Cold weather months call for tights. Though some brave the winter climate with bare legs, most of us prefer to cover up with that extra layer to save our skin from the blistering cold. After all, tights can add a lot to your ensemble and even help make the outfit. Use the excuse to protect your gams as an opportunity to upgrade your outfit. The only challenge that comes with wearing tights—those dreaded runs aside—is determining which shoes are best to pair with them.
