Trend Watch | Winter Legwear

When No nonsense contacted me to create some looks using their tights and leggings, you didn’t have to ask me twice!  Colored tights are something I was already wanting to add to my fall/winter wardrobe.  They are an inexpensive way to bring new life to sweater dresses and add a pop of color to basic black skirts and dresses.  I was on the verge of buying a bright yellow pair but held out for my products to arrive…and it paid off.

The first thing out of the box was a bright yellow pair of tights.  YES!

In that box was also the comfiest pair of skinny jeans leggings.  If you know me, you KNOW how much I love dark wash skinny jeans and you also know how much I love leggings.  So imagine how over the moon I was with something that combines BOTH!

Umm, can I live in these things?

When I pulled the No nonsense tights and leggings out of the packaging, the first thing I noticed is how incredibly well made their tights are.  They’re a medium weight and offer just the right amount of support.  There’s nothing I hate worse than tights that are too loose or don’t make me feel “held in”.  These did the job perfectly and felt as high quality as some much more expensive tights I’ve bought from specialty stores.

Here’s how I paired up the yellow tights with my Payday Pretty sweater dress.

When I slipped into the skinny jeans leggings, I knew I was in trouble.  They are so incredibly comfortable and forgiving.  So basically, I can eat my way through the holidays wearing these suckers every day and indulging in every sweet I want.  Woo hoo!

I paired them up with my other Payday Pretty find – this gray cableknit long cardigan.        [Sweater:  Ross (Similar)/Shirt:  Target (Similar)/Scarf:  Rue 21 (Similar)/Leggings:  No nonsense/Boot socks:  Target/Boots:  Lucky Brand (Similar)/Earrings:  Target]

Thank you, No nonsense for these easy, inexpensive ways to add some new life to my wardrobe!

    Oh My Goodness!! I love both of these looks! I didn’t realize that No Nonsense made such great items (I wore their pantyhose back in the day)! I have been wanting to incorporate some tights and sweater dresses into my wardrobe, and I love the way you wore those yellow tights – what a great sweater dress for them! The leggings look toooo comfy and I have a similar sweater, so I foresee myself recreating this look! When I saw the scarf I couldn’t wait to see where you bought it…RUE 21!?! Yeah! Oh, and I want the boots–both pairs! 🙂 I think you have just given me a few more items for my Christmas list today!

    LOVE both outfits, Alison! I so want to try the No Nonsense brand but none of the stores around here carry the leggings or tights. ;( I have quite the collection of colored tights and love them. They make winter drab outfits so much happier. 😉

    Hi there Alison. My name is Ada. I am a huge fan of Heather’s blog over at and I see you always leave her comments. But every time I clicked by your name, I couldn’t see a link to your page. Today, Heather posted a blog and gladly she had your link in there so consider me your newest fan & follower.

    I am a huge fan of tights and knee-high socks and leg-warmers. I think every mom or mom-to-be needs them in her closet. You have styled both of these pairs so well and I especially love the first outfit with the long, multi-colored stripped dress. The mustard stands out so much. I purchased some bright-colored tights a couple of months ago, including mustard and cannot wait to wear them after my pregnancy. I am due with my first baby at the end of January. =)

    I would love for you to stop by my blog, check out my style & follow me.

    P.S. You are real pretty.

    Have a Fantastic Weekend, Ada. =)

    • PrettyOn

      Aww, thanks Ada! I’m so happy we found each other. You are so cute!

      Aren’t colored tights the best? They make every dress better. I am loving them, they add just the right amount of warmth to my sweater dresses.

      Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    • PrettyOn

      Oh and congrats on the baby, how exciting!!!

    Ok, sold! I need those jeggings! They look so much like real jeans. Not like the cheaper looking ones. And that yellow! So bright! So bold! Loving it all!

    • Michael Z

      Even better – my grocery store and local Rite Aid sell them!

  20. shanna schneider

    I would have never known what to do with yellow tights, but YOU rocked it!!! Love this look!!
