exactly, im only 5'4 so it's easy to do for me!

They sell a version of the knee-high ones on Cutseygirl.com, then come in purple, grey and black for 6.99 and they are called, Spandex Over Knee Leg Warmers.

Here is Rihanna in the Identical pair:

Is the Prada-wannabe socks from AA still for sale? I mean the two-toned ones...

It's not online and I am not sure if I have time to pick up at downtown Chicago.

Oh weird..! I kept doing this with some long red footless tights about a year ago because my feet were cold... who knew that it'd become a trend haha
S'quite funny.. some builders were shouting that I had holes in my tights or something.
Defiantely possible depending on how long the footless tights are..

The thing I'm hoping for is that the peep-toe deal doesn't extend into incredulous degrees. I say that peep-toe shoes are just enough. No need to make every bit of footwear peep-toe in element.

It wasn't until I seen a few pictures in which I finally seen what people were talking about. Simply put, these deals look more like stirrup pants... only on each leg and not originating from the waist. If I were a lady, I'd just stick with stockings/tights, long socks, regular socks, and that's it. No need to try to make EVERY style of footwear look terribly bad. As I say, "different doesn't always mean better." This is because you have different in a positive sense and different in a negative sense. This is more of different in a negative sense to me.

What would be my suggestions? Better have tall, fully-enclosed shoes. This is to avoid looking like a clown. I wouldn't recommend pumps or flats of any kind to compliment these "peep-toe tights." It just seems all senseless. I'd rather go with skinny-leg jeans and let the bottom part of the jeans take the form of the rest of what footwear I'm wearing (if I were a lady). I'm sorry. I don't find these to be very stylish. There will always be at least one lady who tries to wear it to where I make an exception, but I just don't see that with these tights right now.

As an off-topic note, it's good to go back to talking about tights as in regular tights and not as in leggings.

I think this style is unflattering and ugly. Even Rihanna looks ridiculous.

Even still... if I wanted a look like this and I were a lady, I'd go with leg warmers and ditch these tights. Would any of you leg warmer fans agree with me on this?

[UPDATE] By the way, Rihanna is beautiful. VERY beautiful. Anything to take away from her beauty or something thereof is unacceptable.

I like this trend.. The way I think I will do it is that I will just pull the leggings over the heel. I dont want to waste money to buy completely new ones when I have many pairs of leggings anyway..

Yeah, my friend wears her leggings like this, by literally just pulling them over her heel.
I'm a bit unsure on whether I like it or not. I think you have to wear them with the right outfit, or else you can just look a bit tacky! As someone has already said: Susie wears them very well!

i don't think there is too much to discuss. this is the type of thing that just happens naturally. i wear mine this way, a. because i love my summer/spring shoes that leave my ankle/top foot area cold, so i just pull them down.
