Leggings vs. Tights

Now that the weather has turned and it is nice and chilly here in San Francisco, I have been thinking of ways to get some extra use out of my spring and summer wardrobe. I can't bare to tuck away my skirts and shorts for an everlasting winter here in SF. So instead I resort to layering my normally leg baring frocks with leggings or tights.

To add a little pizazz to my outfits I usually opt for patterned leggings or tights, but recently I have had trouble deciding which I prefer. Tights are usually best with fitted skirts or shorts, while leggings seem to look best with over-sized shirts and dresses. No matter which I like best there is a plethora of options out there these days. Below are a few of my top picks for the season. Seen any tights or leggings you are dying for? What colors or patterns are you looking to try this season? Cant wait to hear!

1. Leather Panel Leggings, Bloomingdales
2. Kirily Johnston Leggings, Shopbop
3. Tie Dye Velvet Leggings, Shopbop
4. Jumping Vines Leggings, Anthropologie
5. Flower Tights, Anthropologie
6. Leopard Tights, ASOS
7. Heart Tights, Topshop
8. Gipsy Spot Tights, ASOS
9. Emerald Tights, Topshop



  1. I think a discussion of how to distinguish a pair of leggings from a a pair of tights should be included in this post, Margot. It may seem simple (hint: one can see their ass through tights), but I've seen a few folks in SF that could use a tutorial...

    P.S. Might have to order #8, those are *gorgeous*

  2. Love this article Margo and love the choices that you picked. I want a few of these so hard to choose... Keep up the good work.
