It’s starting to feel like Fall, and it’s a great time of year because women can start covering their legs. One great way to do that is building a wardrobe of tights– Debbie loves microfiber tights– a comfortable, season-appropriate and stylish accent to your wardrobe.
Basic black is always a good color to own for tights, but be sure to look for colors this season as well. Burgundy, plum, charcoal grey are all wonderful neutrals to wear with pattern skirts or dresses.
The “drug store” tights and trousers don’t have the quality and don’t stand up. if you put on a pair that’s not well made, they can ruin the way you feel for for the entire day. There is a line of tights called Legacy that is really high quality and affordable.
Of course, Damon wanted to know– does one wear underwear along with tights? Tights tend to have a built-in undergarment, so whether you wear another pair is a personal preference. Some women are more comfortable layering, while others think the less bulk, the better. Just FYI.
Another fun alternative are these knee-high sock that look great with skirts, dresses or wide-leg pants. They are available in a variety of colors and textures, so have some fun accentuating your wardrobe!
Match the Bottom
It always looks best if you tights match the bottom, so be sure your pants or skirt and your tights are the same color. You can break up colors, too, and have some fun, but matching colors does look the best.
You can have a lot of fun with dress socks! There’s so many cool, funky and fun designs available for men and women, and Debbie found a website called Mitscoots.com that has a great variety. Their motto is “Get, Give and Employ,” so for every great pair of socks you buy, they give a pair away, and employ those who are less fortunate in their company. It’s a very philanthropic fashion company, which is a pretty easy thing to support!
