Who What Wear!

Life is more fun in tights! For the last month I've been sporting some pretty wild colored tights. Anything from bright yellow, to purple, to orange. While I may get some funny stares, I just don't care. They're fun, they're sassy, and they're so me!!!

For those of you looking for an excuse to sport this fabulous fashion trend (which I'm sure I'll regret ten years from now when I look back at pictures and scream "What the heck was I thinking!) here are a few great reasons:

1. Tights are fun, fabulous, and flirty!
2. It's a cheap way to spice up an old outfit.
3. They keep you warm when it's cold outside.
4. You don't have to shave your legs if you don't want to!!!

And something else fun I've been doing is layering them. Start with a darker, more opaque color on the bottom, like a pink or mauve, and layer it with a pair of fishnets. It tones down the brightness and creates a unique, more dramatic look. Or try a yellow opaque pair layered under sheer purple patterned tights. Sounds crazy, but the combo looks fantastic!

So go ahead. Buy some colorful tights. Bring some color into that boring fall wardrobe. Don't be afraid. It's fun!
