My friend once posed this question to me;

Can we talk about tights and if they are still a fashion do, plus what type the colored printed, thick or light. And the ultimate should they be worn with peep toes-stockings.

Apparently she was soo disturbed when she saw a lady wearing strappy heels with stockings, that she could not concentrate in an interview..lol :). i shouldn’t av added that part..lol..Well this is one tricky question to answer. Tights are one timeless fashion item to have in your closet. Everybody should have a pair in neutral colors in your drawers for any occasion. But the question comes in, can tights or stockings or socks be on with any types of shoes??? Basically tights or stockings can be worn with any types of closed shoes like this one;

simple black tights with red heels

The tricky part comes in when you may want to wear your peep toe shoes or open shoes with your classic tights or stockings. Different people have different views on this topic but personally I think you can, but depending on what type of open shoes you are going to wear. You can wear peep toe shoes with stockings and tights. For an added plus you can throw in a colored pair of socks.

wearing tights with closed or peep toes can be acceptable

But fashion NO NO’s will be wearing your tights, stockings or colored socks with strappy heels or slip on shoes or even worse SANDALS. I once saw that in town and I cringed in horror. How do you do that to yourself..REALLY!!! That is a major fashion Faux Pas.i never liked it because it just looks odd and untidy. So please ladies stay away from that. Just my opinion.

Away from that you could add lots of color and fun to your shoes by wearing colored tights, stockings and even socks to bring a little bit of edginess to your rather dull outfits. So I decided to take some pics over the weekend to illustrate this.
