Sometimes, it’s a designer bag, pair of shoes, or article of clothing that takes an outfit from good to great. But on a rare few occasions, the star of the show is much less obvious. Case in point: Bella Hadid’s black tights, which she’s been wearing 24/7 since she touched down in Europe for fashion month. The supermodel arrived in Milan at the tail end of last week wearing a pair of semi-sheer black tights to the airport with a white tank top, knit shorts, and knee-high boots. Little did we know then that she’d repeat the accessory for most of her trip thus far.
Since her arrival, Hadid has styled her hosiery, which I most often buy for just $15 at Nordstrom, a total of four times, pairing the tights with miniskirts, Bermuda shorts, and knit sweaterdresses as well as stiletto, knee-high, and lace-up boots and socks with sneakers. (Talk about versatile.) And each time, the simple yet essential addition acted as the perfect last piece of the puzzle—an ever-important final touch to every one of her fashion month looks.
With much of Paris Fashion Week still to come, there’s no telling how many more black-tights appearances the supermodel will throw our way. For now, might I suggest snagging yourself a pair (or more) of the tried-and-true tights below?
