white tights




After seeing this look, I decided to test drive a pair of off-white tights from Hansel from Basel, which I got on sale here.  I had to bring some color into the look of course, and I figured out that wearing white tights with white Chucks is definitely not for me!  Way too grade school.  In the end I decided that these tights are the perfect transitional piece, a great way to stay warm (still so cold in NY!) while lightening my color palette for spring.

LOVE the outfit, jenny! hansel from basel makes the best wool tights around, though they do run quite small.

these look great! i have some white tights, but they somehow don't come across as tights... just as ghostly white legs. and, my legs ARE ghostly white, but not quite as white as the tights make them appear, haha.

i think i need to find some with some more texture to them, like yours.

you look adorable! i'm always afraid white tights will make my legs look huge (not to sound vain). this gives me the gusto to try it.

I like the white tights with color. Very cute. With all white they look a bit like an old fashioned nurse. Or a little toddler girl at Easter. Have a great day!

Oh my! I'm so proud to be a fellow member of the white tights club! They look great with your boots too. I'm definitely going to start wearing mine with some spring pieces now - that look is UNSTOPPABLE.
