Today is your lucky day! You get to see not one, not two, BUT three, outfit photos. You get to learn three ways to wear tights. And since it’s the start of the holiday/gifting/giving/being thankful season (and I am oh so thankful for you!), I have a giveaway to give to you. Who knew a Monday could be such a good day?!
Once the cold officially sets in, I practically live in leggings and tights. Without them my winter wardrobe would be a hot mess (or maybe I should say a cold mess??) and I would be one frozen little lady. While I typically layer tights under skirts and dresses, that’s certainly not the only way I like to wear them. I love wearing a pair with a chunky oversized sweater, and throwing some on under jeans or pants has definitely saved my legs from getting frostbite a time or two (Hello, December football games!). Here are three other ways I like to rock a pair of tights-
Knee High Tights + A Dress
American Apparel Hat // Zara Dress // Donna Karan Sweater (thrifted) // Kushyfoot Fleece Trouser Socks c/o // Target Booties // Phillip Lim x Target Bag // Invicta Watch // Revlon “Ravish Me Red” Lipstick
I love wearing dresses all year round (yup, I’m that crazy girl wearing a dress in 10 degree weather!). But sometimes I just don’t feel like wearing full tights (my legs probably wish I felt otherwise). These trouser socks are lined with soft fleece making them perfect enough to keep me warm, yet stylish, without having to don full tights. A win-win for me and my legs.
Fleece Tights + Shorts
Aeropostale Beanie (borrowed from the Mr.) // Forever 21 Shirt // DIY Jean Shorts // Kushyfoot Fleece Tights c/o // Target Booties // Phillip Lim x Target Bag // Nadine Coat (thrifted) // Revlon “Ravish Me Red” Lipstick
I’ve never been a fan of the shorts and tights look….until I wore shorts with these tights. Like the fleece trouser socks, these are soft on the inside and they sure do keep my legs cozy and warm. In fact, my legs were so warm, I almost forgot I was wearing shorts and thought I had pants on instead! If you choose to try the shorts and tights look, I recommend making sure all your other layers are also warm – a long sleeve shirt, a thick jacket, and a knit beanie to cap everything off.
Colored Tights + A Casual Outfit
Leather Baseball Hat // Phillip Lim x Target Sweatshirt // Thrifted Dress // Kushyfoot Microfiber Tights c/o // JustFab Booties // Chanel Bag // Revlon “Ravish Me Red” Lipstick
When I was younger I absolutely hated tights for the pure fact that tights signified getting dressed up and acting prim and proper (something my younger tomboy self didn’t want to ever do). These days I feel a lot differently about tights (as you’ve probably guessed from reading), but I’ve also learned tights don’t just mean you have to be dressed up. Using colored tights (like the Heather gray ones I’m wearing) is a great way to make an outfit look more casual. Sweatshirt + tights? I think even my old tomboy self would approve! P.S. These tights have an awesome massaging sole that makes them even more comfortable to wear!
And now, the reason you suffered through an insufferable amount of outfit photos…the giveaway. Kushyfoot has graciously offered to giveaway enough tights to keep your legs warm all winter long. And by enough tights, I mean everything pictured below (1 pair of black fleece lined tights, 1 pair of black fleece trouser socks, 1 pair of Heather microfiber tights, 1 pair of black shaping tights, 1 pair of microfiber crew socks [black], 1 pair of microfiber crew socks [nude], 1 package of knee high opaque tights [1 solid black, 1 fishnet]).
