Right as winter started rearing its chilly head in Nov. 2023, both Dua Lipa and Kylie Jenner shared photos of themselves wearing sheer electric blue tights on Instagram within the span of a week. Lipa and Jenner’s styling followed colored tights in Versace’s Fall 2023 collection and Proenza Schouler Spring 2024 collection, and now, the trend is everywhere you look. As a spring with chilly temperatures nears, there’s no better accessory for transitional weather than a pair of bright tights. We’ve thawed from the depths of winter, plants are beginning to sprout, and it’s time to trade in your black pair for hues of rose, sage, or lilac to match Earth’s blooms. Below, find NYLON’s favorite colored tights to liven up your wardrobe.

Sheertex Color Control Top Sheer Rip-Resist Tights

Ring in spring with their lime and rose colors, which conjure images of fresh grass and cherry blossoms.
