Lookbook: Dusty Green

Warning: Very blue tights ahead.

LOL!

When I opened my package from We Love Colors, I was a bit iffy because I wasn't sure if I could pull off these blues. They look so, I don't know, BLUE. And not sure if it was my kind of blue...

But, here I am with my lookbook and I actually did end up really liking them! They call this "Dusty Green" but it looks really blue to me. Although when I came downstairs in this outfit my husband exclaimed "Those are some minty green legs!" so maybe it's just depends on the lighting.
What I'm Wearing:
Cardigan: ASOS
Top: J Crew Tissue Tee
Skirt: Unknown (from Australia)
Tights: We Love Colors
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Pearl Necklace: J. Crew

Savvy says "hello!" :)

I own a lot of tights, I buy them everywhere from Target, Forever 21 to Nordstrom. I can really tell the quality of tights and these We Love Color tights are some of the best quality that I've ever owned. They are thick and stretchy and don't feel like they are going to run if you just pull it wrong. That's my problem with my favorite DKNY tights. Those things run even if you just look at them the wrong way! I end up buying DKNY tights in bulk because I run each pair after almost every other wear, it's irritating to say the least. Anyway, I think I got a lot of attention from my very blue (green) legs that day, I don't think anyone in my office building has ever worn or seen tights in this color!

  2. I have to say I immediately love these. I love a pop of color, even if it is something as obvious as a pair of tights!

  5. Wow tiffany! I love the tights. Although, may I suggest you try wearing them with something else. The black makes the contrast too stark. Perhaps wearing it with other pastel colours but you may not like the all-over ethereal look.
    Still, gorgeous "dusty green" :)

  6. Very cute! Although I agree w/ you. They are more blue than green.

  7. Wow! I love that pop of color, but I cannot pull those off. I tried on light gray tights the other day and could not even do those (but they were poor quality, uneven-toned Banana Republic ones). I was about to order these online in a dark gray using your free shipping code but wasn't sure about the quality, since they are pricey for tights compared to say, H&M or Forever21. Glad to know!

  8. oooh, free shipping at we love colors? i have been wanting to try them out. exciting! i am seeing these as a really pale blue. almost turquoise. they are super cute! i've been totally into bright tights lately- who cares if you get a few strange looks, probably just from people who could never rock them themselves ;)

  9. i must say the tight color is unique and it turned out well with your outfit! Great job Tiff.!

  10. I think you wore them wonderfully! When people (myself included) wear super bright tights with non-neutrals, it more often than not does not work. You made a very good choice to pair those puppies up with black and grey :).

  11. You look darling as always!
    The tights looks blue to me and I agree with you with DKNY tights, they're just so delicate.

  15. totally mint chocolate chip green!

    what's the waistband on these like? Are they comfy? Wide? Low-rise? I hate when the waistband goes up too high and is too thin and hurtful!

  17. Love the tights and am thinking about ordering some. I have a question though, I usually size up for opacity in tights and am wondering if you did in these?

  19. You are too cute! I think you really can pull off the blue tights, but I know what you mean. Living in NYC when everyone is wearing black it's a little scary to go with such a bold color. You nailed it, love it.
