Remix: Black Opaque Tights

I’ve been a huge fan of pantyhose tights for a very long time, since way before I started this blog (which is almost ten years ago!!) My mom always made my sisters and I wear them as kids. I know some people aren’t huge fans (they definitely can feel like they make your body into one big sausage sometimes) but I find that they can add a great element to your outfit – they can elongate the lines of your body, especially black tights, but fun tights always add whimsy to a colorful outfit! What’s not to love? I for one also love the gut support, hah! My personal favorites are DKNY opaque tights. Now, if I could only find some that never run at the toes, I would be in heaven!

In this remix post, I want to stick to showcasing black tights. Per usual with these remix posts, click on the image to see the original post.

Black with bright pops of colorful stripes.

This is a dress I can basically only wear with tights! It’s a heavy dress that’s only for cooler weather, so I’d definitely not be wearing it during warm weather. It makes me feel like a prim Mad Men extra.

Black tights with this black mesh skirt are always a good combination!

See! Same skirt. Wearing it with a shirt I made (gotta dig that top out of the bottom of the drawer soon!)

I want to wear this skirt more, but the velvet is kinda weird? (at least on me)

I’ve been wearing this same outfit for the last few years since I’ve had this dress! Dress and tights stay the same, boots change.

I bought these damn Emma Cook boots for an incredible steal on Ebay and they are the MOST painful shoes I’ve ever worn. I loved this outfit, still have all the pieces. But gosh, those damn stupid shoes!

I felt like this was my 50’s gal cosplay! The dress is long gone now, I sold it recently because it shrunk to Lolita sizing that didn’t work for me anymore.

This is just a tiny drop in the bucket to all my hosiery obsessed outfits!
