Are you someone who wears the same 7 skirt/dress and tights combinations through the winter because of your limited scope of outfits that keep you warm? We at MyTights love finding innovative ways to wear our favourite tights, especially when it inspires us to change up our bland, everyday winter wardrobes. Through much internet browsing (and Pinterest hunting) I have compiled the perfect list of ways to change up your boring opaques-skirt combination and try some daring new outfit ideas.
- Lace/Patterned Tights + Ripped Jeans > This look has been all over the ‘Pinterest-sphere’ as a new, updated way to wear ripped jeans without looking like a slob. To achieve this look, simply wear your favourite pair of lace tights or patterned tights under your ripped jeans. Some of my favourite tights to pair with this look are the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Lace Tights, Trasparenze Sitar Tights, and Jonathan Aston Katusha Tights.
- Tights + Shorts > Dig up your shorts out of the bottom of your closets, ladies! Many Bloggers and Celebs alike have been using this trend to keep their summer wardrobe lasting through the cold winter months. Denim or printed, any shorts may be used for this trend. Plus, literally any pair of tights you may have lying around can be used. Pair some opaque tights with your printed shorts to channel your inner fashionista, or go for the causal denim shorts look with any pair of tights you desire.
- Tights as Pants > Okay, okay I know this is a hard NO in the moral fashion world… but hear me out. I’m not asking you to go literal with this trend and have your bottom fully exposed à la Rihanna or Lady Gaga. Pair a large, oversized t-shirt or flannel (that covers your bottom, of course!) with a thick pair of opaque tights. This look is both comfortable and when accessorized correctly, looks fabulous as well. Looking fabulous AND comfortable is never as easy thing to achieve… so try this look out! I promise the general public will not judge your ‘tights as pants’ choice.
- Over The Knee Socks > Please tell me I am not the only person obsessed with this look! Thigh high socks are back in trend, and they’re here to hopefully stay. Pair these socks with anything you’d usually wear tights with – dresses, shorts. skirts- and you will understand the obsession. This look may not keep you as warm as tights do (disclaimer), but the little bit of exposed skin is very much worth the updated look. Plus! If you get cold, layer a pair of sheer tights underneath your socks for that little bit of added warmth… it looks just as wonderful.
So throw out your usual rotation of winter outfits and change things up with these new, and different outfit ideas.
