Make It Work: Leggings And Tights

Fun to wear, comfortable and becoming more stylish, leggings are destined to become an essential part of a cool weather wardrobe.

We’ll assume the fashionable ladies know the difference, but for the others: Tights are thin (even sheer), typically have a toe, and nearly always need to be wore under a skirt, dress, shorts, etc. Leggings are typically thicker fabric (not see-through!), don’t have an enclosed foot/toe, and can be worn on their own like pants.

And they both come in a wide, ever-expanding variety of styles.


Mix and match stripes with other patterns to create your signature look.
