red tights


photos (clockwise): 1) red tights, 2) red tights, 3) untitled, 4) corner

I bought some good quality red tights here the other day and found these pictures on flickr to give me some inspiration. As soon as I figure out how to wear them maybe I'll post my own picture. Red is one of my favorite colors in the world, but there is a thin line between looking ridiculous in bright tights and looking striking.

wow you are really brave...red is actually the color I loathe the most in the world lol..but I think that is because my chocolate skin can't handle it as well as you :)

i love (sigh) colored tights! red, hot pink, purple, turquoise...i'm wearing a grey/mauve pair as i write this. it might sound odd, but i used to wear them with a textured black pair over (fishnet, flower, that kind of thing) so that the color isn't so shocking. it looks like your red pair is too think for that, but perhaps with a thinner type, a way to ease yourself in.

so glad that fall is here. hooray! i think i'll go have some of that hot cocoa you mentioned.

:)

This is why I wish I was a kid.. They never look bad in stuff like that. I swear all the clothes I want are things I wore when I was little.

I know what you mean! I see all these neat patterned tights in bright colors in the stores, and I want to wear them so badly, but then I think, no, I’m not six years old anymore.

love the red tights! they were beautifully styled for Alyson Fox's A Small Collection this season....

i agree with you about the fine line on red - maybe you can find a way to incorporate the stylish red into your winter collection :)

i purchased some pink tights the other day.
i love them, but when people tell me i'm very colorful i don't really know whether or not it is a compliment.
i'm going to say yes haha.

Looks like you had a wonderful week. I would love to visit Portland some day especially at this time of the year.

Can't wait to see how you style your outfits around those lovely red tights!

Haha, I agree. I have a pair of marigold tights and I always feel really silly in them even though so many people pull them off so well.

i think you should pair them with brown wool or solid print heavy cotton...brown+red=myfavoritecolorcombo!

I love the red tights - I saw the inspiration pictures yesterday and just had to get a pair. I got red tartan tights and they are soooo cool. I am wearing them with a dark grey denim mini dress and black ballet flats. I must say I've had some interesting looks this morning. But most people seemed amused - or at least bemused! I used to wear bright red tights as part of my school uniform so I'm no stranger to brightly coloured legs!
