Today a fun pair of tights, whether plain or patterned, are a must-have accessory that we love when we want to look cute. However, they were mainly worn by men until the 1800s when they became an item for women to wear. In the 1920s, synthetic yarns made them affordable to the masses, catapulting the trend we know and love today. Whether we are going for a grunge look, a hipster outfit or a kawaii style, we need a perfect pair of tights to finish off our look. Since they hug our legs, they can also complete a sexy look that makes us worthy of a red carpet. We love browsing Tumblr for inspiration on how to wear tights.
