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!

I have my earlobe pierced, and I'm considering getting a piercing elsewhere on my ear. I'm thinking my outer conch at the moment.  Do you have ear piercings? Where? What looks good to you? Any advice?
