I love love love colorful tights for winter! They can be worn with long/short or flowy/tight skirts and dresses. My favorite is to get a rockin pair of stockings and match them with a tight skirt, an oversized vintage sweater, and boots. You can get tights/stockings in a ton of different styles like: opaque, thigh-highs, sweater-tights, nylon stockings, and I love tights with detailed and funky see-through patterns. One of my favorite brand of stockings is Gerbe! I think their new style Sublime is major and it comes in black (Noir), burnt orange (Rousse), and raspberry (Pinkissime) is my favorite. Birdies, in downtown KC now carries Gerbe stockings! Here is another post from “the diary of Louise LeMans” about the Gerbe tights at Birdies. Check it out!
