Want to add sexy DIY to your style? Grab a pair of tights and punk them up! Some simple, no-sew modifications to thigh-highs or traditional pantyhose can save you from the ho-hum that is a plain pair of tights.

Rip 'em Up - Random runs may not look so great, but tight ripping is now an art form! Try creating a spooky skull on your thigh. Or create a stacked line of micro-tears in a strategic place. Want to control the rip? A little clear nail polish will stop it in its tracks.

Layer Colors - Fishnets and sheer hose are perfect for combining! They add a layer of sexiness while allowing the tights underneath to shine through. Slip a pair of red panty hose underneath a some black fishnets for a hot look. (Don't have red hose? Click here to grab a pair from The Spot Boutique's online store.) White hose under sheer pink thigh-highs are super cute. Bonus points for holding the thigh-highs up with a white garter belt. Really, the possibilities are endless!

Safety Pins - Safety Pins are an iconic punk DIY accessory. Group them together to make diamonds, circles, or squares. Run a line of them down the back or your tights to create a metallic backseam. Create a faux anklet with the tiny brass ones for some easy glam. Snip a hole, dab the edges with clear nail polish, then close the gap with extra-long pins. Try decorative novelty pins for something different!

Galaxy Effect Bleach Spray - Ok, stay with me on this. Got a pair of black or navy leggings? Fill a spray bottle with bleach, and give them a light spritzing. (In a well-ventillated, bleach-spritzing safe area, of course. Outside is best.) Instant galaxy effect!  The bleach creates a white starscape against the dark fabric.
