I’m having a no-pants party, and you’re all invited.
But seriously, tights are having a moment. We’re in the midst of that awkward, transitional time where it’s officially spring this week, but chilly temperatures are giving us pause. I’m chomping at the bit to bust out my warm-weather frocks, but not at the risk of freezing my tush off.
Thick hosiery is the perfect solution. Throw on a pair to give some longevity to your winter dresses or to keep your sundresses seasonally appropriate. Retailers are offering tights in a rainbow of hues and zany patterns so you can really make a statement with your stems.
We love booties for transitional seasons and the bootie-and-tights combo is perfect for a spring transition. I took a go-to uniform—black bag, black dress, black booties—up a notch with patterned tights and strong accessories. An arm party or colorful mani also adds style and flair.
This is a great outfit for a casual day at the office followed by drinks or a date. Comfortable, polished, but not too wild. Patterned tights allow you to express a bit of personal style in an understated fashion. We’ve recently been loving subtle stripes or a unique pattern only on the back of the leg.
