Ombre tights: legwear alert

We have put it in our hair and on our nails with reckless abandon, so shocking is probably the last word that comes to mind when this trend has seamlessly (pun intended) extended to our legwear. Whether you want to go bold with bright colored stems or add subtle panache to your look this season, ombré tights are a choice that falls somewhere between the overt sensuality of gartered or elasticized thigh-highs and the childlike playfulness of colorfully printed tights. Says designer Tiffany Ju:

“They’ve been popping up in my illustrations for awhile but I felt the timing was right to make them. Personally, I love dressing in black and also shoes. I thought ombré tights would be a perfect compliment to both – an accent color and a way to draw attention to your killer footwear.”

Ju has put her Parsons degree to good use with the collection of ombré tights offered in her Etsy store, BZR Shop. Only opening her shop a few months ago, the range of tonally faded tights have already seen success. Trendy, slimming and a colorful canvas to showcase the rest of an ensemble, these tights are well priced and come with the satisfaction of supporting an independent designer to boot. Ju also plans to expand her collection in the future:

“I am definitely continuing to expand with clothes. That was the original plan but I had to put it on hold for a minute when the tights took off so fast. I’m just going to trust my instincts and stay creative.”

Until then you can view more of her tights offerings at the gallery above or by visiting her store.
