How To Salvage Your Ripped Tights

As annoying as they are, black tights are a staple in our winter wardrobes, especially on those days when we want to rock a cute skirt with our chunky knit sweaters.

But perhaps the worst thing about wearing tights is, after coming to terms with them and finding the perfect pair, you get a giant rip at the foot, resulting in a toe (or two) slipping out.

Womp womp.

But that doesn't mean you need to throw away your (otherwise) perfectly good pair of tights into the garbage. Instead, use this trick from Refinery29's Connie Wang to salvage your pantyhose.

Watch the video above to see the trick in action and rejoice!
