Hi Friends,
How’s tricks? I got this lovely dress from OASAP last week and thought it was a perfect way to bring out my red tights as I’ve not wore them in yonks
I did get an e-mail recently asking for advice about how to style tights so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity for me to give a few tips to anyone wanting to incorporate tights into their wardrobe.
How to Style Tights:
  • Dresses are not just for summer, so get some tights on wear them all year round. Example.
  • Tights are a perfect way to style ‘down’ a dress. The can make a real difference to transforming a dress from a causal outfit, to something you wear in the evening. I have plenty of dresses that I will wear heels and go barelegged in on a special occasion, but switch out for black tights and flat shows for a more causal look. Example.
  • Spice up a boring all black outfit with coloured tights. I really love dark purple, navy blue, grey or red. Example.
  • Tights are always a fab way to make monochrome or coloured block more exciting. Example.
  • Tights with patterns on them also look fab with colour blocking or all black or grey outfits. You may wan to pair them with patterned outfits but I would keep at least the skirt/shorts one colour or monochrome. 
  • Black tights with detail are a great way to dress up an outfit. Example.
  • You can pick out a colour from an outfit and work with that. I can make the outfit seem ‘softer’, example, or ‘bolder’, (example) depending on what colours you pick.
  • You don’t have to stick with dresses, you can wear tights with skirts, dungarees and shorts also.
  • I prefer footed tights to footless, as they do not restrict your footwear.
  • Best places to buy tights for the best price – Primark and Tesco.

  1. Hi Corinne, your tips are flawless. I like to wear tights in winter (I suffer the cold so I dont get women who do not use them) and I think they could add a stylish touch to the look, especially if they got patterns or are colored. Your dress is too cute! xo

  2. Love this dress on you, how fun. I adore the colour of your tights and your tips are great. styling tights is often something I have trouble with so for most of the year I just wear clear tights. i have a nice pair of purple tights i need to bring out and style.

  3. I’ve always been a fan of tights. I love various colors and patterns. They can really change an outfit. Great dress!

  4. Oh I love this! I have quite a few colored tights and haven worn them because wasn’t sure how to exactly style them! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I have lots of coloured tights but I nearly wear them because I prefer black or flesh colour. You combined very well your dress with that pair of red tights. Kisses:)

  6. I’d be lost without my tights! I’m in need of a whole bunch of new ones though! Tis my goal for the weekend! I’m in love with Primarks thermal tights, they saved me so much over winter!Sarah 🙂

  7. I do love the look of hosiery. I have worn both stay-up stockings and stockings with suspender belts but thus far have not worn pantyhose or tights, but If I wore skirts in winter I would most definitely have a drawer full of tights. I do love how they look and would add that I have seen them worn by themselves without skirts or trousers (stimulating)! I like the colour of the tights you styled in your outfit above and how the red of your tights matched the red in the print on your pretty skirt. I also love seeing tights styled with contrasting but complementary colours. In every one of the outfits in your previous posts your tights were styled beautifully with your outfit of the day.

  8. That dress is so nice with the bright tights! 🙂

    I’m not very adventurous with my choice of tights, I have grey ones and black ones, haha! I wear them mainly for warmth in winter, I really like the cosy fleece lined ones! 🙂
