here is me doing this....
my way...



*might be kind of hard to see because it's so dark-
but the first is a thick braided rib in burgundy/cinnamon colour and the second is a semi opaque teal...
might be easier to see if you enlarge..

ps. All the shades of blue at Alexander McQueen =

I like tights because they're democractic more accessible as a trend and easier to work into an outfit.

another quirky color combo. it seems like tights invite some wild color combinations.

i prefer duskier hues for tights. although i do have a pair of bright pink ribbed tights that i pull out once in awhile. i get a lot of up-down looks when i do. not always in approval.

but i think that's the thing about colored tights. they seem wild, even when an outfit is pretty demure.

soft, you look great in your tights. i think teal and burgundy are two of the best of the offbeat colors. they seem neutral, with a kick.

I love the tights with the open shoes. so subtle and gorgeous with that dress.

Oh my gosh, both the examples from Sartorialist and Fashionista are immense. I love this trend - colored tights are an instant way to make an outfit pop.
