Love It Or Leave It: J.Crew's Tights
Cass brought up an interesting topic in yesterday's "The Great (Weekly) Exchange" post, which is about the tights in color trend. Last year, black opaque tights were all the rage. However, tights in a variety of colors are making their way as part of the trend this Fall. (Click here to see Collegefashion.net's "Fall 2008 Fashion Trend: Tights" post that includes several images of models wearing color tights on the runway).
J.Crew has recognized this trend by currently offering the Solid opaque tights (Item 97788; $16.50) in a variety of colors (shown in the image above) like honey glaze and deep peacock.
I purchased a pair of black solid opaque tights from J.Crew last year (on sale) and really like them. The material was not only soft but very durable (e.g. resistant to tears) as well. Unfortunately, I don't wear the tights often enough. (I tend to gravitate towards pants during the Fall and Winter months.) I am also unsure if I would buy a pair in a honey glaze or deep peacock.
Do you like the tights trend? Would you wear tights in different colors this Fall season? How would you wear them? Would you purchase tights from J.Crew (or from another retailer)?
