Just because it's almost winter and the weather sometimes limits your wardrobe doesn't necessarily mean you need to play it safe. We still want to challenge ourselves (and you!) to get sartorially inspired to change things up now and again. Take it from Bella Hadid, who just showed us a surprising winter staple we hadn't thought about in quite some time. We're talking about novelty tights.
For Hadid, that meant stepping out in a pair from Alexander Wang emblazoned with the word "girls" across both thighs, which she paired with a shirtdress, a furry coat, and lace-up booties. For us, her look serves as a reminder that not all hosiery has to be practical. Non-basic tights are a great way to add a fresh twist to any party looks you might be styling this season.
Even once the holidays have come and gone, you can keep wearing statement tights like Bella Hadid did for an edgy streetwear vibe. Either way, these fun tights are definitely a winter staple to have on your radar.
