The black opaque tights of last year are still going strong, but now they are accompanied by this year's hottest tight colors - jewel tones and greys. Designers like Burberry Prorsum, Luella, and John Galliano all used fall's fabulous colors in their tights for a look that was grown-up yet still fun. If you ask me, that's part of what makes it such a perfect trend for college.
