Tights are winter’s hero. I firmly believe that. I use tights to wear my favorite skirts and dresses all winter long instead of having to reserve them for specific seasons. They keep me from caving to the boring world of trousers every day for work. At the start of each season, I buy a couple nice pairs of black tights. I need an extra for the last-minute-rushing-out-of-the-door-snag situation. If you can keep one pair nice all season, just don’t tell me. I recently got to try the L’eggs Energy Tights. They’ll now be my forever friend for the control top (hello holiday parties) and graduated compression. They also have a wide waist band, so none of those awkward rolling down moments occur. I also appreciate the quality is higher than the price (only $5-$7). I’ve definitely spent more than that on my quest for a good pair. (Be sure to get the Energy Tight not the Sheer Energy unless you are looking for more of a hose than tight.) I plan on wearing this look to an upcoming holiday party. This plaid skirt is only $15 and feels so festive!
