Tights with Everything: Part 2

Tights with Everything: Part 2As a self-professed tights-lover, I'm excited to try new ways to wear tights. They work with almost anything (note: don't wear them with tops that hit below your hips--they aren't pants!), show off your legs during colder months and can dress up a simple outfit. Here are a few more ways to wear your tights!

SHOPPING: Who doesn't love spending a day (and possibly the entire contents of your wallet) out at the mall? It's so much fun getting together with a few friends and hitting the stores--the best part is they can be your personal fashion assistant and tell you what looks great on you! You want to look super-chic but you don't want to wear something too complicated, so you can easily slip into and out of stuff in the dressing room. Try a cute Fair Isle sweater (perfect for the holiday season, especially Black Friday shopping) over some cozy white tights and some sparkly flats. Try: AE Light & Lofty Fair Isle Long Sweater (Maine navy, $54.95), AE Cozy Cable Knit Tights (cream, $12.50) and AE Sequin Ballet Flat (pewter, $29.50).

AIRPORT: You don't have to look sloppy when you travel this holiday season. Wear something unexpected--a slouchy cardigan over a plaid shirt (for added warmth in the cold plane) and a simple dress, paired with a scarf, tights (with a pop of color) and some boots that will add some height but are easy to slip on and off. Try: AE Boyfriend Cardigan (hood grey, $29.95), AE Plaid Poplin Shirt (orange, $29.95), AE Silky Sequin Dress (online only, grey, $44.50), AE Light & Lofty Scarf (light heather grey parchment, $24.50), AE Thermal Leggings (red, $24.50) and AE Suede Slouchy Boot ($69.50, taupe).

It's time to get your tights out of the drawer and try something new!


  1. tights are one of my favorite looks for winter! I just bought a really sparkly pair, that Im excited to bust out!


  2. I love tights that are a little unusual, like sparkly or have a really cool texture, it really mixes things up!
