lengths.
- The capri tight hits at your calf, for those days where temperatures rise.
- The ankle tight hits right at your ankle while still revealing your foot.
- The full length tight covers the whole foot, a great choice for those cold days.
Remember fashion is fun it is uniquely you!
