There are days right now when the weather is really pushing you to wrap up tight and stay warm. Jeans and pants are on high rotation – great news for personal grooming – not so great for all your gorgeous skirts and dresses going to waste sitting in your wardrobe waiting for Summer! Think about incorporating tights into your winter wardrobe to give you the option of wearing your favourite dresses and skirts all year round.
I’ve put together some handy tips and enlisted the help of some of my favourite Instagram ladies to show you how to wear tights and make them work for you!
Black on black is never basic. Tights and a midi length skirt or dress combined with some boots are a match made in heaven. Steal my style in the Kennedy’s Zip Dress (S-XXL), Frankie4 Izzy Boot and Sonsee opaque tights (14-28).
Tights don’t have to be opaque. Add some night time mystery with a fishnet or patterned tight like the glamorous One Cool Mother. Steal Kate’s style with these Pretty Polly Pin Spot tights from ASOS (18-26) and her Frankie4 Izzy boots.
A black opaque should be your go to tight. Team them an interesting hemline or a bright patterned dress like the always colourful Style and Shenanigans to make your outfit the star of the show. Steal Vanessa’s style with these SALLi boots from Frankie4 and team them with black opaque tights from City Chic (S-L).
Create layers. A coat, a wrap dress, a long sleeve top underneath and tights adds interest to an everyday outfit and keeps Almost Posh and her mini Me totally warm and stylish. These Razzamatazz Opaque tights from Curvy (18-24) will keep you toasty just like Beth.
Don’t be afraid to contrast with an on trend white boot or bold coloured dress and black tights. Soozies Style shows us how it’s done. You can steal her style with this Anouk Dress from Adrift (S-2XL) and some City Chic tights (S-L).
Coloured tights can totally be cool. Rock absolutely any colour tights you can imagine – be inspired by Kimba Likes by shopping here at We Love Colors.
Make like Malinda and wear a mid length dress and an ankle boot to let your tights just peek through the two. You can shop fishnets like Malinda at ASOS with these Curve Fishnet Tights (18-24).
Footloose and fancy free, footless tights are perfect to show off just a little skin. Match with a sneaker like Katy Potaty or any flats like brogues or mules. Shop footless tights like Katy, here at Target (Avg-XTall) and add some metallic Jackie kicks from Frankie4.
I hope you’ve found some inspiration on how you might wear your tights this Winter with these stylish ladies. I’d love to hear how you wear yours!
