Now that the holiday season is fully upon us, the temperatures have continued to drop all over the country—and the desire to show our legs has gone down right along with them. Yet it seems sad to hide our stems from sight for so many months out of the year, shielding them behind trousers, long-hemmed dresses and full-length skirts.
The best way to show at least a little bit of leg during the winter months is to put together looks that incorporate tights. From classic styles like sheer black and fishnet to more statement-making ones that feature colours and prints, tights can add a lot to your look while keeping your legs (fairly) warm.
Keep scrolling for five chic looks that will inspire you to let those limbs breathe a little…
Style Notes: Classic black sheer tights always look so ladylike; they instantly dress up this look with a pleated skirt and comfy sweater.
Style Notes: Opt for a chunky, glittery patterned tight like Brie Welch for those days when it's really cold, but you want to add a touch of sparkle.
Style Notes: You can't go wrong with a pair of black tights under a dress! Throw on a leather jacket and you have a great way to take your favourite spring dress to winter.
Style Notes: Fishnets are probably best saved for days when your interaction with the chilly air is kept to a minimum, but if you're feeling brave, we love them styled with a black leather skirt, a mock turtleneck sweater, and classic Dr. Marten boots!
Style Notes: A pair of sheer or light-coloured tights is a fun way to offset an otherwise mostly black look. If you're feeling the leather vibes this season, tone it down with a pair like this.
