Sheer tights F/W 05.06



sheer thights are item of the week at style.com (pics stella mccartney fw05, style.com)

what do you guys think?

I'm not sure if I'm ready to give up opaque just yet. I'll freeze without them. but I believe sheer thights are a fresh change for warmer weather.

sheer back thights with colourfull pumps

I like both opaque and sheer depending on the look I'm going for. If it's a bit more 'glam' and sophisticated, i'll opt for sheer. I wasn't really into them until about 4 months ago when isaac mizrahi mentioned he loved 'black sheer tights with a trenchcoat' which i thought was great imagery.

if i'm going for a younger more mod-ish look, i'll stick with opaque.

I never know what to think of this opaque v. sheer thing especially since different magazines say different things.
I wear both....whatever I can get out of my clean laundry...

to be honest, due to their skinny legs and otherworldly features, models look good in sheer black stockings, but for regular folk i think a sheer black stocking looks quite 'early 90's'

i will need some more convincing i think

I saw a girl recently in town...with sheer blue tights like the ones posted above and a satin puffball skirt...she looked like a smurf in a nappy, so certainly not the blue ones for me.

I agree with meg sheers tend to go better as a more sophisticated look, but I love opaque...especially if people are wearing a shortish skirt with boots...it stops it looking tarty. I just really love black opaque tights in general.

like fff said, I think opaque is a good choice with short skirt or shorts.

and now I can't get Meg's "trenchcoat with black sheers" -image out of my head. maybe if I wear it, it'll go away.. (see you at "what are you wearing today"...)

you tell it like it is brian. I agree, opaque will never go out. it's very practical and enables me to wear skirts in the winter without freezing to death. opaque is also nice because it's a bit more casual, go everywhere. sheer tights are interesting though, especially proper seamed ones...very 40s and glam.

I also wear both,depending on the look I'm going for. Can't see myself throwing out the opaques...but I'm happy to hear that I'm not at too much fault occasionally wearing sheer Sometimes,for the balance of an outfit,they are just necessary.

I refuse to believe!! Maybe the fact that I bought 5 pairs of opaques yesterday is swaying my view :p

But, seriously, I don't think opaques will ever go out. It's kin to black imo. Here to stay. I like sheers too though. It's all about the occassion as has already been mentioned

Great thread Urd! Karma for you!

I think sheer tights are perfect for the summer season while opaque are better for fall and begining of winter... Both are nice, but I agree with you on this Trend Spotting.... It's going to be huge......
