How to Wear Colored Tights and Stockings
As you’ve already noticed, the main fashion items that change in each season are the accessories. When you’re refreshing your wardrobe with a new handbag, a new pair of shoes, or even a pair of colorful tights, it makes you more excited to match them with what you’ve already got.
Investing in tights in different colors and prints are a great way to refresh and diversify your outfits.
Here are some tips on how to match and wear them with style!
If you choose to wear colorful tights, there are some things you should avoid – they won’t quite match with colorful dresses with big prints (the tights are already colored). When wearing block colored tights, opt for shoes in neutral shades.
Wearing tangerine tights would be the most fashionable look for this winter. To avoid looking like you dressed for Halloween, don’t wear them with black clothes, but with a darker browns or other lighter colors. If you’d rather be adventurous, a shocking color mix with contrasts can offer you a dynamic, astonishing look. In this case, you can try plaid prints with colored tights and a pair of boots.
The red tights are the ones call for black and may be the easiest way to create a winter holiday look.
Matte or glossy tights? Well, the matte ones will make you look slimmer, but the shiny ones look glamorous and classy.
Natural and black tights emphasize your clothes and gorgeous legs. It is the easiest way to create a sophisticated but still polished look and keep your legs warm during the cold season, while looking very trendy.
There are three simple ways to match them to your outfit:
– match the tights with your dress or shoe color. – choose to make contrasts and wear yellow shoes to a purple dress for example; or primary colors, which will make the contrasts even bigger. – wear plaid print tights and keep your clothes neutral and simple for a preppy look.
Also, pay attention to your body shape! Bright colored tights are best worn by girls with long slim legs; just keep in mind, the thicker the legs, the darker the tights.
If you want to create the illusion of longer and slimmer legs, try purple/plum shades. You can match them with neutral shades, lighter browns, or even nude, camel colored wools for winter.
Also, you can get the same slimmer, longer illusion of legs if you match them to your shoes’ color – the effect will instantly elongate your legs.
Neon colored tights are more extreme and easy to match with jeans and boots.
A more important thing to pay attention to would be the prints.
Try to avoid big prints, horizontal stripes, or very colored printed tights.
These will thicken your legs and are very hard to match. If you still decide to wear printed tights, just keep the rest of your look as simple as you can.
