I live in the Tropics and I wear tights sometimes. Call me crazy, but it allows me to get away with wearing to work, dresses or skirts so short it’d be indecent otherwise 😛
I however only stick to black because that’s just how I like them. Fortunately for me, my office sometimes feels like the Tundra so its not quite uncomfortable to prance around in tights.
I also make sure I wear tights when I know I’ll be going to air conditioned places or else I’m likely to melt away in this heat. I did go out to a yong tau foo hawker stall for lunch one day (its my fave stall and its super hot there!) and me in my black tights did draw some stares – admittedly, it was more crazy than cool then 😉
My favourite tights come from Marks and Spencer. I don’t look anywhere else. They might come in boring colours but they work for me, and they last! I bought some nice patterned ones there too during a sale which were surprisingly nice on. I usually go for the opaque 60 denier look because I like the look of solid colours but the most adventurous I’ve been in to wear brown or grey. I personally balk at any other colour.
So what d’ya think about wearing tights in the tropics? Is it crazy or cool? Do you do it? 🙂
