3 Ways To Wear Tights in Winter

When temperatures dip low, it’s so easy to seep deep into a style rut: jeans, sweaters, boots, repeat. To shake up your winter wardrobe—and get more mileage out of your dresses & skirts—try tights! They come in a million different colors, patterns & textures to play with, so your closet is instantly renewed. Plus, certain tricks (including shoe choice) make your legs appear even longer.

Warm Tights + Winter White

Wearing tights & skirts in winter can actually be quite comfy & casual. Just replace your favorite jeans with a cozy winter-white skirt & super-thick tights (they should be almost sock-like!). Then, pair with knee-high boots, a puffy vest & your go-to denim shirt. Trust us, even without pants, you’ll be snug as a bug.


Tights + Same-Toned Shoes

On a grey day, brighten up your outfit. Reach for jewel-toned tights—like berry, emerald or navy—with a textured wool or cotton dress with long sleeves. The heavy weight of the fabric & seasonal texture play nicely with an opaque tight. Try a pair of booties or pump in a similar color palette; it’ll give you the illusion of longer leg (bonus!).


Textured Tights + Layers

Even textured tights with a bit of transparency can be cold-weather players. Simply wear them with warmer layers and heavier fabrics, like wool & knit. Add textured tights to an LBD for a night out, or use them to give a casual outfit some sophistication (try a black pair—they’re the most versatile. Booties, a bright skirt & a long, draped sweater make this look fast and fashionable.
