When Kendall Jenner isn't wearing a statement belt bag or sporting head-to-toe Adidas, she's making the case for a bold, leggy look. With Fashion Week underway, the supermodel was spotted in a Cher Horowitz-worthy '90s plaid mini dress and hunter green tights. The following day, she polished off her oversize, brown knit sweater with matching brown tights. But let's be clear — she's not the only one taking cues from the 1960s-era style. The Fall 2018 runways also show serious proof of co-signing the return of the very colourful tight.
Adam Selman sent out flashy '80s attire paired with sheer tights in a range of reds, yellows, and blues. Ulla Johnson styled pretty, floaty prairie dresses with thick saffron-coloured knit tights. Jeremy Scott churned out his signature mix of technicolour outfits with coordinated tights in purple, orange, pastel pink, green, and turquoise, while NYFW first-timer Saks Potts underscored 1950s-esque, fur-trimmed coats with opaque, pastel-hued tights. And you can always count on Tom Ford to take any burgeoning trend to the next level. Case in point: his distinct neon-infused animal-print tights are loud, fun, and not for the faint of heart.
The best part about this colourful trend? Styling is more fun than ever. You don't have to go '80s Brat Pack, nor do you have to subscribe to a mod Jane Birkin in Blow Up aesthetic. Instead, these rainbow tights work with softer palettes, flirty florals, and luxe outerwear. No need to wait till Fall, though — you can shop the trend now. Get inspired ahead, then follow along with Kendall's entire Fashion Month.
