Above are the Stockingirl cable knit tights, cotton, opaque, 4 sizes (S-XL), $16.99 USD/pair (!!!), available in ten colors: blue-violet, cherry, tangerine, teal, fuschia, denim, winter white, graphite, black, and light truffle.
I know it’s getting a bit warm for cable knit tights, but I just had to post about these, especially since they’re on crazy sale over at Stockingirl.com. I swear I don’t work for that company and they don’t sponsor me in any way; they just sell so much stuff I like (especially when it’s on sale) that I can’t help but talk about it.
These tights are really quite nice, especially with knee-length and higher skirts when it gets chilly. I bought a pair of these when they were originally priced at $35.00 or so and they kept my legs very, very warm.
My chief complaint is that they’re a little snug, particularly if you have muscular legs or curvy hips and bum so you may want to go up a size. I first purchased the graphite color in size Large, however the crotch of the stockings hung somewhere around mid-thigh so when I decided to buy the cherry red color (featured on the model), I went up to Extra Large and they fit perfectly. Definitely pick these up for next winter while you can. What’s better than luxury on a budget?
