To say that I often wear black tights during the colder months would be an understatement. I wear them almost every day (when I’m not wearing my J.Crew Martie pant—more on that later). I used to wear tights in different colors when I was younger, but then I became partial to navy and black. I still wear my navy tights occasionally, but the black ones definitely get more use. To the girls who go out in winter with bare legs, écoute bien. Being cold isn’t becoming.
Once you determine which brand of tights suits you, you’ll have to figure out how to style them according to your body shape. For me, black tights pair well with above-the-knee woolen skirts and booties. I often wear these three items in black along with a top in a dissimilar color. I also like to wear black from head to toe with a skirt in a hue that stands out.
