If there's one thing you should know about me, it's that I'm going to wear a skirt or dress no matter how cold it is. I grew up in a school uniform, meaning that even in the depths of winter, every day required a miniskirt and a smile. That mentality fully stuck with me, and to this day, I don't really feel dressed when I'm in pants.
Having a shoe collection that aligns with my love for tights is so important, and I like to think I've mastered it. I've rounded up seven shoes-and-tights pairings I swear by. Below, find the best shoes and tights combos. You'll want to shop this one.
1. Ballet Flats
This is the shoe trend that isn't going anywhere. Delicate and dainty, these flats fully embrace the balletcore rhetoric. While most people think of them as a fall or spring shoe style, they look damn good with tights.
I'm going to go ahead and name the rise of platform pumps one of the biggest fashion moments I've ever witnessed. One of the greatest joys that go along with being a fashion editor is watching trends start on the runway and end up on the feet of everyone you know and their mothers. Since this shoe trend is so big, I highly suggest you wear it into winter with tights.
4. Snow Boots
If you don't have a pair of pointy-toe pumps in your closet by now, I guarantee you won't regret testing out the trend in 2023. Whether it's a romantic dinner or a night on the town, you'll be glad you chose to wear these.
6. Chelsea Boots
7. Lug-Sole Boots
These are the kind of stompers that most people might not think to wear with tights. Surprise them all by pairing a grungier pair of boots with a good pair of tights.
