The Top 25 Tights for Fall and Winter: 2012 Edition

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Now that Fall is definitely on its way (at least in my neck of the woods) it’s time for our annual list of the best tights for Autumn and Winter. This season sees the return of some classic trends, as well as the addition of some brand new ones. Floral prints and lace, ever popular patterns for the cooler months, make a reappearance and dots are a huge trend for this season — every hosiery manufacturer has at least one dotted style, I think. Patches on the knees are another trend, and colorblocking has migrated from the runway to legwear. And of course, there’s a brand new (but perhaps still on the fringes) trend, ombre. As always, just click on the photo to be taken directly to the purchasing page.

What’s your favorite from the tights listed below? Got any you love that we didn’t include? I’d love to read about it in the comments!

    Since I am about to migrate south for the winter, I had to order a pair of Monarch butterfly tights! Too bad the purple ombré ones were sold out…fantastic-looking.

  6. Gary says:

    Wow, each one’s better than the next. For me, the more sheer the better. The opaques look a bit frumpy. The orange butterfly pair is pretty wild. But my faves are the Sheer Star Tights and the Flock of Flowers, with the Transparenze Fiori tights close behind. Thanks for the great post. Treacle!

    Those Les Queues des Sardines tights are just amazing. That may be the second item of theirs I pick up! I love my Bouba tights.
