Knock-out Nylons

Fall is officially here and I couldn’t be happier!

Now’s the time to store summer ensembles and make room for new fashionable finds. I’ve already stocked up on the quintessential fall must-have—tights!

Last week, I scored three pairs for under $15 at the newly-opened Burlington Coat Factory in Union Square here in New York City. Two pairs were footed and the other was a footless fleece pair. I had never seen a fleece-lined pair of tights so I had to have them! Plus, tights are like panties, you can NEVER have too many!

From funky patterns to sexy fishnets, tights are the perfect way to keep gams warm while exuding cool, seasonal style.

Check out a few of these knock-out nylons:

Hue Layered Net Tights available here, $17

Wolford ‘Mona’ Tights available here, $72

Nordstrom Ribbed Tights available here, $9.90

Pretty Polly ‘Pretty Sqiggly’ Tights available here, $17

MAJOR SPLURGE: Missoni Printed Tights available here, $205

 What’s your fave tights style? Basic opaque, ribbed, or unique designs?


  1. Yes, totally addicted to fashion tights this season, the funkier the design the better. Loving the multi-pattern and thigh-high look. New fave sight, check it out when you have a chance:

      Thanks for your comment, Brandee!! I just checked out Peek Brooklyn! I had never heard of it. I would’ve included some of their hosiery in this round-up. Always great to learn about new online stores, etc. Thanks again!!

  2. I love a good pair of basic opaque tights. So very fall.

  3. I love unique designs. I have some black tights from Express that are basically like fishnets, but in the design of a flower. HAUTE!!!
