The weather is getting cooler so I’m resorting to colored tights to give me a pop in my daily look. I’ve been watching reruns of Gossip Girl and Blair Waldorf really sold this trend for me (and her minions apparently!). I know, Alberta Ferretti had colored tights in Milan back in 2003 and Balenciaga showed blue tights during fashion week back in 2007. Since then, it’s been made mainstream by American Apparel with a pair in every rainbow color. But I still wanted to give it a try to give it a winter 2012 signature, even if I risk looking like bumble gum packaging. Runway Daily gives a good gallery of colored tights on the runway and Chictopians like Hailydaily and Mwa_Mwa also inspire me with the way they incorporated colored tights into their wardrobe.
Let’s see if I can start a trend.
And for all you ladies that are inspired by my fabulous colored tights pairing, or want to buy me another color to add to my collection of blue, red, pink, and gray, here are some on my wishlist.
