  • Accessorize with Tights for the Winter

    Since the winter has taken a turn for the ridiculously cold this week here on the East Coast, the talk at Rissy Roo's has been all about wearing winter ready outfits. And, what we mean by that is finding fun tights to wear with our dresses! After all, why should a little snow stop us from rocking cute dresses??

    We do realize, though, that there tend to be 2 types of women in the world: those who don't like tights, and those who obsess over tights. Since we can't bear to part with our dresses and skirts during the winter time, you can guess that the staff here at Rissy Roo's are quite obsessed with tights! That's why we've picked out our favorite funky pairs that we found on Pinterest. Tights can be found in so many different styles, colors, and patterns that they really are a great way to bring some personality to any outfit. So, we're hoping that we'll convince those non-tight-wearers out there to give it a go and put those dresses back on!

    Fun Shapes

    With Valentine's Day right around the corner, we thought these tights with hearts on them were too cute! Find a sexy black or red dress to wear with them, and you'll be ready to show off your V-Day spirit. If hearts aren't your thing, you can find tights with all sorts of fun shapes on them - everything from classic polka dots to funky geometic shapes, so keep a look-out for something that you feel matches your style and don't be afraid to try it out!

    Lace

    Since lace is such a hot trend right now, we love the idea of rocking the look in tights, rather than the normal shirt or dress. It gives a fun, new way to wear the look and be on-trend, while showing off your unique style and deviating from the norm a little.

    Winter Inspired

    Of course, with it being winter right now, you can't go wrong with winter-inspired tights! Look for ones that mimic a cozy winter sweater. A lot of these tights even come in thicker fabrics that are perfect for staying warm in the cold weather. We especially love the ones with little reindeer on them!

    Ombre

    Ombre has been a hot trend on everything from hair to dresses, so it's no surprise that the look as even made it to tights! If you love wearing bold, solid color tights, this is another great way to rock them.

    Floral Print

    We love all clothes with floral prints, and we especially love the idea of floral printed stockings matched with a plain, solid color dress. It's a great way to let one accessory do all the talking!
