A "Tight" Must-Try Fall Trend

D.C. has finally gotten a bit of chill in the air, and we're excited to start to work in one of our favorite fall trends that everyone can try - colored opaque tights!

We've got royal blue, magenta, chocolate, heather grey and of course black opaque tights by HUE to put some trendy spice into your autumn wardrobe. Our Periwinkle model shows off the easiest way to work this trend...take a simple black dress or skirt and make it pop with a bright tight. But, don't limit yourself just to black over your colored tights! Greys, browns, navys and most other basic colors and even simple prints are also good candidates for this trend.

Have a less-simple dress or skirt that needs to be updated? Our designers are showing everything, including sparkly and sassy holiday dresses, with opaque black tights! Adding black tights to almost any skirt or dress instantly makes your outfit current. AND, adding an opaque tight, especially black, can make you feel more comfortable in short hemlines!

And YES, it's OK to wear your opaque tights with peep toe shoes! We know, we know, it's been a major faux pas in the past, but it's definitely A-OK this fall and winter. In fact, it's fashion forward! BUT, panty hose with open toe is still kind of...ugly.

Stop on over to Periwinkle to grab a pair of fun tights before they're all gone. Don't forget about Oktoberfest here this Saturday! :)
