Opaque black tights with gold peep-toe shoes - faux pas or super stylish?

My gut reaction is no, but I'm sure I've seen pics in magazines recently where peep-toes were worn with opaque tights.

So, Mumsnet style jury - Yes or No?

Noooo. I don't think so. Maybe silver? Maybe not grin

am also wondering this. surely you can't go out in this weather in a patent peeptoe with no hosiery?

I have done this. Depends on the rest of your outfit and whether your peep toes are more 1993 M&S or something a bit more edgy!

i think sounds nice.depends on the shoes and rest of outfit obviously.

Fitted black dress, black tights, gold peep-toes.

The shoes themselves are lovely, and really don't want to have to put them away till it's warm enough to go out bare-legged!

Seems to me like Grazia etc are full of opaques and peep-toe combos. Go for it. The rest of your outfit sounds very low key so I think it would work.

Sounds gorgeous. I would wear it!. Have you a gold clutch to complete the ensemble?

First instinct is NO! But the shops are full of peep toe boots (WTF?!) so it's probably what all the youngsters are doing these days.

Peep toe boots


Btw, in answer to the op - a resounding no

Hm sounds rather good. I would! And a great way to get a different look from your sandals too.

Opaque tights are lovely. (I like the way they squeeze my legs into better shapeblush)
