For many years, I hated tights. Loathed them. They were constrictive, itchy and made my skirts ride up in awkward ways.
But last winter, during a post-brunch shopping trip in Brooklyn's Fort Greene neighborhood, I wandered into a boutique and discovered fleece-lined tights. I was amazed. Not only were these tights so much warmer than the tights I already owned -- and all my pants for that matter -- they were soft. As fleece.
I now own five pairs of these tights -- two in black, one grey, one brown and one navy -- which I frequently layer under my J.Crew black crepe fluted skirt or Diane von Furstenberg snakeskin-print skirt. At $35 a pair, they're without a doubt one of the best winter wardrobe investments I've ever made.
