Tights - this typically female item of clothing - has its ... male roots! Today, tights are one of the dominant feminine elegance. How to wear them on cold days?
Yes, it's true! One hundred years ago, tights were reserved for men only. They came to the women's wardrobe only at the end of the 19th century. Time has made many changes in both the tights and the fabrics they are made of.
We are particularly happy to reach for tights on cold days. In autumn and winter, they not only protect us against low temperatures but can also be an important element of the overall stylization. When choosing tights, it's worth following a few guidelines. First of all: the colour. Dark tights make you slimmer and lengthen your figure. While in the spring we can afford a lot of designs, for warmer and thicker clothes we choose smooth pantyhose. On cold days, tights can harmonize well or, on the contrary, contrast with the rest of the outfit. And yes, a dark or grey skirt will be great with both black and red tights. Colour courage is therefore advisable here!
Second: thickness. In autumn and winter, we often reach for thicker tights. It is not worth to save here, because thicker tights will serve us for many months or even years. In turn, it is worth paying attention to the risk of wrinkles around the shoes and the presence (and visibility) of the seams. Thick tights (for example 30 DEN) will not only provide thermal comfort but also cover up any imperfections. Therefore, if for aesthetic reasons you do not feel comfortable in spring tights, it is worth giving them a chance right now.
Thick, matte tights can be elegant. Choose for them high heels, shoes or boots, and add a whole stylization of chic, elegance and airiness, which is quite difficult in autumn and winter.
