Peep Toe Tights
Could this be a new trend in the making?

They don't necessarily have to be colored (though I think that seems to be what we've been seeing lately in terms of this look)...

And they're not leggings because they cover the ankle and extend further down onto the foot, maybe under the heel?

I haven't personally worn the look, but it came up in the colored tights thread and I (like softgrey) have questions about what exactly these are, how they are worn (is it a stirrup sort of thing??)...

So, let's discuss!

Here is a pic of a girl from thesartorialist.com.. some New York streetstyle i believe...

SO glad this was started....

So when leggings came back the big joke was stirrup pants wouldn't be far behind. Do you think this is a leadway into stirrup pants making a comeback?

I see a difference between peep-toe tights and stirrup pants (mainly I would wear the first not the later), does anyone else?

Regardless, I'm shopping right now for a few pairs. Will post back accordingly

I guess another word for these can be "toeless tights"...

i did a google search and found these on www.pantyhose-stockings-hosiery.com
"Gerbe Collant Fame Toeless Tights"

here's a link to a bigger pic

i'm thinking the non-stirrup versions look far better...
they're more of a departure from the 80s look and I think look much better with shoes..
i think showing your bare heel and having that stirrup showing through would just look funny these days...

^^do the h&m pairs have the heel cut out or just the toe area?
i'm wondering which version is more popular/prevalent..

esile just posted some from american apparel in the colored tights thread that are called "stirrup tights" and they've got the heel cut out like the capezios that i posted above..

*edit - here's a link to the american apparel page http://store.americanapparel.net/rsast.html#i

I think Prada did something similar with their knee-high socks,
but I don't know if they ever made leggings.

I wonder if people are just using footless tights and pulling them over the foot......

Wow, that'd be quite a stretch! I certainly can't do that with mine.

Well I'm short so I could LOL. But I've also seen slouchy footless tights, which would give anyone plenty of room to do that.

head up for any brits, they have these in primark for £6, hanging up with the leggings .. but they are thick tight material (if that makes sense)

I bought a pair on impulse cos they were cheap in black .. but you know i havent worn them yet .. i dont know how to wear them really tbh .. the pic posted so far have given me a few ideas thanks

I thought that until I saw the pics of the ones with the bare heel.. And I actually think that it looks like the girl in post #1 has done that.. Could be wrong though

I'm going to give it a try and see if they stay put...
