Autumn tights

I am very much a skirt and tights girl. I rarely wear plain black tights, preferring colour, in lots of styles. I buy my tights from Tabio and Top Shop (the Top Shop own brand wear really well.) I'm not afraid of wearing bright colours, and this season I am going to seek out ribbed tights as my style of choice.

I've never really gone in for coloured tights (being rather chunky of calf), but a teal blue pair caught my eye recently and I bought them. Now I am just waiting for tights weather to arrive. We'll see how it goes.

I do so love them on other people.

I'm so feeling the bright tights this winter! Got teal and maroon, thinking purple and maybe something brighter. Maybe. I think you've got to have quite slim legs really to get away with it but then again I don't really care about that. :)

I love the tights in the second photo! I like tights and do wear them, but not often as my ankles are SO skinny it is not attractive! Really!

This is a post after my own heart! I ADORE tights! I just got some bright green ones from Target to add to my overflowing drawer of tights! I am totally a skirt and tights girl. Happy early autumn!

Ive only ever worn black or purple tights before.

But yesterday I saw a girl in Red tights similar to the 1st image, and it looked pretty good I have to say.

So this autumn I may be more daring.

I've never worn colored tights, but I think they are an accessory all to themselves that should definitely be shown loud and proud! Although I don't know if I'd have the guts to wear red ones! :}

these tights look so cozy, especially the middle ones. i've got some colored tights that i can't wait to break out once it gets cool enough.

I will definitely be sporting the bold colored tights with you this Fall! I LOVE a tight that turns heads.

I love skirts and tights too! Especially with cute heels or boots. =) I can't wait to start wearing them. I saw an adorable plaid pair in a Macy's flyer today.

Love the colored tights! I'm kinda glad these are in style now.

McLaura said...

Oooh, tights are totally what I am excited about fall for. Yesterday was the first really cool day in DC, so I broke out the tights and skirt and it made me so happy! :)I mostly just wear black or grey tights, but I think I'm going to be adventurous this fall and go for some colors as well.

I'm with you, I love fun tights that brighten up an otherwise drab day :)

its not really ideal to wear tights in my hot hot country that is malaysia, haha so i take every chance i get to wear every type of tights imaginable when im on holiday that has a colder climate! even in my hotel room :)

Ooooh - I just love tights too!! Our winter has just finished and I bought a great pair, black with purple flowers .... so stunning - but alas I'm in Queensland Australia and we had our hottest winter ever (more like summer), so I didn't get an opportunity to wear them. Sigh!!! Will save them for next year!
Cheers, Karen

I love love tights. I can't wait to start wearing them everyday again.
I especially love ribbed tights. I have them in white, purple, black and several shades of grey!
I love Tabio too - but what puts me off is their prices!? £20 for a pair of tights!? crazzzy.

Sainsburys have some nice ribbed reddish ones for just £6 ;-)
