Man, tights give me flashbacks to my private school days! We could only wear maroon or navy tights (or knee highs) so we would try to be creative and wear maroon tights and navy knee highs (or visa versa). So sad, I would have killed to have worn those electric blue ones posted above!!!!!

Now I'm inspired to wear colored tights too! I've worn them a couple of times but not recently. Now I guess it's easy to spot tfsers on the street

i wore my purple tights today.. despite them having a little run/hole on the calf :p

it was definitely eye-catching... i saw a few people looking when i was walking through the mall after work today

i was originally going to wear one of the two navy blue pairs that have been in my closet forever..
apparently they have been there since my childhood or something because they were WAY too small/short!
i couldn't pull either pair up all the way so it's time or me to let them go

thanks for some more great photos dear castingcrowns

they ARE everywhere...aren't they?!?!......

i luv em..
they are so cheerful sometimes and so subdued and elegant sometimes...
i know a lot of people say they have been doing this for awhile...
and believe me when i say that i have too...

but i guess that is what makes me so happy to see it get more popular...
and maybe why it stood out to me...
i love seeing what cool combos people come up with...
it's such a great way to add some personality to your look...

small investment>>>>>>>high reward...

*i think all stylists probably have some sort of secret hosiery obsession...
you cannot even imagine how many pairs i have...

anyway today in art one of my friends was talking to my OTHER friend about a time he remembered when she wore bright blue tights to school.. and, according to him, she looked like an alien .. yet he still liked her outfit. bizarre, random story, i know! but when i heard this i thought of this thread and everyone here who loves colored tights!

Anthropologie Shows Us How to Wear Colored Tights
Quote:
November 3rd, 2006

By now, black tights have become as ubiquitous as black leggings. They’re everywhere. While there’s nothing wrong with that, the avante garde among us may start thinking “same old, same old” and want to steer clear from all the sameness.
How to stand out among a sea of black? Well, Anthropologie shows us how in their Solstice Catalog.
Here we learn not to be afraid to mix bold colors with bold prints. Electric blue tights become a must have.

Here we learn to mix bold colors with subdued ones. Royal blue with white. Cream with cranberry. Turquoise and light blue. Khaki and yellow. You get the picture.



Here we learn that it’s OK to mix patterned tights with patterned clothing. The patterns don’t have to match but the colors need to be similar.

For those of us who are reticent about using colored tights, it’s OK to have them peeking out from under a wide trouser too. It’s also a good idea to have the same color elsewhere in your outfit.

Definitely not for the faint hearted but isn’t it oh-so-refreshing?
