One of the mysteries of fashion: when do you have to start to wear tights? If you’re under 30, I’d still say never…but if it’s under 40 degrees – that’s when to wear tights!

We’re lucky that it’s 2017 and tights are in style. Gone are the days of pantyhose. Tights come in tons of colors and patterns and they can be worn to work fashionably!

Month to start wearing tights:

Once it hit mid-November, I decided to wear tights every day. I work in a business professional environment and I don’t think it’s appropriate to show leg during the winter months. If you work in a business-anything dress code, I’d stick to keeping your legs warm and invest in a variety.

My favorite tights can be paired with multiple outfits. I find myself wearing these and these black patterned tights and these navy tights regularly.

What to wear tights with:

I pair tights with both skirts and dresses – even knee-length dresses. I would even throw a plain pair under OTK boots with a dress so that no leg is showing.

What are your rules for when to wear tights? Living in Nebraska weather, I stick to mine year-after-year.
