Leggings and tights appeared throughout fashion history, and are once again a fun, economical fashion style this year. Pierre Cardin’s 1967 Space Age Collection featured white knitted skin tight cat-suits, tubular dresses, and open sided smocks, aka tabards, worn over leggings. Fifteen or so years later, leggings hit the fashion scene again. Shorts, mini skirts, and even a lace tutu over leggings were all hot ensembles. Being in my 20’s this was once again an easy, economical go to wardrobe transformer. I really loved the style and was excited to receive two No nonsense products – denim leggings and mustard colored tights – to review.
Once again leggings and tights have become a hot fashion accessory but being a midlife woman raised some questions. Perhaps I’m just a bit too old to be sporting leggings or colored tights I worried. Of course having a fashion photographer/talent booking agent for a son, I knew where to ask for advice. “Oh Ma, think of the 60s or 80’s while being comfortable with your lengths and colors,” Red advised in a professional, fun tone. “Don’t worry, you’ll look fabulous.”
Serving dinner for the family on Christmas Eve I wanted (and needed) to be comfortable and fashionable. I chose to wear the No nonsense leggings. Not only are they soft, comfortably flexible, and breathe well, they look fabulous with a long sweater and shiny heels. Being so busy with preparing dinner I failed to ask Red for a photo of the outfit.
The mustard colored tights went well with my long brown Danskin skirt with a high flying slit, a colorful teal, beige, and mustard paisley blouse and sequined tan flats. Hubby was impressed which of course made me feel magnificent. Red added, “Ma you are still a hippie and wear it well. That looks great.”
Red suggested a more casual, high fashion ensemble for those fabulously colored tights; brown shorts, mustard tights, and a long, belted tee shirt while the Florida weather is still mild.
