ModCloth Socks, Leggings, and Tights

You could call 2009 the year of ModCloth. Started by two college students out of their dorm room in 2002, Modcloth is now the go-to place for vintage, vintage-inspired, and indie clothing. They also carry an excellent selection of tights, leggings, and socks. Here are a few of my favorites…


Gnome Alone Socks
Aren’t these just the cutest knee high socks ever?


Winter Prep Thigh Highs in Dark Charcoal
I’m really digging the “sexy librarian” vibe here.


V is for Vixen Tights
Chevron patterns never get old, and these have a leg-lengthening effect.

Winter Semester Socks in Plum Pudding
You simply can’t go wrong with over-the-knee socks.


Teal Peacock Feather Tights
I own these in gold, and they’re one of my favorite buys this season!

Review: Stockingirl Merino Wool Sweater Tights

I’m not sure about other parts of the country, but here in Seattle it’s pretty cold and damp. Too cold and damp for my regular tights to keep me warm. So what do I do when nylon won’t suffice? Switch to wool sweater tights, of course!

Last summer, I picked up a pair each of the Stockingirl Amanda Ribbed Merino Wool tights and the Vanessa Thick Cable Knit Tights. Imported direct from Europe, they’re both composed of a 50% merino wool, 40% acrylic, 8% nylon, and 2% lycra blend. That fabric proportion makes these tights both warm and comfortable…cutting down on itchiness, enhancing durability (they’re machine washable!), and making them able to stretch and move with you.

These tights retail for $44.99 and are available in sizes Small through Extra Large, fitting a minimum height/weight of 4’11″/95 lbs. and a maximum height/weight of 5’11″/180 lbs. At 5’8/150 lbs., I’m smack dab in the middle of the large sizing and they fit perfectly. Finally, the tights come in five winter-appropriate and business-friendly colors: black, chocolate brown, charcoal gray, winter white, and navy blue. I own black in the ribbed version and charcoal gray in the cabled version. Now I wish I’d bought navy blue or winter white as well!

The sweater tights fit well and do a great job keeping your legs warm. With regular nylon tights, I often have to layer socks over my tights to keep my toes from freezing, but that’s not a problem with the merino wool blend. They are a tad less flexible than nylon, and if you’re especially curvy, you may want to go up a size. So far, I’ve worn each of these tights several times, and haven’t had any problems with them losing shape or fraying. If you’re in an area that experiences wintry weather, these are a definite must-buy.
