Even though black tights go with everything — shorts, skirts, dresses — they're so boring! Yawn. We could definitely use a hosiery upgrade, and knowing you feel the same, we've rounded up a dozen unexpectedly chic styles that work just as well as your go-to pair. (Okay, fine, maybe we threw in a regular opaque one.)
While black opaques blend in with your look, elongate the leg line, and all that jazz, the styles in the gallery ahead serve to make your outfit pop. From a dark-purple number that will be a subtle change from your regular pair to a way-cool alphabet-print pick, these tights will definitely jazz up your look with eye-catching, look-at-me legs.
