The long Winter is finally over and we can start wearing skirts and dresses without freezing to death, but, what about our sun-deprived legs that haven't seen the light in months? Many women, myself included, feel self conscious during Spring and the beginning of Summer when our legs are less than tan. Now, thanks to Hanes you can slip the perfect shade of bronze on every morning to make your legs look tan. Who needs all those crazy lotions and dangerous tanning beds when you can just put on a pair of tights?

To help me transition my winter legs into summer, Hanes sent me a pair of their Sunkissed Ultra Sheer tights to style.  The tights come in five shades you can find the perfect match for your skin tone and, for just the right fit, the Sunkissed sheer comes in control top or a smoothing top.  I chose the medium bronze shade for my skin.  The slight shine and sheerness makes them look more like your skin, unlike traditional panty hose which can look fake. See the photo below for a comparison, can't even tell I have tights on, can you? 
I will definitely be wearing these in the coming weeks if the weather stays chilly like this, I had been worrying about what I would do for my cousin's wedding the first week of June, but now I know I'll be wearing these! My mom had been toying with the idea of getting a spray tan for her legs, but she went out and got a pair of Hanes for herself.

P.S. The skirt above came with a vest, so I figured I'd show you the outfit with the vest, even though it looks crazy. Ha ha. Would be fun for a themed party though, so I'll hold on to it.

*Disclosure: I received the tights photographed above free for the purpose of this post, but all opinions are my own.
