Staying warm and stylish in the winter can sometimes be a tough feat for twenty-somethings, especially when dealing with as many layers as an abominable snowman and Mother Nature’s worst elements. While we may know to layer on the top half of our bodies, it’s not simply enough to have one layer on the bottom, no matter if you’re going to work or going out.
These tights are thin enough to layer under a pair of jeans or pants, yet stylish and thick enough to winterize summer dresses and skirts. They’re worth the investment, as it’s better to have a well-built pair that’ll last longer than a cheaper pair that’ll snag within the second wear.
