^ ah, well, that's my loose terminology. I meant that the shoes are strappy.
The tights look to me like a deep burgundy.

Coloured tights have always been my standard in the fall and winter, since I was little. I hope I never give it up! I like to wear tights and shoes that are the same color.

i love this look. i have a few pairs of bright tights... royal blue-purple, gold, rust, and bright yellow. they're starting to get a bit fuzzy and worn out - i think i'm going to order some pairs from American Apparel. they have a lot of beautiful colors and are allegedly opaque. i like Violet, Poppy, and Plum in particular.

This girl may be my favorite. I have never coveted purple tights before!
(She's in the Paris Streetstyle thread too!)

I love coloured tights. I've got dark blue, teal blue, red, white. I'd love some orange or a really bright aqua blue. The pink and pale purple are nice too.

I think I like this.. in London I almost only see girls with bright stockings.. that is just way too much for me personally.. I really love it when it's a dark eggplant colour... yum.

I think I will start trying this with shades of purple.
I already have a very dark purple pair that isn't too bold but I will start working my way from that.....
and then onto the blue maybe....
I love all the bright smurfy blues.

Softgrey- I can enlarge your pics now...
I love the teal....
so subtle but such a good twist and goes great with the grey dress.
Your style is perfect.

I love the subtle mist shade from Commes Des Garcons and bottle green tights and have been quite tempted by buying a yellow pair.
As long as there's no acidic playdough crazy new-rave coorination going on it can look as good as opaque black.

OMG, this thread is new? I have been doing them two years ago.....

I have them in electric blue, olive green, red, purple, mustard yellow, grey and going to buy a cinemon red pair.

They are absolutely the coolest thing to wear with mini dress and ankle boots, even high boots and knee high socks!!!

where is the best place to buy these tights? I read the reviews on American Apparel and everyone says that the waist band is too tight?
