20 Unique Tights, Stockings and Socks to Wear This Winter

Welcome to the best time of the year: hosiery season! Temperatures are dropping in the Northern Hemisphere, but that doesn’t mean you have to cover up your legs and put away your short skirts until it gets warmer. After all, tights are warmer than pants in the winter, and even sheer stockings are wearable during the fall.

It’s easy to get into the habit of pulling on the black tights-black boots-black-coat combination when it gets cold, but is that really a satisfying ensemble? We’re so lucky the hosiery industry is willing to take a few risks with their novelty styles.

From colorful animal-printed tights to spidery black sheers that are anything but basic, stretch your comfort zone (or just add to your stockings drawer) with some less-than-typical legwear. Best of all, these picks start at just $9. No matter your budget, your legs won’t be boring this winter.
