Tights: Free People

Every winter has a point of no return – where all you want to do is wear pants all the time – or at least just cover your cold legs with something. Tights are the classic choice for the moments when you want to wear a skirt but can’t stand the weather.

Sometimes it can be hard to wear tights without looking like a school girl, or looking crazy with weird colors and patterns. To give your tights a grown up makeover, here are some stylish winter outfits with tights that you can wear right now!

Warm Winter Tones

Winter Outfit with tights: Brown tights, burgundy and white sneakers, orange graphic tee, plaid skirt, denim jacket

Products: Skirt – PacSun, Shirt – Urban Outfitters, Jean Jacket – Old Navy, Tights – Target, Sneakers – FitFlop

Perfect for a day out or a cute coffee date, this outfit pairs a preppy tan and red plaid skirt with a burnt orange graphic t-shirt.

What brings this look from fall to winter is the addition of a warm, fleece-collared jean jacket and some brown opaque tights. Add an additional coat and winter accessories over top as needed.

Finally, for maximum comfort and walk-ability, finish off the look with some classic white tennis shoes with a burgundy detail on the back.

Subtle City Sleek

Winter outfits with tights: Outfit set with black polka dot tights

Products: Shirt – Everlane, Jeans – Missguided, Boots – DSW, Coat – Missguided, Tights – Old Navy

This is a super chic winter outfit with tights that you can wear out-and-about and still stay warm while exploring outside! Sometimes wearing tights in a subtle way can make them pop even more.

The tights under jeans look was super popular a couple of years ago, and you can bring it back in a low-key way with some barely ripped mom jeans with polka dot tights underneath. A black turtleneck is a sophisticated addition to the outfit, and some matching black chelsea boots complete the look.

Of course, a big fluffy navy blue coat is the perfect accessory to this outfit that’ll take you from indoors to outdoors in a minute.

Holiday Elegance

Products: Dress – Lulus, Tights – Shein, Shoes – ASOS, Necklace – Macy’s, Headband – Luisaviaroma

For a classic winter outfit with tights, I had to include a fun holiday dress! This emerald green off-the-shoulder dress is glamorous enough for any party you might be going to this winter.

The tights here are the real start of the show, though. Transparent black tights with embellishments are pretty, but not in a cheap way. They’re a great alternative to regular black tights, and match the gorgeous silver statement necklace.

Black strappy heels and a matching silk headband tie the dark colors in throughout the outfit, and they keep the sparkles in check (even though you’ll already light up the room…).
