Your Guide to Knit Tights!

Fall is hear and by the time you say that Winter is right next door. Fall is a strange time for time for tights. Depending on where you live it can be too warm, too cold or just perfect to wear your favorite tights out. There are one construction of tights that will keep you warm no matter how strong the bold air blows…

Knit tights, or sweater tights, or woolly tights, or cotton tights! Call them what you will but their main mission in life. Keep your Legs, feet and ankles warm, cozy and toasty in the bottom months of the year.

These are one of those one articles of clothing where some hate it and others will swear by it. There are pros and cons just like everything, but to the right person the pros outweigh the cons drastically. They are itchy, some may say. Yes, this is true. But it can only be said for cheap poorly constructed knit tights. The more expensive kind should be the softest tights you own!

Many people choose to buy the inexpensive brands of knit tights and end up wasting their money on a pile of yarny junk! Here are a few of the top brands of knit tights you can buy this time of year…

Foot Traffic (Combed Cotton)
Using the least words I can use to describe these tights, they are perfect! Not too thick, not too thin, not too tight, not too loose! These are the tights that will match any sort of material and will guarantee warm and comfort! They are incredible breathers and somehow never manage to sweat your feet at all! They are just about the coziest pair of tights you'll own! They do come in one size, so they should fit just about everyone. However, if you are very small they might be a little too large for you! Buy these, you won't regret them! Plus they come in a bushel of colors!

H&M Knit Tights

Just for the duration of this article I am going to pair H&M in with your average department store. They have this one pair of tights that on the packaging leaves you in the dark about the material but once you feel it, it should be love at first site. And once you pull them up your legs you should be demanding more pairs! I have 3 pairs of these, 1 black and 2 in an amazing heather gray. I am being completely honest when I say this, I sleep in these tights. They are THAT comfortable. Also, they aren't too thick. Not thick enough where you might as well be wearing pants. I've only seen them in black and gray but why should that stop you from buying a dozen of them!

American Apparel Bamboo Tights


When I first heard someone tell me about AA's Bamboo tights I had no clue what they were trying to describe. Bamboo? Like the tall wood like stem? How could you turn them into tights? But as I stood closer and closer to them it dawned upon me. They aren't like your typical bamboo at all! They are soft to the tough and delicate to the skin. I have to say I am glad I got the large size. They don't have a whole lot of stretch to them. They are more tall then they are wide. Very tall actually. If you get these I'd say get the M/L. They are finely ribbed ad incredibly cozy! The easiest way to describe is is they are like one giant sock. They aren't at all like the traditional wool tight that we all know. A very nice alternative to a traditional winter staple! You won't be disappointed!

Well here we are coming to an end. I hope I answered any questions that you had if you had any! Please email or comment with any questions. Before you get a pair let me know, I most likely have tried them before and I can offer a review!
