I like to wear my AA ones, they are not tight for me at all.... H&M sells great ones as well, but they are so much cheaper

A good place to find colored tights could actually be your local discount store. At my TJ Maxx and Daffy's store, I always find purple or burgundy tights in the discount bin. Once, I even found two pairs of red Wolford tights for $0.99

Online, I've bought tights the colored E.G. smith tights from Sock-Dreams, but they seem to be out of stock on a lot of the colors. I've also seen them in Urban Outfitters in the past before. They are also available on Socksmith, but I have never ordered anything from the site, so I can't personally vouch for it . . They are kind of expensive, but I really love them.

I've also bought the tights from Stocking Girl, but I like my tights quite opaque, and they got runs in them quickly. But the color selection is really nice.

On the American Apparel tights, I'll agree about the waistband--I couldn't wait to get them off by the end of the day. I think maybe because they are very high-waisted?

I've also heard raves about Tabio . . . but as a sad stateside person, I don't have any experience with their wares.

I have tights in every colour imaginable my favorites though are: dove grey,mustard yellow,ocrre, rust, red, blue,navy, purple, school girl grey, grey, turqoise, and white. those are the ones i wear most. i like them with an all black outfit to add a boost of colour

my pet hate is when you can see through the tihts slightly imo they have to bee 80 denier or more .. very thick so you cant see through them. I also love wooly coloured tights so snuggly

my fav colour combinations atm are .. brown/ocre, brown/dove grey, brown/mustard yellow,grey/mustard yellow,purple/grey

does anyone else find that some colours are way more flattering to the legs them others ? what colours do u find most flattering ?

i love colored tights! i need to get some more for this year. last year a got a great berry/ wine colored pair from jcrew that were only $14.50 and good quality! here's the jcrew pairs that they are currently selling in bright colors..


jcrew.com

the berry one's are quite similar to mine, they look darker in person, but they are so flattering. they look better than my black tights in my opinion.
