Yes, You Can Pull Off Colorful Tights and Here's How

If there’s one trend that we can’t seem to ignore, it’s colored tights. While you might be used to wearing classic black or sheer pairs of hosiery as a way to keep your legs warm during the colder months, or are partial to a pair of fishnets for an edgy layered look, there’s something about this bright trend that has us looking twice.

Perhaps you thought that this colorful look was reserved for the little ones in your life, but if Balenciaga and Versace have told us anything, adults can get playful with their wardrobes, too. If you aren’t sure how to style these bold tights for your day-to-day life, check out how our favorite style stars nailed the look.

If you're not entirely ready to dive deep into a rainbow of color, an opaque navy is the perfect way to work with color without going out of your comfort zone.
