“The Sing-Off” Group Teaches Us A Very Important Fashion Lesson

On last night’s episode of “The Sing-Off,” eight a cappella groups were narrowed down to six, and vocals-only versions of songs by artists from Queen to Aretha Franklin were performed. While the focus of the show is on the singing, I couldn’t help but notice the coordinating outfits the groups wore. Some, like all-girl grou…

Freezing Much?

We’re all about wearing thick wool tights to stay warm during the winter, but Kate Hudson looks like she could use a pair of ski pants walking around ice cold, super windy Manhattan today. [N.Y.C., 12/11/09]…

Are White Tights Ever A Do If You’re Not A Nurse?

We came across this photo of Gwen Stefani today. Usually, she can do no wrong in our style books, but we’re not too sure about these white tights. What do you think? [NYC, 9/12/09]…

Gray Tights Go With Gray Skies

We’re loving the continuous line of Reese Witherspoon’s gray tights (click to find a pair of your own) and shoes. She bucked the black tights trend while promoting her new Avon fragrance, “In Bloom,” on “Good Morning America.” [NYC, 10/28/09]…

Look Hot On Halloween Without Wearing A Sexy-Anything Costume

Not everyone enjoys dressing in costume for Halloween, but that doesn’t you need to be a total Debbie Downer and wear your normal clothes on Saturday, either. Jewelry of the spider, bat, or vampire varieties is the easiest way to acknowledge it’s Oct. 31 without donning a full-on costume.

If you’d like to…

Henry Holland’s At Topshop!

Run, do not walk to Topshop. Henry Holland — the British designer who is best friends with Agyness Deyn and the master behind the polka dot dress that a pregnant M.I.A wore to the Grammy Awards — collaborated with U.K. hosiery brand Pretty Polly to create a limited edition series of tights that non-supermodels and…

The Best Opaque Tights There Are

Opaque tights are a tricky beast; sometimes they’re too light, other times they rip really easily. And most of them have that obnoxious little elastic waistband that lends itself to endless fidgeting. But for those of us who wear skirts and dresses all winter long, they’re a necessary evil. Being a hater of regular pant…

Clothes Crush: Japanese Brand Blank

Say hello to Blank, a Japanese import. I’m so into these accessories I found while browsing the “new” section at, that I’m literally drawing a blank. Except for maybe an internal dialogue that goes like this: Cute. Cute! Cuuuuuuute. Loving the non-traditional prints of soldiers and dinosaurs on tights, another dinosaur design on a…

Dudes Can’t Wait To Get Their Legs In Mantyhose!

“This winter the city’s most stylish men will have a secret weapon hidden in their trousers.” No, no, no, get your mind out of the gutter, kids! That’s David Walker-Smith, the director of menswear and beauty of the famous London department store Selfridges, commenting on the fact that the huge (ha) new craze amongst British…

When Is It Cool (Enough) To Start Wearing Tights?

We have to take issue with September because, yes, it makes us all giddy for fall fashion, but it’s often still too hot to wear most of it. Sweaters, fine—you can layer and take them on and off. But it’s not like you can so easily slip your pantyhose off when you’re walking down the…

Quick Pic: Tights That Cost More Than Most Of Our Clothes

While flipping through the September/October issue of Manhattan magazine, we noticed a fashion spread with a model wearing what looks like the nonsensical Siwy see-through jeans. Upon closer inspection, however, we discovered they are, in fact, Jean Paul Gaultier fishnet panel tights, and they retail at Bergdorf Goodman for a mere $135. Can you imagine…

Quick Pic: Are Ripped Stockings Fabu For Fall?

We love this image from Kate Moss’ new fall Topshop collection, but the snagged tights give us pause. Since last time we were caught with major runs in our stockings we were embarrassed and had to pop home for another pair, we can’t wait to say, “I meant to look like this,” next time it…

Are Baggy, Footless Tights In Your Fashion Future?

I’m all for most hosiery trends, whether it be two-toned, crazy-patterned, or studded leg wear. And I’ve never been an opponent of “tights as pants,” as long as it’s done tastefully. But I have to admit that I don’t know what to make of Wolford’s Voile leggings/footless tights.

Camel Ammo Fights Camel Toe

Camel toe has stepped up its presence across America since leggings are back in style and tighter than ever. Instead of just switching back to pants, people keep coming up with ways to smooth things over. First, there was the

Stripes Are Tame When It Comes To Patterned Tights

Tights seem to be the final frontier in the fashion world, and, at last!, they’re getting explored with Christopher Columbus-like voracity. During Fall 2009 fashion weeks, Marc Jacobs showed some tights with interestingly placed blocks of color and fun stripes, but there are even wilder tights available outside the U.S., like the ones pictured at…
