I wore this outfit to a Christmas Fashion Show a few weeks ago on one of the few cool December days we get here in Florida. I admit the temperatures do not have to dip too low for me to break out my tights! I look forward to it every year. It is a simple way to turn an otherwise boring outfit into something that feels and looks sassy!
The black opaque tight has been a wardrobe staple since the 1960’s, when minidresses and Edie Sedgwick became popular. They are the perfect accessory making your legs look longer and slimmer! I wear them with shorts, skirts and dresses. If you are looking to dress up a more casual look, choose an open weave like fishnets or lace. In this case, I wanted to add color to my ensemble of black and grey. Sweater tights are another great choice. I like to wear them with a short skirt or bodycon dress, helping to soften the look and make it more age appropriate.
Have a stylish day!
