Tights are the perfect outfit completer. They’re subtle, versatile, comfortable, and immediately make every outfit look put together. Wearing tights instantly adds a streamlined finish to your outfit. You can effortlessly incorporate them into almost any look no matter if it’s formal, casual, professional, or somewhere in the middle. Plus, they’re perfect for in-between season weather because they keep your legs warm when it’s chilly without feeling suffocating if the weather heats up.
If you don’t already at least three pairs of black tights somewhere in the back of your closet or the bottom of your dresser drawer, it’s time to go shopping. Tights are both trendy and convenient; they’re much too valuable of a wardrobe staple to pass up. Whether you’ve never considered wearing tights with anything other than a ballet leotard or you’re looking for some ways to spice up your options for outfits that include tights, look no further. Incorporating tights into your outfits for almost any occasion requires nothing more than a bit of creativity.
1. Pick a Pattern
Although black tights are a wardrobe staple, you don’t always have to go for plain black when you wear tights. You can find a wide variety of different patterns of tights that can upgrade the neutral essential when you’re looking to add a little more interest to your outfit.
When you choose to wear patterned tights, let them be the focal point of your look. Keep the rest of your clothing relatively neutral and don’t try to blend other patterns into your outfit. If you choose a bright solid color for your tights, make sure you tie it into the rest of your outfit by matching the color of your tights to a color in the pattern of another piece you wear. Avoid mixing multiple bright solid colors in different pieces of your look to steer clear of a crowded, costume-y finish.
