Tights are often an essential outfit accessory, regardless of style or occasion – and can even function as an outfit centerpiece. Most obviously in recent fashion, both tights and leggings of all kinds have seen an extreme rise in popularity. This is most likely due to their slimming/smoothing qualities, total comfort and ability to jam with practically anything.
Approaching the springtime months of April and May (and for some more southern locations, late March), the weather often starts to warm on up. Taking dogs on walks and going out for the mail becomes much more endurable – or dare I say it? – even enjoyable. However, the transition between winter and spring is for the most part gradual, and there can still be plenty of chilly nights or daytime winds. Because of this, tights become an extremely viable option for jumping into the spring dress earlier, but retaining some much-needed warmth.
Here I’d like to talk about two basic tight prints that currently seem to dominate the trend-o-sphere, and in addition mention possible dress-types for pairing purposes.
