Winter accessories, part three! We covered scarves. And we covered coats. But, we cannot forget about another important winter accessory – tights!
Tights seemed to disappear for a while…. But we are seeing them everywhere this year!! And we are not sad about it! For those that are not fans of the cold, tights will certainly help your winter wardrobe. Tights not only keep your legs warm. They also have the added benefit of giving them an elongated and sleek look when paired with the proper shoes. We suggest choosing shoes in the same color as your tights to give the illusion that you have long legs. Our favorite shoes for tights are boots and booties with a heel – but note that the heel doesn’t have to be super high to be effective! Ladies, pull those tights back out and utilize your faux leather shorts and shorter skirts and dresses through the rest of the Winter season.
Winter Styling Tips | Our Favorite Black Tights
Spanx are of course our favorite black tights. Sure, you are going to pay a little more for them. But, they last for years. In fact, several of us have pulled our five year old Spanx tights out from the back of the closet, where they took their brief hiatus. Spanx’s Tight End Tight has a built in mid-thigh shaper to firm your rear and thighs, which is a fabulous added benefit!
Spanx’s Tummy Shaping Tights have extra support around the tummy and no mid-thigh shaper, making them perfect for those looking for a little pull-in around the waist, OR for your shorter hemlines.

We love the idea of a bolder patterned tight under a great pair of distressed black denim…. How fabulous would this fishnet tight be peeking out from the distressing on the leg of this black denim?

[…] Because it’s the end of winter, and spring is just around the corner, this can be a bit of a tricky time of year to dress for evenings out. We are all ready to start re-introducing our spring pieces… But it can still be pretty darn cold outside. Because the weather can still be quite chilly, especially at night, consider wearing a jacket or blazer over your look for added warmth, color, and texture. And don’t forget, if you choose a dress or skirt, you can always add tights for coverage on your legs. For tips on wearing tights, check out our recent blog post. […]
