Brightly colored, opaque tights emerge as a staple trend for fall on the Milly runway.

Tights are a creative and functional way to add an extra layer of fun to any outfit, no matter the season or setting.  And no, these are not your mothers’ hose!  Urban Outfitters, H&M, and American Apparel have taken hints from runway looks by Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler and are opting to offer wide varieties of printed and brightly colored tights to stylish shoppers.

Printed tights run rampant on the Marc Jacobs runway.

One way to subtly incorporate tights into an outfit is by wearing a pair in basic, neutral colors like nude, black, or white under a dress paired with boots.  Wearing tights in the fall can extend the life of a summer dress by covering bare legs and adding any extra dimension of color to an ensemble.

For all of you fearless fashionistas out there, printed tights are for you!  To make a lasting impression, wear a pair of floral tights under denim cutoffs or dressy shorts.  Since this look is bold and daring, be sure to keep the upper portion of the outfit subdued and demure to avoid looking like a fashion victim rather than fashion-forward.

Most importantly, experiment!  Although there is only one true way to wear tights, the pieces you wear them with makes a world of difference and opens up your closet doors to endless possibilities.
