Zooey Deschanel Wears Tights

Zooey Deschanel is known for her sweet style, indie hits and soothing voice. But lately, she’s become known for something else, too: wearing dark tights in summer. It seems the actress, next seen in the sitcom The New Girl, just can’t shake the look — and she knows it. “I am a year round tights girl,” she recently wrote on her blog, HelloGiggles.com. “I will wear tights even if it’s 100 degrees outside. Tights are my safety blanket. In them, I know that I can do a sweet row of cartwheels anytime, anywhere without anyone catching a glimpse of my knickers.” However, something changed this weekend. On Saturday, Deschanel joined Hollywood’s A-list — plus the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — at the BAFTA Brits to Watch gala in L.A., going barelegged underneath her tea-length Oscar de la Renta gown. Then Sunday, she surfaced at the Winnie the Pooh premiere in Los Angeles, again going tights-less under her cute Kate Spade ensemble (above). We love the actress’s charming style, but the tights thing has us torn. Tell us: What do you think of dark tights in summer?

What I admire about Zoe’s style is that she’s true to herself, and has her own thing going on. She doesn’t follow trends just because they’re in. She wears what she likes. So if she wants to wear tights in the summer I have no problem with that.

As a year-around hosiery wearer, I completely understand her feeling “safe” in tights. I always feel more confident when I am wearing a dress and my legs are covered. Zooey wears her hosiery with class, and there is nothing wrong with darker colors in summer as long as they work with the rest of the outfit. I hope Zooey keeps being herself despite some comments she will hear about that.

Zooey’s style is great. Most Men adore a gal in smooth stylish tights or silky Pantyhose ~ something that really showcases her lovely Legs. (Of course most guys will not admit to it if it is not popular – well the girls won’t admit to it always too). Alluring Pantyhose went through a 10 year slump as hosiery co’s stopped advertising on TV and girls found it cool to reject what their Mother once wore. (like “clothes”). ;) Luckily Zooey, Kate Middleton, Lindsay, Daisy Low, Beyoncé, Rhianna, Kylie, Katy Perry, etc… have all helped show the world that yes, Women & Men obviously Luv great Legs in sheer Hosiery. The fact that Zooey wears them in the hot summer, only shows just how much she likes Lingerie, great style, fashion and will fight before giving-up as the common folk would.
