Textured Tights and How to Wear Them

It’s all about tights! Textured and patterned tights are all the rage this winter - there’s so much more to than basic black! This season tights come in a wide range of textures, fabrics, colors and prints - making it super easy to spice up your winter outfits! We usually reach for basic black tights for a reason though, it’s quick, easy and it goes with absolutely everything. But how can we resist all the fun tights out there at the moment? The answer is we don’t! Even though some of the tights look a bit crazy (animal print?!), they’re not as hard to wear as you might think! It’s a fun an easy way to style up your wardrobe with something a bit different. Adding textured, colored or patterned tights is also an inexpensive way to accessorize and even make a simple black t-shirt dress look like something new! Check out our gallery on the coolest textured tights we could find and tips on how to wear them!


How to Wear Them!

Textured and patterned tights make a fashion statement all on their own so there’s no need to add too many accessories or additional prints to overload your outfit! The best rule to follow is to keep the rest of your outfit simple. Pair your textured tights with a plain dress and ankle boots, a pair of denim shorts and some sneakers or a long tunic sweater and some boots! You don’t even have to keep it totally simple - try a pair of denim shorts with patterned tights and a top in a pattern or print that is similar in color or tone. As long as you keep the patterns and prints in the same color family and intensity, it still works to mix and match. Try a pair of thick cable-knit tights to keep your legs warm and toasty or some heart patterned tights to add some quirkiness to your outfit of the day! Woolly tights are fun, we especially love the “Snow Bunny” tights we saw on ModCloth.com - they make your legs look like they’re wearing a sweater - super cute! The brighter the color or louder the print - the simpler you should try and keep your outfit. Try some polka dot tights under a denim skirt or pair your silver metallic glitter tights with a navy blue dress - we love this hot new trend!

She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting Oh dear, that sounds like a dreadful situation. I've lived through similar difficulties in my own life, and my heart goes out to you, truly. May I offer you some advice? I don't have the cure to your problems or a magic wand that can make them disappear, but I do believe that some good can come out of your living situation. The first thing I'd like to make note of, is that everyone makes mistakes. As human beings, we have to make mistakes. There's no way around it; it's how we learn and grow. And as we get older, we don't stop making mistakes. Your parents are no exception. Although we look to our parents for guidance, and direction, and support, we have to understand that they aren't perfect people, and they make mistakes. They may not always lead us in the right direction. They may not always set a good example. They may not always be there for us, to encourage us and support us when we need them most. And that's okay. Everyone makes mistakes, and we have to accept that. But we can't let allow other people's mistakes to hurt us, my dear. And I know it hurts. Your mum might not understand how her actions make you feel. You said you haven't been the same since your parents divorced, and I know how challenging that can be to go through. But you know, some of the brightest, wisest, and happiest people I've met, are people who have dealt with difficult problems in their lives, and used them to grow as people. You can let your parents' mistakes get to you, and make you upset and depressed; or, you can accept that they aren't perfect people, accept that they make mistakes, and accept that their mistakes don't have anything to do with you. So here's what you do, friend: you can't stop your mum from going clubbing, and that's okay. Don't try to. Don't fight with her about it. You can let her know how it makes you feel, but don't get into an argument. Accept the situation for what it is. Your mother is her own person, and she is accountable for what she does; you aren't. Next time you start to get in a fight or an argument with her, just step back, and withdraw yourself. Try it, see what happens. Once you decide not to let other peoples' failings affect you--and you do have the power to do this--then you'll find a sense of peace you probably haven't felt before. And you'll learn from your mistakes, and the mistakes of your parents, and everyone around you, and you'll be a better person. Press on.

my ex is going through the same thing. Call the police now. Things will get out of hand. My brothers friend has been living with us for about 2 weeks becuz his dad punched him in the face. Call 911 now. They will help you. Just say you have been abused by your family member and they will take it from there. If you want, add me and we can talk

If you are getting abused to the point where you bleed, call the police immediately. This isn't acceptable behavior.

Hey, Just wanted some advice to help me on what to do on this. Ever since I was 3 I've been both Verbally, Mentally, And Physically abused. To me, this is normal since it's been happening for so long. But I just can't take this thing anymore. When I get home I always get yelled at for no reason. I have been on Anti-Depressants for the past 1-2 years. Been going to counseling for 6-7 years for family. Nothing has changed yet. I just need help on how to handle this. Thanks.
