I’m all about wearing tights on travel days! No constrictive waistbands on a plane for me. That said, we can all do better than yoga pants or sweat pants when we travel, ladies. What I love about my favorite pairs of tights is that they can bring my outfit together and enable me to look semi-pulled together, even when I’m staggering onto the plane for an o-dark-thirty flight.
Pair the Nau Randygoat tight with any tunic or long flannel shirt, add a stretchy belt if you must (I don’t) and wear with either boots (if you need to travel with a pair and don’t have room in your luggage) or your coziest pair of sneakers.
Nau is dedicated to using sustainable materials in their clothing, so what you get in their Randygoat tight is a recycled polyester and Merino wool blend (76% poly, 18% wool). The result is a fleecy lining with a wool outer that moves with your body. Yes, you could wear this on brisk winter hikes or neighborhood walks, too. There’s a bit of spandex in there as well, so you get some stretch. Personally, I wouldn’t mind a bit more stretch to the tight, which is really my only complaint.
Nau describes the fit as a ‘body skimming style’, and I concur…these tights definitely hug you, so I wouldn’t size down. But they certainly don’t get bunchy or saggy, which is so nice.
The tights come in three muted colors, which go with just about everything. You get to pick between cape heather (a light gray), cavier heather (black) or peat heather (a greenish gray). The only trouble: these tights will wear best if they are line dried. Sorry, my low-maintenance friends. Pick up a pair at Nau for $115 in XS-L. The women’s medium fit me well in length (I’m 5’4″). If you love your tights, there are more offerings in the Randygoat collection, including a men’s pant, henley and hoodie and a women’s pullover and jacket.
