Would You...

wear patterned tights?














My SIL Les and I saw these in TJ Maxx and we were smitten! We dabbled on the idea of buying a pair or two for ourselves (just $7 a pair) but decided we weren't really the type to wear such. It would just end up stored in the sock drawer or worn under jeans or pants, thus defeating the purpose. Cute though right?

Wait, wait, wait. I think this will look cute paired with my ankle length pants. Just a peek of pattern by the ankle. Hmmmm...

raissa said...

I thought those were cute too and once in awhile I wonder how I will look wearing it but I dont think I am the type too or maybe I just dont have the guts to give it a try LOL

These look like a lot of fun, but I'm wary of overly bright patterned tights; my legs are pretty muscular and I don't want them to look disproportionately chunky!

I'd wear them :) But then I've always been a walking fashion victim so even if this is a cool trend, it will still look disastrous on me LoL

Apple said...

Hmm, I may not be able to carry it. :) I like to have some textured ones, though. :)

I'm liking the Nicole Miller and Betsey Johnson tights!

Printed tights are pretty tricky to wear though. It really depends on your leg shape if you can pull it off or not.

I loooove printed and colored tights! I wear them a lot even if I live in sweltering hot Manila haha I want those Nicole Miller ones! TJ Maxx? Hmm I might just ask my relatives to look for these. :)

Btw, I got myself a new dress from the All Saints sale! Thanks for the heads up. Did you get anything? :)

Hi Jacki! I'm curious, what do you wear them with?

I share your sentiments Raissa!

Yeah that's what I thought Lisa. They look like so much fun to wear, it's tempting!

Ing, Ms. Preview style icon! With your long legs you can get away with these!

Yes Apple! Textured ones are a good alternative to both plain and patterned tights.

You're right Shockboogie. They're quite tricky to wear, it's a thin line between cute and crass!

That's a cute combo Ann Cas!

Go for it Joie! I love how you can just say yes!

Those cartoon ones are cute nga Ruby! Cute din plaid! Carry mo kasi patterned tights!

You're welcome Joni! I just got a scarf, still thinking if I should get dresses. But I have so many things I want I can't decide! Hahaha!

Oh! I want to know how to get those patterned tights here in Makati! :) Especially the betsey johnson and plaid ones! :)

Thank you!

totally! I usually go the monochromatic route, but I would do maybe the first flowered pair or the tartan plaids. I usually wear colorful tights with plain black shifts and sweaterdresses. I'd imagine the tartan plaid would look cute with a skirt that's cut like a kilt but is a solid color.

if you're iffy about it, start with monochromatic patterned tights then slowly ease yourself into colored territory :-)

Hi Pearl.. I think you can order thru shopspot.multiply.com

I get my kikay stuff from them. :)

Good luck!
