Does anyone still wear black tights...

Started 1355023294.97 in Fashion Talk | Last reply 1355380163.34 by minismom

with knee length black skirt and black flats? I just got some cute new black flats and can't stand to wear shoes without some sort of sock/stocking. Are pantyhose are still out of date? I usually wear pants, but sometimes I just want something different.

I have several pair, have recently bought some with great texture and designs too. Fun Fun! That is all I wear in the winter months.

That sounds like a timeless, classic look to me.

Cleo, yes I do!! I wear calf length skirts and I have always worn black tights. I have been doing this for 20 years! I used to love those silky tights by L'eggs. But I have a hard time finding them. Since I have had severe arthritis in my feet, and I need fusion and other surgery, I don't wear my cute shoes. I can't wear heeled boots or any shoe with a heel. So I have pretty much worn pants the last 2 years in winter. Haven't had too much opportunity to wear the tights.

I definitely do. My niece too. She is 19 and very fashionable.

I wear black tights at least once a week. Sounds like they will be perfect with your outfit.

Sure, I wear tights all the time, black, grey, and colors. Sometimes I even wear two pairs b/c it's cold where I work.

I only wear black tights between Labor Day and Memorial Day - except in dance class. But, from Labor Day to Memorial Day, if it's cold and I'm wearing a skirt, yep.

I wear black tights all winter and into the Spring. I have other colors as well. I have black, brown wine, winter white and some with designs. I love tights!

I just wore that look this past week. It's everywhere near me (Philadelphia area).

I always wear black tights, black sheer hose, or nude hose with flats or heels. I never bought in to that bare leg look .

I wear them with a shorter skirt too; I wear trouser sox when I get away with it - pants or longer skirt.

I too wear black tights in the cooler weather.

Love black tights! It is a timeless look no matter what your age.

I know I'm in the minority, but I have always hated tights. I guess black ones would be ok, but I can't stand the colored ones or the ones with patterns lol. If I have to wear that sort of thing, I prefer the look of sheer black hose.
