Tights season no longer means it's chilly and time to cover your legs. That's because plenty of girls (dancers in particular) have started to snip away at and transform their stockings into crop tops, at all times of the year no less. There are plenty of DIY tutorials that show you how it's done, but Instagram users have also started a #tightsastops hashtag to show off their sheer, off-the-shoulder designs. Read on for a quick look at the result and check out a YouTube video on the trend. Finally, shop a few unique tights styles we can imagine pairing with a pleated skirt and heels for a night out on the town.
