I had to blog about it.
Not a hard task, as tights have many positive attributes:
1. They keep the cold at bay on frigid days.
2. In a dark color, legs appear slim and trim.
3. They don’t cost an arm and a leg (You’ll spend less that $35…unless you’re buying Wolford, which in this case is totally unecessary).
4. In my experience, opaque tights almost never get runs like sheer hose.
Aren’t we glad they’re so trendy?
As with any trend, there are flattering and unflattering ways to wear them. Let’s look at a few celebrity examples:
Now for the train wrecks:
My absolute favorite brands of tights would be Spanx. I have two pairs of Spanx’s Reversible Tight End Tights. They’re navy, dark brown, or grey on one side, and black on the other. Two tights for the price of one for *only* $32! If that’s too steep, Hue has great tights and footless tights for $11 each or 2 for $17.50. Visit their website at www.hue.com.
And take heart. Once this fad passes, you can wear your tights under pants for an extra degree of warmth (hear that my Northeasterners??)
PS In my opinion, it’s totally fine to follow trends occasionally…as long as you keep it cheapo:)
