    I am starting to like the idea of tights. Gotta see if anyone sells them in adult sizes. I only saw ones for kids.

    Tights are great. And they come in tons of great solids and prints if your job isn't too conservative - also beige and black of course. Walmart and Target both had tights for women last winter, though I haven't looked this year yet.

    i bought a total crapload of fun tights at Target last year and i don't think i ever wore any of them! It's just easier to wear jeans or pants in the winter. But i wear skirts and dresses for all other times of the year, pretty much.

    Leida, I've bought them at the Bay in past years.

    I love skirts and stockings, but I could see where they would be uncomfortable.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    One word- Pants!
    Ideal Formal for me = Katherine Hepburn.
    Great pants... can do anything a skirt can do.
    And do it more comfortably.
    (Yeah, I'm obviously not dating anymore... and I don't care.)

    No need for stockings, or those crotch choking horrid, evil, pantyhose.
    I swore off those things back in High School when I discovered the self-stay Thigh Highs... FREEDOM!!!

    And later I took up garters and stockings for a bit... because they're fun.

    Smartwool tights have a place in my life under Pants as a wonderful cold weather accessory... though being in FL they seldom see use. I whip them out for trips home to TN.

    I wish I could find warm knit thigh highs that I could wear
    I have very heavy muscled calves & They dont make ones that will fit over my calves, much less reach 1/2 way up my thighs like they should.
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    Ohh... now "warm knit thigh highs"
    There's an idea that sounds good...
    Like really long warm lovely socks!

    I need to look into this.
    Despite being in FL... I don't like a chill in the winter.

    I have an idea for this that might could work... or I would have a better one, if I could knit.
