American Apparel To Offer Butt-Baring Tights

American Apparel’s Coming Soon section shows products that will be sold by the retailer in the near future. Along with an oversized hair bow, a shiny vinyl weekend bag, and a nylon spandex micro-mesh long sleeve button-up, the store is planning to offer “sheer luxe cut-out pantyhose.” The name is misleading. It’s not like these…

Tights Are NOT Pants

Some geniuses had the great idea to start a website called Tights Are Not Pants. Why? They’re “tired of tolerating attempts to force tights into a non-native garment category and have decided to do something about it.” Downloadable flyers read: “Tell Your Douche Friends: TIGHTS ARE NOT PANTS,” “do unto others: tights are not pants,”…

If Tights Aren’t Constrictive Enough For You, Put Your Legs In Cages

As more celebrities say “no” to pants, tights and leggings have become stand-alone articles of clothing. Now, they’re getting accessorized. A couple months ago, we checked out some cool chain-mail stockings, but they appeared to be possibly dangerous.

Crave: We Love Colors Tights (Win A Pair!)

You may think tights season is over, but think again. There’s still a chill in the air in some parts of the country — and your air conditioned office. Footed and footless tights in tie-dye, stripe, or zigzag patterns are a fun way to throw caution to the wind. When the temperature heats up, you…

Style On The Street: Don’t Match, Blend

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: Winter is really all about having fun with tights. If you find an awesome pair that doesn’t match anything you own, just wear them with colors that are in the same family, like this young lady and her palette of deep hues. [Weardrobe]…

Layer Tights, Avoid Losing Feeling In Your Legs

Sometimes genius strikes when you least expect it. Like when you’re on your way home from work, and you realize you can’t feel your legs because just one thin pair of tights is protecting them from 30-degree temperatures and wind out the wazoo.

Genius Idea: Tights That Fix Themselves

A research team created an elastic substance that can mend itself — simply push the torn material together and 15 minutes later, voilà! Besides applications in the fields of medicine and technology, tights that don’t run is another extremely practical possibility. I would have found a pair very useful the other night. I was running…
