Trend Report: White Tights

The last time you wore tights was probably on the playground in kindergarten, but why not switch out your black tights for a pair of winter whites?*

Rock the White

Still scratching your head about how to wear this trend?

Firstly, start off with a thick, opaque pair of tights. Sheer reads nurse-on-duty (um… ew), but a flat opaque white is oh so mod and a chunky cable-knit is very apres ski chic. I’ve also seen white fishnets done as a very edgy rock-and-roll look, je pense que c’est tres magnifique.

Secondly, unless the majority of your outfit is black, avoid wearing black footwear with white tights. The high-contrast shortens the leg line and makes even the leggiest girls look stumpy. Instead, try white, camel, or any other color in the rainbow.

So why not try…

White with all tan, beige, gray, cream and cognac, or even all white, if you’re less klutzy than me!

A classic look with white blocked by black.

For a cute, retro 60s/70s look, vintage styling with white tights is a perfect match.

Or jump on the latest fashion bandwagon and create a minimalist, sculptural look, my personal favorite.
