The first time I was really inspired by a pair of colored tights was when I saw Blair Waldorf wearing them on the first season of Gossip Girl. Never before had I coveted a preppy look until I discovered Blair. Her patterned or colored tights made anything she was wearing instantly more interesting – and I vowed to buy a few pairs myself. I did buy a few patterned pairs, but I never got up the courage to buy colored ones. That may change though, after looking at these style tips.
