15 Holiday Tights You Need To Keep You Warm & Stylish At This Season's Parties — PHOTOS

Holiday party season is almost in full swing, and that means one thing: party dresses! (Or, you know skirts). If you live on the West Coast where it's warm and sunny all the time, then you don't have to worry, but for those of us facing serious winter weather, exposed legs isn't exactly practical. But you don't have to resort to pants (unless you want to!), because there are so many options for cute holiday tights to wear this festive season.

I'm a huge fan of tights because not only do they keep you warm enough to still be able to wear skirts and dresses in the colder months, but they also give you so much room for creativity. From colors, to textures, to patterns, you can change up your look pretty drastically, even if you're wearing the same skirt over and over again. Plus, the best part? They're pretty cheap, so you can pick up multiple pairs to suit your mood.

Whether or not you prefer to stay a bit more basic and subtle on a day-to-day basis, holiday parties are the perfect opportunity to try out a pair of tights that's slightly more exciting. Shop these 15 pairs of tights to keep you stylish (and warm) throughout the holiday party season.
