It’s funny, at the first sign of cold this winter at the Studio, we all got out our black tights and started wearing skirts, shorts, and a lot of super short things. I started wearing my thigh-high boots and, anyway, it was like tights had suddenly liberated our legs.
It’s probably because they just need to be slightly opaque for you to feel covered, kind of like wearing leggings. It’s also maybe because it feels a little cleaner, safer – I don’t know if you remember my adventures with mini skirts but, honestly, I won’t even risk wearing them in the city anymore. I have to admit, tights are kind of a good cover. You don’t have to have perfectly landscaped legs – you can still wear skirts, shorts, and short dresses without overthinking your wax or tan.
Anyway, tights are kind of a winter bonus (there has to be at least one good thing about winter, right?). I even bought some polka dot tights recently that everyone went crazy over. Apparently (I have no idea why) it’s super sexy.
Are you like me? Is it a lot easier for you to wear short skirts and shorts in the winter because of tights?
