We love patterned tights! There, we said it. Patterns make it really easy to add depth to your outfit with their intricate patterns and designs. We’ve selected a few of our favourites at the moment and here is how we wear them…
Diamond print is bold and classic, and the Charnos Diamond Stripe Tights pattern is quite visible. For this reason, it is important to maintain uniformity with your clothing so as to not overwhelm the outfit. A single colour skirt or shorts will add the coverage you need without distracting from the diamond pattern. Keep your shoes simple to maintain the focus on your legs.
These Pretty Polly Chevron Cable Tights add more coverage so we like to save them for foggy and rainy days. Pair them with a white lacy dress or an eyelet skirt to keep some summer flair in your outfit. If you want to add colour to your outfit, a colourful, lightweight scarf or bright jewellery will do the trick without confusing the ensemble.
While the Charnos Diamond Net Tights are not artwork tights, they have a fine design that reminds me of an artist’s careful hand. However, this pattern is what makes it so versatile for the winter and summer months. Try pairing a pastel coloured dress with them and simple flats for a spring outfit on a cooler day. For a bolder look, a bright coral t-shirt dress would be perfect for a summer night out.
However you choose to wear your diamond and chevron patterned leg-wear, be sure to leave a comment telling us how you did!
There is nothing I enjoy more than finding a new, wacky print to add to my ever-growing collection but I often find myself struggling on how to style them. Luckily for you, after much trial and improvement on how to work this look flawlessly I am now here to spread the news. You too will be able to achieve a day to night wardrobe sensation (you’re welcome).
At the moment I am particularly taken with the Pamela Mann Paisley Net Tights because with the correct outfit they can be worn in the office or out on the town. What more could you want?!
Although these tights are black don’t be fooled into thinking that black can only be worn in the evenings. Get your office look in line by teaming these with a pastel skater skirt (we are loving turquoise/blue/teal this season) and a black button down blouse. Splashes of colour keep the tights day time appropriate but also classy enough to wear to your next meeting. Keep your footwear simple with some black pumps that don’t distract from the pattern, see our Polyvore account for more great ideas!!
To take these tights into the night it is important that you keep the rest of your outfit pattern and print free to avoid clashing or overdoing it. Less is definitely more on this occasion! We decided that these paisley lace tights look absolutely gorgeous teamed with a black panelled skater dress and black heels to accentuate those gorgeous legs. The flowing hemlines of a skater dress will ensure there is enough femininity to this jet black montage. We recommend keeping your makeup fairly natural as the paisley print is enough of a statement and the all black outfit should be kept clean and simple.
Last but certainly not least is how to style these for a casual day time look, somewhere between office appropriate and evening wear. I think these paisley tights look really stylish with a gray skater skirt and a crop top with a simple coloured jacket. This look is casual and due to the colours all being simple/pastels/ nothing too outrageous or bright, it still has the spotlight on the paisley tights.
I hope this has helped you take one pair of tights to new heights and lots of different looks! Comment below on how you would wear these paisley print tights.
