What to Buy Fall 2007: Tights

What: Way back in February, Kathryn told you to stock up on tights, so we’re hoping you did. Tights are everywhere for fall, seen especially in the season’s top neutral – gray.

What the fashion heads say: This on the fall tight forecast from iVillage.com’s Beauty and Style page: We all welcome one more winter where fashionistas don’t have to freeze to look fashionable.

What I say: They keep the legs cozy and keep everything in place, so what’s not to like? Though the palette can be somber, up the interest factor with texture – think knits, ribbing, embellishments. Also, you can pair gray or black tights with some of fall’s sophisticated plaids or classic jewel-toned pieces (like in the Marc Jacobs look, above) to make sure the look doesn’t fall flat. Slip on a pair of the season’s sexy boots or power pumps, and you’re ready to take on the world (or you’ll look like you are, anyway).
