Although it may be difficult to tell due to the constant shift of temperatures from “Indian summer” to absolutely freezing, the start of the holiday season means one thing for certain – it’s time to break out the tights! While I’ll always savor the feeling of freedom experienced by walking down avenues and side streets bare legged, the holiday season provides great opportunities for texture and layering, especially on your legs. Read on to find out some of our top styles of tights and stockings that will add a little extra pizzazz to your outfits:
Comprised of the clean lines and retro vibes, the suspender tights are sexy and functional. Pair them with a mini skirt or flirty dress for just the right amount of ‘naughty.’

Who wants to always where the same black or nude tights? Once in a while, it feels good to go bold. Reach for a pair of solid, color stockings to give the dark themes of fall some pop.
