As fall approach, the fashionable accessory on our minds is tights! Long, bare legs in nice in the summer… very bohemian. But when it’s cold out, tights are like a fashionable hug around your legs that is different from pants because the stretchiness and softness.

Tights were first worn by men… at least that’s what wikipedia states. They said that men needed a tight garment to ride horseback. So isn’t it interesting how so few men where tights now? And they are so beloved by many women.

Wether seen in old, vintage pictures of fashionable ladies or in modern retro ways, tights are the perfect accessory to the leg!
