Tights, Tights, & More Tights

Sundresses may get all the attention, but we think tights are the ultimate springtime staple. Comfy and versatile, tights help you transition out of winter wares and into those summer pieces you can’t resist wearing for one more day. Pop some tights on under your favorite fluttery dress (or overalls, like Shannon’s wearing), buckle on some closed-toed shoes, and you’ve got an ensemble that satisfies your spring fever and accommodates the unpredictable little cold snaps that come with any spring day. Plus, with so many colors and patterns, tights are an easy way to infuse instant personality into any look!

Brighten Things Up

The sun’s out. Flowers are beginning to bud. The blue sky is coming back. Spring is when the world’s palette comes out to play — shouldn’t you join the fun? Try focusing on one piece of your outfit at a time, and swap muted shades out for something bolder. For instance, maybe you’ll switch your go-to burgundy top out for something in a snazzy citrus hue. Maybe you’ll like it so much, you’ll want to add in even more! Look for pieces that incorporate color in unexpected ways — embellishments in shoes, patterns in jackets, or even stitching on jeans.

What Shannon’s wearing:
Glowing All Out Tunic, Living the Dream Skirt in Grey, Top of the Tower Necklace, Whoa and Behold Heel, Duck, Duck, Umbrella in Yellow

All That Flutters

When searching for spring styles, focus on fabrics. Trade heavy knits for cotton blends, linens, and other lightweight materials, which look and feel fluttery and fresh. Such dreamy, breathable styles will help you keep your cool well into summer. And because they’re so luxuriously light, they’re perfect for layering. Top a breezy frock with a cardigan or wear it over a chambray blouse, and you’ll be feeling stylish, not stuffy.

    Love this post! I was just talking about how I need to get more leggings/tights to just wear under all my shorts and dresses. You can bring so much color to an outfit just by wearing color tights! Being a hairdresser I am so used to wear black and greys that I will tend to pick those colors up even when I’m shopping for day off clothes. I’ll catch myself and say hey, you need bright color you deserve to look bright and sunny haha! Thanks for sharing!!

      Thank you so much for sharing, Keely! 🙂 We definitely agree that every gal deserves to look and feel bright and sunny, and it’s so great to hear that you are able to catch yourself before you end up with a completely black and grey wardrobe. Here at ModCloth, we LOVE to embrace color in every way possible. You could totally pair cute colored tights with any black/grey shorts or dresses you may wear to the salon or on your days off. How fun would it be to pair bright tights like the Layer It On Tights in Teal with a pair of grey shorts? So much fun!

      Keep on staying bright and sunny, Keely! xoxo
