Please advise me on the subject of patterned/coloured tights
I have a plain black wrap dress. I know, but I like it, it fits well, is comfy and flattering. I usually wear it with heels or knee high boots. I was thinking I could liven it up a bit by wearing it with either patterned or coloured tights. Am I horribly out of date or might that work? If so what pattern/colour? Not sure I'm brave enough for fishnets and have doubts about the wisdom of purple legs (spend most of winter trying to avoid purple legs )
I'd avoid red personally; they tend to make legs look a bit meat-like if that makes sense. Purple are good; aubergine lovely; teal great; pinstripe M&S ones lovely; Monsoon do some fab crochet type ones. And yellow - never, never - unless you want to look like a strange breed of canary.
