I feel like we’re getting to that age where your bare legs start to look weird. Does anyone else notice this? Like all of a sudden our knees are a little saggy, and our shins bruise for seemingly no reason. As more and more maxi dresses make their way into my closet during the summer, when that crisp fall air blows through Chicago with the promise of a never-ending winter, I can’t wait to hike up the hem and throw on a pair of tights.
Tights totally make the fall and winter outfit. And we’re not talking about pulling out those standard black opaque puppies because they have great control tops and hide your weird knees. We’re talking about using tights as the fun accessory that brightens up your cozy winter neutrals.
Last winter, we were both pregnant and majorly bumming the loss of tights season. Trust me, maternity tights are not nearly as cute as regular tights, so we basically lived in the same pair [yes, we purchased identical maternity tights] of black and grey tights all the winter long. As Erinn lamented with such endearing earnestness: “I don’t even know what’s new with tights anymore!”
So we’re using this fall to bring back some of our old favorites and add some spice to our holidays and work attire.
