Today I’m giving away patterned tights. First, let me say that only some women can wear these well and I am not among that small population. The black and white ones were bought in a moment of panic and creative problem solving. I was at work in old jeans (we were moving offices that day) and was invited last minute to a dinner event that night. I ran to Winner’s, the closest apparel store to my old office, and bought a plain black Calvin Klein dress, big black belt and these tights, the only ones in the store in my size – honest. I was wearing black boots and the dress was knee length so the only part that showed was the four inches around my knee. I never wore them again. I can’t remember why I came to possess the nude tights, I don’t think I ever wore them. Not only are patterned tights challenging on your leg, the pattern feels like little razors on the soles of your feet by the end of the night. I am committed to plain hosiery.
They’re going to my neighbour. She gets away with patterned tights and looks great.
