Fashion Rules: Suspender Tights

As much as we love suspender tights, there’s no denying they can be tricky to get right if you don’t know the rules.  Last week, Reveal magazine came to the rescue of bemused fashionistas who couldn’t work out why the hottest new trend just wasn’t working for them, and created a list of Dos and Don’ts for the stuggling fashion bunnies out there.  Thankfully, the rules are the same basic guidelines we follow without thinking whenever we don a standout accessory: KEEP. IT. SIMPLE.  As fashion legend Coco Chanel once said: “When accessorising, always take off the last thing you put on.”  We’re pretty sure this basically means “don’t overdo it” – obviously don’t follow this rule exactly, especially if the last thing you put on was your coat.  Brr.

Reveal suggests keeping your look simple by sticking to block colours to really let the tights stand out, and to not ad

d too much extra “stuff” – yes, we’re looking at you, Rihanna.  They also recommend choosing shoes in the same colour for extra leg-lengthening properties, to try styles with sheer black tops instead of nude for better coverage, get the right size, and act confident.

This is all stuff you know already- simply apply it to your suspender tights to nail the trend.  We also recommend taking a look at variations on the classic suspender tights as they seem to be the way forward for this trend – we especially love the embellished Pearly Suspender Tights and the Trasparenze Aukland Tights, with their super cool leopard print design.

However you wear them, you’re guaranteed to blend in with the fashion crowd – suspender tights are here, and they’re not going anywhere soon!
