The rain has finally stopped and the snow is all melted in the North East, so what’s next to come? Flowers; the newest spring trend my mother can’t fathom me looking forward to is FLORALS. Fashion magazines like TeenVogue and Nylon are showcasing floral print tights, something a teenage me would have despised but I’m learning how to make each style my own.
I’ve been lusting after a pair of cute-sie floral tights to punk up, and I found a perfect pair; H&M’s floral tights are a cheap $15 and sooo so comfy and soft. They’re semi sheer white and the girls at Screaming Mimi’s (who noted their cuteness) described them as “tres modern romantic”. But, these were not the first pair I’ve looked at…
I took a lot of patterns and brands into consideration. Urban Outfitters has a few pairs currently in stock from sheer to opaque, ranging from $15 to $20 accordingly. Personal, Urban Outfitters is too hipster for me, but they can definitely be done up.
Similarly, TopShop has sheer thru opaque, but their prices can go up to $30, but your definitely paying for quality there.
Now, if you’re on a budget there are still options for you. Hue and other random generic brands have their versions of these tights available for you at your local department stores for as cheap as $4 so be sure to check your local Target or Macy’s, Filene’s, etc.
How To Wear Em:
As many of you know, I’m quite a punk rocker and have a rebellious side, especially when it comes to fashion. And yes, florals and pretty pink flowers are quite girly, but have no fear, there IS an edgy way to wear these wondrous tights! Dress it down with some boots or chucks is my idea. Sadly, I don’t have my Doc Martens yet, but I’ve seen it done and dammm is it cute! Throw on a tee or solid dress and rock out!
You can also dress it up for a chilly night on the town with all black; black dress, black shoes, throw in a leather jacket for some spice, you get the picture. Don’t be afraid to rock em with what YOU want; make this trend a part of your own personal style!
