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. Australian designer James Lillis, who makes the craziest, fanciest tights we’ve ever seen, has come up with a style called “Cages” that cost $120 a pair. The leggings feature gold or silver chains hooked onto them — so it looks like your legs are locked in a cage. You know how your legs feel so fabulous when you take off a pair of tights at the end of the day? They’d probably feel twice as free when you let them out of these leg Cages.

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] Keep reading »

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. I was in this situation just last week, and it occurred to me that I should be wearing more than one pair of tights. Sure, you can double up on black, but pairing crocheted tights with brightly colored ones is the most fun your legs are going to have all winter.

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 around my apartment, getting ready to meet a gentleman for drinks, when my last pair of black tights got a hole in them. Since I had about 15 minutes before I had to leave (ironically the exact amount of time it would have taken for a pair of self-healing tights to mend themselves), I decided to walk down the block to the drugstore and buy a new pair. However, I discovered that the drugstore doesn’t sell tights, only sheer pantyhose, which are not attractive. [Times Online] Keep reading »
