Trend Alert: Wool Tights for Fall and Cotton Cable Knit Tights for Spring

Wool Knit Tights were a huge trend this past winter to keep your legs warm and stylish paired with your skirts and boots. The trend will surely carry through our next cold season, as many designers styled wool tights with their fall fashions:

Moschino used Ribbed Wool Tights in light grey, while Marc Jacobs combined Ribbed Wool Leggings and Wool Sweater Knit Tights with Wool Socks. is currently having an end of season sale on all of their Wool Knit Legwear, and are excited about bringing back the trend for next fall with new fashion colors.

My personal favorite are cable knit tights for their extra thickness and sophisticated texture. Stockingirl is currently running a special on their Merino Wool Cable Knit Tights, with a buy 2 get 1 free offer.

For Spring, Stockingirl is offering lighter weight Cotton Cable Knit Tights, in a variety of fun and fashionable colors, including teal, fuchsia, eggplant, tangerine, cherry, and denim. Super cute, comfy, and durable, they are a steal for only $22.99.
