Fall 2006 Must Have - Opaque Tights

I saw it on the ready-to-wear runways first, and now I see it in every fashion magazine...if you're looking for something simple and affordable to make your wardrobe fall 2006 ready, just go out and get a couple pairs of opaque tights. If you want to play it safe, just go with black but if you're wanting to play with the look, try dark brown or dark gray opaque tights. If you really want to try something new, get some tights with lacy or patterned details with lots of texture.

As seen on the runways...

Carolina Herrera

Derek Lam

Salvatore Ferragamo

Love it... I have some in my drawer, for a just in case occasion...Love the way its being used on the runway. I will need to replicate.

AnastasiaC, ribbed tights are going to be the next pair I get!

Haute Girl, agreed. Even though I didn't wear them much when I was younger...never have been a fan of hose, but at least they'll keep my legs warm this winter!

EnidP, smart girl! Way to be prepared!

I had this last winter! I'm too chicken to wear a skirt when it's cold, though, no matter what. Perhaps early Fall!

why not wear them in winter? too cold? i don't know where you are, but i'm in the south, so it doesn't get tooooooo terribly cold down here.
