Are you red-y?

Monday, November 22, 2010
Does this outfit remind you of anything? Yes, I totally copied this runway look...from three years ago. What can I say? I'm hip and happenin'. Colored tights are always difficult for me...especially coordinating them with shoes. Do you wear colored tights? Leave a link to your outfit post.. I need more ideas!

  2. I, for one, applaud you for the vibrant red tights! I can barely, barely stray away from the basic black ones! Even black lace ones are too much for me! I'm trying though! I really am.. I've even purchased a pair of brown ones, haha!


    Hope you'll stop by again soon! I'm featuring a $55 giveaway and would love it if you'd enter!!

    Totally unlike me normally, but Kendi's 30for30 challenge is pushing me a bit and I like it!

  5. I love this color combination! I must try it out with my own red tights. I wore red tights in one of my posts a few weeks ago. They are quite tricky especially pairing with shoes, but red and black are a classic combo so I don't think you have to worry about that!

  6. So I'm going to have search back a few months since we are now into summer. I wasn't game enough to go for the brighter coloured tights yet, (maybe next winter!) but I did think these steel-ish coloured ones were pretty good.
    I wore them with red boots and a lilac skirt here:

    and this one with a lighter coloured grey skirt :

  7. Loving the red. I definitely wear coloured tights (especially during 30 for 30):

    Multicoloured print

    Bright blue

    Red and spotty

  8. Hah, I also did purple tights recently. For me, wearing boots with colored tights is so much easier. It just breaks it up a lot more.

    You have to scroll down to the bottom of the post to see the picture.

  13. hehe wearing purple tights right now and thinking I should have gone with orange instead.. I usually wear colourful tights.

    Love the red with the neutral tones. Really pops! :)

  14. You are one brave little soul, I have colored ones, yes even red but I do not think I have worn it yet.I love your bag, do you like it??

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hey, I've never gone for bright red but rather stick to more subdued colored tights. I find they are easier to wear! For example:

    Purple:

  29. That red is very bright! I'd pay attention to the lower part of your body first (in this pic), I'm sure people actually look at your eyes when they're talking to you in real life.

    Love the flats, I'm cheap. Anything under 10 and wears well/comfortable = AWESOME. You is v. cute, I just adore you and your blog. If I know more about blog-following thingamajig, I will follow you...I'm a little lazy to log on to my blogging acct right now thou :) :)

  35. The only "colored" tights I have a gray and navy. :) I have that shade skirt though, so I might have to try it with them!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love this outfit! Especially with the trench. I am in love with colored tights... I've been collecting them on clearance sales for years before they became cool (so I paid like .97 cents each!). Now I'm so glad they're in style I'm not the crazy lady in the bright tights. :)

  37. I love the red tights! I think you're interpretation of that look is spot-on!

    I've been obsessed with colored tights lately, but I think my favorite outfit might be this one with the purple tights, or maybe this outfit with teal tights. Though I've also sported yellow, red, and navy recently. (Like I said, I'm a little obsessed.)

    As for shoe pairings, I pretty much stick to the formula of neutral shoes (like you did here) with colored tights.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love your take on the colored tights! Pairing the red against the white and gray is a genius idea! I've been afraid to try colored tights, but this is an inspiring look :)

  40. Works great on you! I love colored tights but don't own any besides gray at the moment. Love the more casual look to this.

  41. I've only started getting into colored tights. I always feel a little too Blair Waldorf-y and I'm unsure if that's a good thing or not.

    I hope you have bacon in that food purse of yours ...

  46. Ahhh yes. Colored tights. I love you. One of my favorite things to do in the fall and winter is spruce up plainer outfits with colored tights. Your outfit is adorable and I love how the red pops out on you.

    I have a pair of bright pink tights I often wear with my favorite turqoise dress and little black dress. :)

  57. I looooove colored tights! I did teal for this pic. http://therecorddish.blogspot.com/2010/11/30-for-30-remix-nine-nine-99.html I'm wearing magenta in the next couple of days!

  58. I have tons of pictures on my blog with tights, though usually patterned, not colored. I suggest a colored pair with texture, they're easier to style:

    http://stephthebird.blogspot.com/2010/11/shkirt.html

    Or pairing them with boots/knee high socks to tone down some of the impact:

    http://stephthebird.blogspot.com/2010/11/thrifting-is-just-better.html

    I usually like to wear a bold color at least one other place in my outfit so the tights aren't too much of a focal point. The whole LOOK AT MY COLORED TIGHTS is hard to pull off, it helps if there's something else drawing the eye.

    If you want a ton more ideas, there's a whole blog about wearing tights you might like, here's the link:

  62. Ahhh, this is so cute! :) I love colored tights. I have 31 different colored/patterned tights. I want it to get colder so I can start wearing them. Here are some aqua ones I did last winter:

    http://thedrawingmannequin.blogspot.com/2010/03/aqua-rose.html

    I agree, shoes and colorful tights is always such an issue! I usually pull a color from the top portion of my outfit or go for a neutral strappy or hole-y kinda shoe so my tights show through. :)

  67. Red is so bold :)
    And I <3 your bag!!! I want one!!!

    Although personally I prefer wearing colored tights with heels and black tights with flats. I think because colored tights don't have that slimming/elongating effect of black tights so they simply make your legs look better when you pair them with heels.

    ReplyDelete
  68. you are so darn fashionable. i like to wear my colored tights with boots so it's not too overwhelmingly bright. like: http://snappycasual.tumblr.com/post/1574991120/7-of-30
