How to Choose the Perfect Tights
Sometimes women tend to forget the importance of tights into their wardrobe. They are not only cozy, but they play the important role of feminizing a woman’s silhouette. Moreover, if you want to add a touch of originality to your outfit, you can choose a pair of special tights with different prints and patterns or ones in a bright color that can spice up your look. One can find on the market a wide range of tights, from the classic ones in neutral colors to those specially made for bolder personalities who are not afraid to stand out with a pair of bright yellow tights.
If you are more into the classic fashion style, choose black for your tights whether we are talking about opaque or fine net, silky soft ones. Besides, a classic look requires to always match your tights with the color of your shoes and to the texture of the clothes you are wearing. A black pair of tights work great with almost everything and anything, especially if you have a gray skirt or dress and black shoes. In this context the best choice are the extra fine ones, as transparent as possible. For a party, if you choose a pair of transparent tights, stay away from sandals. For holidays or a more special event, try to go for nude tights that are close to your skin color as you can match them much easier.
On the other hand, the most daring types have the possibility to choose among a myriad of colors, lighter or darker, that allows you to play with shades and textures. A pair of bright tights can instantaneously dress up a dull, plain outfit. If you are wearing a little black dress, add some glamour, originality and fun to your outfit by choosing colored tights. Moreover, if you have a brown outfit, try a pair of orange tights to spice it up a little. Create youthful, yet stylish outfits using a pair of purple, red, yellow, navy blue or green tights. If you are not the colored type, go for one color that can be found among the tones into your wardrobe.
Just like in the case of other clothing items, tights follow the same rule when it comes to colors. Therefore, darker colors make your legs look thinner, while lighter colors or different prints can make them look thicker. This is why it is important to choose that pair that really flatters your silhouette. If you want to look slimmer, the best thing to do is to go for opaque matte tights without prints, but in one color.
Besides, if you have thicker legs, stay away from bright, neon colors as they only draw the attention towards them. Moreover, you should never wear tights with horizontal stripes if your legs are short and thick. If you still want to wear printed tights, choose those with smaller prints.
As for skinny girls, everything is allowed as long as you match them with style and don’t make a fashion no-no. In this case, choose tights based on your age, lifestyle and the clothes you are wearing in order to avoid a fashion disaster. For example, stay away from mixing tights with different prints and printed clothes as it might be too much. Besides, if you are over 35, it is not advisable to match diamond net tights with short skirts.
Whenever buying a pair of tights make sure they fit you, otherwise you’ll feel rather uncomfortable, especially if they are too tight. On the other hand, if they are a little bit larger, they can have an unaesthetic look as they create an unwanted wrinkling or just keep falling down, and this is not too elegant. Hand washing is by far the best way, or maybe the only way, advisable for washing your tights.
