Nude No Nonsense Fishnet Tight Are Perfect for Even Leg Color
Dancers love fishnet tights. They give them the look of bare legs from far, but even out the color. Nude fishnets are perfect to cover veins and other leg flaws in midlife. In other words, they nicely “hide” discolorations from scars, injuries, veins, etc.When you have to wear tights in summer go for nude fishnets. They hide veins and other discolorations while giving the illusion of bare legs from far. #Nononsense #styletip Click To Tweet
These fishnets are posh chic and mature
These fishnets are not the type of fishnets you can buy for Halloween. The No Nonsense fishnets are serious tights. The toe section is knitted tightly. Thus, you will not have a toe sticking out of a mesh after a night of dancing. The fishnet is actually knitted as you can see in the photo below. Thus, I don’t have to fear to get tangled up with the fishnets on a button of the tuxedo when my partner lifts me.
No kidding! This scenario is not made up! It happened to us two years ago at the UAF students’ Latin Dance Club’s Halloween dance. The laughter of our students was loud, as was mine, which did not help in the funny situation. I will never ever wear any fishnets that are not knitted for that reason.
These fishnets have a nice net size regarding the see-thru and the contact they provide with the shoes. Thus, they are perfect for dance practice and performances and even office parties. They also come in other flesh colors. I wear fishnets in spring and fall when it is still too color or again too cold for bare legs.Fishnets give you the look of bare legs without the freeze factor of bare legs. Click To Tweet
Yes, you may not be a dancer. But you may want to wear fishnets for Halloween outfit without the above risk, or you want to wear a cocktail dress to the office holiday party, but your office dress code asks for tights and you want to wear those strappy sandals that just look perfect with your dress.Fishnets permit wearing strappy sandals. And in contrast to pantyhose, they don't look 'Old Lady.' Click To Tweet
Ribbed Tights Are a Must-have in Cold Climate in Winter
Winters in Alaska are cold, very cold, sometimes even extremely cold. Thus, unless there is a pineapple express with a Chinook you need to wear tights when you want to wear a dress or skirt.
When you live in a climate with about of seven months of below freezing temperatures tights are a fashion must-have. Finding tights beyond the usual black, brown, navy and gray is a challenge. There is a Fairbanks saying that
whatever you can’t get at Freddy’s you can’t get anywhere in town.
This Hosiery Comes in a Trendy Color
Stylish tights with muted colors and knit pattern like the ribbed tight shown in the photos fall into this category. Thus, you can imagine that I got really excited when I got these turnip tight with triple rib knit structure and sheer to the waist medium control top as a review sample.
Posh Chic Tights that Keep the Legs Warm
The vertical rib texture provides extra air space between the leg and the tight. As I have written several times here on High Latitude Style, thin layers of air are a fantastic insulator. In plain English, this tight with ribs has more potential to keep you warm than just a plain knit without any texture. Extra point, the vertical pattern provides the illusion of a slim, long leg as the “stripe” is much, much longer than wide.
Call it fashion’s trick No. 17.
A Pantyhose with Some Control
Another plus is the material as the panty is 27% spandex, while the legs are 7%. This means some control, but not like being squeezed into a griddle. And, before I forget, the pantyhose is knitted plain for a lean look under a pencil or straight skirt! Here someone has really spent some thoughts on making tights. Some of my American readers will also love that these No nonsense tights are made in the USA.
No nonsense Tights Are True to Size
My pair is a size S/M. According to the sizing measures, which are a function of height and weight, I am at the lower height range and 10 lb (4.5 kg) below the weight range. Thus, please be aware that the waist part and stripes would look a bit more sheer than they do in the photos when you are at the upper end of your size range. However, I love an opaque look. <3 Thus, I always go for the larger size in tights when on the edge between sizes to get this look when it comes to stylish fashion tights like these. From my perspective this tight has a perfect fit for me.
The price-performance ratio is great
I expect them to last for more than a season. These turnip triple rib tight costs $8.50 at No nonsense. Wearing them one day every two weeks (my laundry cycle) for seven months means 14 times per cold season. In two cold seasons, the tight would cost of about 30 cents per wear. Even when your cold season is only 5 months and you wear them just once a month for two season the price performance ratio is a great deal (less than $1).
This No Nonsense fishnets cost $6.99. This price is a great deal as even under my more than 6 hours/week dance practice and performance, they have last more than a year in the past. I own three pairs (now four) that are in rotation. This means these No nonsense fishnet fashion tights are less than a dollar in no time. I <3 them.
Even if you wear them only to two upcoming afternoon weddings and an office party this year or Halloween and for two or three similar occasions next year you get to less than a dollar per wear.
No Nonsense also has awesome lace tights as well. Perfect for date night (or Argentine Tango).
