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'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...

I don't know. It honestly could be that she likes you, or she is just a really good friend.
