Lookbook: Colored Tights

I have been slow to jump on the colored tights bandwagon but following some tips from a few other bloggers, I checked out the tights at Target and found some fun options at ridiculously low prices. I think the purple ones were on sale for $2!

What I’m wearing#1:
Blazer: Juicy Couture
Dress: Forever 21
Tights: Target
Boots: Sergio Rossi

The tights look white in the picture but are gray in person. (please excuse the picture, it was a bad face/bad hair picture day and that was the only decent picture!) At first I was going to wear a contrasting dress but settled on the tones of gray which was a good change from the black tights that I typically would have put with this outfit.

What I’m Wearing #2
Dress: Banana Republic
Tights: Target
Shoes: Miu Miu
001 
I put on the purple tights that day to discover that they were footless tights so I tucked them under my heels for a different look. I loved how the bright tights transformed this outfit which could’ve been pretty boring to something fun.

I am now fully sold on colored tights. Love the feature that Who What Wear did. I’m not sure if I can get away with yellow, but the blue and pink I may have to try next.

I am now in Cabo and officially on vacation so won’t be checking email or replying back to comments until I get back. I have some fun guests posts lined up for the rest of the week that I’m very excited about. Hope you all enjoy! Kisses and see you next week!

    i’m all about colored tights and both of these look fabulous on you. i highly recommend the opaque kind at urban outfitters (they have 2/$20) and they have a great pink for you!

    The tights look great! Yay for being daring with those pink ones! I’m not sure about trying blue myself, unless they were navy… it’s a little too easter egg for me.

    Well, don’t you look fantastic! Loving both outfits – I especially like the colour of the tights and how you wore them in the 2nd pic.
    I really like bright tights but no one else wears them in my country (tropical climate so they’re not necessary). I guess I should just wear what I want as long as it’s comfortable.

    Also, I just want to remind you that the contest ends in 10 days if you’re still interested in entering. I hope you will!

    Take care and enjoy the rest of your day dear 🙂

    i wear my footless tights like that too! (sometimes the back of my shoes are a little scratchy so the heel coverage lessens the friction!)
