hey everyone! how's it going? i'm on summer break now so i should be able to post tons for you all.
i noticed a cute trend for a new type of tights i hadn't seen before lately i wanted to share with you: fake thigh highs!
fake thigh highs are tights which have a portion printed black where a thigh high sock would cover, and where your skin would normally be showing there's pantyhose. other than the fact that this means no more slipping thigh highs, this allows for tons of cool designs to be printed on and the idea of the top of the sock to be played with!
there's generally two ways i've seen these being made-- by either adding a cool design to right above the thigh high that looks like tattoo tights, or by making the top of the "sock" portion into another shape.

|cat tights from ryuryu|
|urban outfitters thi|
so as you can see, i think these really only come in varieties of black at the moment. i don't know if it's something to do with the pantyhose portion, so both sections have to be made out of pantyhose material, or what-- but i'm sure that soon enough there will be even more variation on this theme. it looks really cute and i bet it'll get even more popular.
even though there's only black, i think black tights with a colorful spring outfit are a great match. i like to wear black tights with something really colorful to add contrast and ground the outfit. plus, i think these are pretty sheer and lightweight for the most part, and you have to wear them with something shorter to show the effect, so i think they're still great for dressing for springtime.
what do you guys think about thigh high tights? are you disappointed they only come in black? looking to see a type of design you haven't found yet? have a favorite pair already? leave me a comment and let me know!
