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!

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
