Black tights have never faded away from the fashion scene. People who are into wearing black tights love them for the simple reason that they're so versatile, lightweight, practical, and fashionable. Not only do black tights keep you warm during the fall and winter seasons, they also go well with practically every clothing item out there, and they look gorgeous with every kind of footwear, too. The best thing is black tights can be used all throughout the year, even during the heat of summer, because black tights aren’t just available in thick cotton, but also come in sheer materials. It’s no wonder that they're a constant staple in women’s closets.

How do you wear black tights? Because they look so simple and so ordinary, people just tend to wear them with everything they own—which is exactly right. Again, black tights really are one of the most versatile accessories you can own. They can dress up a casual outfit and at the same time, they can also make you look a lot more formal. As long as you’re wearing an outfit that exposes quite a bit of your legs, then you’ve got room to show off your lovely black tights.

Short skirts are one of the most favored clothing items to pair with black tights. If you’ve ever seen photographs of Japanese or Catholic schoolgirls, then you know exactly how gorgeous black tights look with short skirts. The best part is you don’t even have to be a schoolgirl to pull off this look. You can take any short skirt you own—a leather miniskirt, a denim skirt, a checked pleated skirt, or a dainty floral mini—toss on some black tights, and you’ve got yourself a sassy new outfit.

Black tights can also be a real part of your outfit. They could serve as your pants for one, albeit a much tighter pair of pants. You can wear black tights along with an oversized top for a casual look, or throw on a shirtdress instead. If you have on a minidress, your black tights can also provide some coverage for your legs or simply be used to add a more bohemian touch to the outfit, depending on the type of tights you choose. You can choose plain black tights or go with something ribbed or something with a more whimsical pattern on them. You can also go all-out with patterned tights or fishnets.

Incredible shoes can also showcase your black tights. From boots to sandals to Mary Janes to platform shoes—black tights will definitely be a hit if you wear them with any of these shoes. Consider them as smoother, thinner substitutes for socks—and a fabulous way to add pizzazz to your outfit.

Black tights are a great way for you to show off your legs without baring some skin too. You can wear dresses, skirts, or shorts of any length with these accessories. As you can see, black tights aren’t just something to keep you warm during cold weather nor are they something to slip on if you’re stumped for new ideas for your outfits, but they can definitely make a strong fashion statement, too.
