With winter comes more than a few fashion conundrums: finding a warm enough winter coat, avoiding hat hair, and trying to make your tights last long enough that you aren’t forced to buy a new pair for each and every day.
We all know from experience that once you snag your tights, they’re basically ruined, which is why we are obsessed with this awesome winter fashion hack to make sure your tights last longer: Simply freeze them before wearing them the first time, and they won’t rip as easily.
Here’s how to do it: After you’ve bought new pair, run them under water, squeeze out the excess water, and then freeze them overnight in a plastic bag. The next day, take them out of the freezer and let them defrost gradually at room temperature. After they've defrosted, you’ll be good to go — no need to do this again.
Fashion enthusiasts swear by this trick to make tights last longer, and given how much money we're prone to spending on tights in the winter, we're willing to try anything at this point.
