From Rittenhouse Square to Fishtown, I am amazed at how some Philadelphians have quickly transitioned into their fall wear wardrobe. My favorite can’t-live-without-it accessory for fall is tights.

You can transition any piece in your closet by adding some leg-a-licious flavor. Get some show-stopping legwear into your closet:

Hand-dyed printed tights (I call these snake legs):
Topstitch Boutique – 54 N. 3rd Street in Old City

Black liquid tights:
Nikki London Boutique – 520 S. 4th Street (Nikki London carries curvy girl tights.)

1990s vintage gold lamé tights:
Decades Vintage – 723 South 4th Street. on Philadelphia’s historic Fabric Row

  2. I just bought some really fun tights by Franzoni from TJ Maxx. Black and purple diamond pattern. Snake legs are pretty hot!!!
