Haute Hosiery

Hosiery is a great way to punch up an outfit, whether it's with an unusual color, print, or texture.  Tights have really come into their own in the past couple years--there are so many more options to choose from.  They are the perfect way to breathe new life into your go-to black dress, or to take and outfit from day (solid opaque tights) to night (lacy sheers).  Plus, it is the rare trend that is accessible--tights are affordable and look great on everyone!

These leopard print tights are on trend, and still conservative enough to wear to work.

Gap tights, $14.50
Wolford tights, $65
Topshop tights, $20
These black and white showstoppers are not for the faint of heart.  They would look fantastic under a bold colored mini-dress.

Emilio Cavallini tights, $31.89
Eloise tights, $38
Hansel from Basel tights, $32
I love the strong architectural lines of these tights.  They can make an entire outfit--perfect for adding interest to a black dress and ankle boots.

ASOS leggings, $62.06
Topshop tights, $30
Topshop tights, $24
These Nordic Fair Isle prints are an affordable way to draw inspiration from D&G's fall collection.  They are begging to be paired with a chunky sweater dress and rugged ankle boots.

Need Supply Co. leggings, $38
Gap tights, $19.50
These Aztec print leggings are reminiscent of the print used in Mondo's final collection for Project Runway Season 8.  Paired with a tunic and flats, they would make a great weekend look.

For a holiday party, either shimmery or lacey tights are a must.

Hue tights, $18
Anna Sui tights, $20
Spanx tights, $28
 These are just sweet and girlie.  They would provide a nice contrast to fall's tough leather skirts.

  1. I love this post!! I own a pair of leopard tights
    that I got from Target. I am never on treand so I was excited to see this. I have never played with pattern and this year I am making it a goal.

    Thank you Maria :)
