This Winter's Must-Haves: Opaque Tights

With the chilly weather rolling around the corner for all of us who live in the northern hemisphere, it's time to once again put on our winter frumpiness. It's always sad trading in our tanks and shorts for layers and layers, but winter does not always have to be dull and solely characterized by your red and runny nose. Here are some must-haves for winter this season--because a girl's gotta have fun all year round.

1. Opaque tights:  Opaque tights are amazing. They're the PERFECT companion for almost every winter outfit, and so versatile too. Wear them under a dress to look sophisticated, with a shirtdress/tunic to look adorable, or under an oversized sweater for that boho-chic look. They go supremely well with flats, boots, booties, and heels. What is there not to love about opaque tights? 
They are great for keeping your legs warm and toasty in the winter, awesome for hiding blemishes like leg stubble (admit it, no girl shaves in the winter months), and magic for making your legs look thinner (if you go with a dark color, that is).

If you're feeling 
extra daring, try them in bright colors like blue or green. 

They're great for spicing up a boring ensemble. It's out with the leggings and in with the tights. Be wary of fishnet variations or wearing them with shorts- the former I always find rather "hoochie" (in the words of Tyra Banks) and the latter is just hard to pull off. But otherwise, opaque tights are just so totally tight (sorry, I couldn't resist).

That shade of blue is great.
