About five years ago, I blogged about how tights had become the new winter staple, quickly followed by leggings – a return likely sparked by the revival of  retro mini and shift dresses from the 1960s.

You can find durable fleece-lined tights at affordable stores like Rainbow for $7.99 each. I bought four black pair there this past week because I intend to stay warm this winter!
