Tights have always gone well with skating, whether on the ice or a roller rink. A colorful pair of tights can really liven up your skating outfit. I never did learn to ice skate, but have roller skated many times. One outfit I wore was to a Disco skate party and it consisted of: White skates, yellow socks, purple tights, red shorts, yellow t-shirt that said 'Disco Fever,' and purple head and wrist bands. Many of the other girls were also wearing tights. Fun time.
