Tights and Leggings

Tights and leggings have quickly become essential elements of the modern fashion wardrobe.   You frequently see them with skirts, tunic length tops, and dresses and they work perfectly with high boots, regular boots or even ballet slippers.  The look of an outfit with leggings or tights has become a fashion staple and is certainly something that you will want to consider when you think of great ways to incorporate this trend into your own wardrobe.

At Vintage Fringe, we currently sell leggings from Velvet by Graham and Spencer and have found them to be a great quality, fashionable legging.  You really do get what you pay for with leggings and what we love is the fabric and fit quality with the Swoozie Legging by Velvet.  These leggings are part of Velvet’s baby jersey collection so they are very soft and comfortable to wear.  Currently available at Vintage Fringe in great basic colors like Black and Grey, these leggings are long and work perfectly with boots.

When you are looking for the perfect pair of leggings you will want to be sure and consider both long and cropped leggings.  We love them both with different styles of outfits.  Cropped leggings are perfect for warmer weather and look adorable with ballet flats. Especially cute under shorter dresses, these leggings are great staple leggings that you will want to have in a few basic colors.

Tights are great accessories too, but personally I prefer leggings because they last longer.  Inevitably, I snag the tights or get a run in them, so when I have the option I prefer leggings.  You may also want to consider Spanx which has tights with panty hose like features like control tops.

When you are shopping for leggings, you will want to be sure and get a few pairs in staple colors.  Of course you will want a pair of leggings in black.  You cannot go wrong with black and just like any other fashion piece you will always default to the basic black.  My second choice for getting into leggings is either a grey or brown.  Both are colors that accessorize well with all sorts of other colors.  Grey pairs wonderfully with purples, reds and blues and of course works well with blacks.  I love the look of grey leggings with a black dress and black boots.   A good basic brown works perfectly with warmer colors like taupe, other shades of brown, pinks, whites, and some red or blue shades.  Once you have covered the basic colors, then we suggest adding other splurge colors like navy or purple that may not go with everything you have, but fits exactly with that one outfit.

As you can see, we have really come to embrace the tights and leggings trend and think that it really is a trend that is here to stay.  The distinctive look of adding leggings or tights to an outfit is a look that we have really come to love and think you will find that leggings are a great comfortable way to incorporate a little added edge into your wardrobe.
