Colored Tights 3 Ways

I’ve been intrigued by colored tights for a while, but I was always hesitant to buy some since I didn't know if I would actually wear them. But during my trip to Germany I picked up red Falke Soft Merino tights at the airport of all places. The tights felt soft and seemed warm and just called my name. I like that they are bold but not too bold (they actually look brighter in the photos than in real life).

The tights definitely pushed me to the edge of my comfort zone, especially since I paired them with my “witch boots,” as Andy and the kid lovingly refer to them. I’ve had the boots for about ten years and enjoy wearing them once in a while. But they are a bit more edgy than my usual shoes...

I first paired the tights with a grey knit skirt, black tunic, and grey sweater. The tights add a pop of color to the outfit.

Next, I repeated the red of the tights in a red tunic. It’s a bit matchy matchy as is, but a coat or blazer may change that...

Finally, I tried some color blocking, with my cobalt blue sweater and a cobalt scarf.

I threw on a grey blazer before we went out.

The tights are definitely a change from what I normally wear, but it’s fun experimenting with them, and I look forward to playing with them some more soon.

Questions: Do you wear colored tights? If so, which colors do you own? 

Be Well,
