How to wear tights

Tights are one of my wear everywhere pieces that can be used for any season. Wearing tights is an affordable simply way to transform an outfit. Tights can be paired with a cute shirt dress, skirts, and tunics. Also, tights are a super easy and comfortable piece to throw on; instead of trying to squeeze your legs and thighs into some skinny jeans. Tights come in many different colors, styles, prints, and fabrics, but every girl should start out with the basics. I would recommend starting out with basic colors such as black, grey, and brown. I always opt to keep it simple with full covered foot tights or footless tights. My number one rule with wearing tights is to ALWAYS cover your backside and front. Keep in mind that tights are not jeans and you do not want to over expose private areas. Below I will show you how I took one outfit and paired it with three different styles of tights.

1. Basic Black footless Tights

The basic black footless tights are a versatile piece to own because it can transition through a few seasons such as fall, spring, and winter. I paired these tights with a pair of suede wedge heels from Bakers, but they also can be paired with sandals, riding boots, or pumps.

2. Grey Full Covered Foot Tights

The full covered foot tight is appropriate to use for the colder season and when you want to look a little more formal (i.e. work, events). During the winter season I like to go with the full covered foot tights because the material is thicker and keeps my legs and feet warm.

3. Full Covered Maroon textured Tights

Once you have mastered the basic tights you may want to venture off and play with color and textures. I decided to keep the color of my tights in the same color family as my top. I have paired the maroon colored tights with my favorite pair of Lucky riding boots.
