Tights seem like something your grandmother told you to slip on because your ankles are showing. But I’m here to show you that tights CAN be trendy, so here are 3 trendy ways to style tights (that you never thought of).
My Inspiration to Style Tights
Korean street fashion is seriously #lifegoals! It’s cute, trendy, and polished. All three of these outfits were inspired by various Kpop idols and random people on the street.
I think it was about six months ago when I saw the first Instagram post of fishnet stockings and socks paired with ripped jeans and a pair of oxford shoes. Lua from Le-Happy since then has posted multiple shots of this style and I fell in love. I’ve been following Lua P. for almost six years now. Her Lookbook account was totally #goals!
Using her outfits as inspiration, I’m going to pair these flesh-toned stockings under a ruffle skirt for a cool girly vs. grunge contrast.
Colored tights are a statement piece that if done wrong could lead to serious clown vibes. But done the right way it can be the perfect street style outfit. I love pairing colored tights under monochrome outfits. This look is simple and super chic- not like your five-year old more is more self with rainbows and glitter and seven layers of necklaces.
Or you can play with color and have an all pastel outfit.
keep it simple!
Worn under shorts and paired with a button-up for a cute and polished look, paired with sandals
or worn with distressed skirt or shorts with a graphic tee and beanie for a cool 90s and grunge look, finish off the look with combat boots or platform boots.
There are seriously a hundred ways to style tights (and maybe even more). Whether you’re styling them for some extra warmth or using them for a pop of color, don’t forget to rock them with confidence!
