LA Fashion Week Trend Alert: Black Tights

Quick: what's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of black tights? Cold weather, Fall or Winter, I bet. The last thing I would associate black tights with is sunny LA. So imagine my shock when I spotted so many girls at LA Fashion Week wearing black tights during the day. Mind you, the weather was about 75 degrees.

Don't get me wrong, I love a cool pair of tights when the weather calls for it but what do you think of black tights in warm weather? Is it fashionable or a fashion faux pas?

I am so excited that I can wear tights tonight. I am freezing right now and have to go to a little event and have this great dress and I want to wear tights with it and boots! SO YEAH.. the material is light and it is long sleeve but very thin, so perfect! Thanks!!!

i've worn black tights with a spaghetti strapped dress and pumps and i thought it looked cute...i think it depends on your own personal style. if it looks good on you, wear it. : )

A. You can definitely wear tights w/ open toe shoes, just make sure the seam isn't at the tip of your toe/ sticking out oddly off the edge of your shoe. B. Rarely, if ever, do I think sheer black stockings look good. I'm not sure why but black is one of the tones I think NEEDS to be opaque, which is why I'm so glad leggings are in. I think the second girl would look nice w/ silver stockings or leggings and the third would look nice with a textured (or not) nude tight.

It was only warm the last day of Fashion Week! The rest of the time it was FREEZING - especially in the tents!

It doesn't matter - as long as you're comfortable, you can wear anything you want and be fashionable.

I've always worn tights...didn't know it was a "trend". I also love the really thick wool ones with patterns in the winter. I have some really awesome plaid ones.

smarter fashion got it on the cools off really quickly, so I say a definite yes to black tights! It's not THAT hot here right now! (well, today it is and I am in a sun dress, but a few days ago it was cool :)

tights are definitely in see them everywhere on Gossip Girls, and it's a great way to protect your legs from a harsh autumn wind....or fake another stubbly leg hair day

tights and open-toed shoes sounds awful! i would NEVER wear them together.

i'm going to be the obligatory voice of reason here and not even address the fashion aspect, but: tights are too hot to wear in warm weather!

The thing is, Fashion Week was in Culver City, which is right by the beach, so it starts getting too cold to go bare legged at about 6pm. Everyone was just planning ahead, which is totally necessary in Souther California in October--cold mornings, hot days, cold nights. Mystery solved.

Eww, this is a total fashion NO NO to me. I hate it when people where tights and it's NOT freezing cold out.

i hate wearing tights...but i do like the look of them. living in canada though means i don't get too many opportunities to show off my legs off once the colder weather me thinks LA girls should appreciate their weather and their legs! save the tights for rainy days :)

I dunno Fab, as an LA resident I didn't think it was that sunny and warm the past few days! But maybe I'm just a wimp...

First - I love the chick's hair in the first pic! Short-hair girls represent (sorry, we don't get much love on TeamSugar)... Anyway, while I agree that tights are typically for cold weather - regardless of that it IS the end of October so if these gals want to wear tights LET THEM WEAR TIGHTS! ;) I'm just saying this because I know that here in Louisiana we don't get too many "tights chances" due to the warm weather, so 70 degrees would definitely be tight-worthy weather.
