    i wear footless tights, that cut off at the ankle before my shoes start (i couldnt find them anywhere so i had to make them though)

    ive only worn them with stilletos, not sneakers...thats a bit odd, but kind of cool.

    too cold though..

    i use to wear footless tights in the 80's :blush: often enough to last for a lifetime :lol:

    i've seen girls wearing extreme roll up jeans -levis engineered- with legwarmers (too popular over here) and original ballet shoes in powder pink (without socks :shock: )

    footless tights are everywhere (like on shopwindows)
    but not too many girls actually wearing them on the street

    can you actually wear ballet shoes outside? (without ripping holes into the bottom?)

    it's called return of the eighties. look at some old videos and you will see tons wearing footless tights.

    as for the ballerina shoes...i use to wear them all the time, but that was 15-20 years ago and yes they would only last a couple weeks, but then we just put cardboard in them and kept wearing them until not another safety pin could hold them together.

    A lot of girls wear footless thights here, but mostly with heels and not that much on the street, more for clubbing. You see them everywhere in the shops in lots of different colors.

    About the employees who have to wear clothes from the shops they work in......when I was studying I worked as a sa at Miss Selfridge and we had to pick something from the shop in the morning. We would wear it during the day and put it back in the evening :doh: :wacko: :yuk:

    EVERYONE I go to school with wears those damn tights. it was kind of cool at first, when only some of the more quirky/fashionable people wore them. now the people who are painfully trendy wear them...that's when you know a trend has died. cut off tights, off the shoulder shirts/sweaters, ugg boots, and big plastic earings all have been worn to death at my school. happy to say i've never sported the tights. :p

    the footless tights are creative. you dont want to over do it... you want keep it relatively simple. the tights, some chunky necklaces or a varity of chain necklaces and hot shoes and its a great outfit.

    And as for the footless tights, leggings it will be a trend but who cares as long as your make it your own, right? I mean if you do go into an Abercrombie or Hollister all the girls wear it with the same mini, the same Converse AllStars and a tank with a sweater overtop. ...But look at Rachel McAdams, she does it right.
