Tights Are All About the Color Rage

Happy Tuesday Ocean Dreamers!

So this post is another assignment for my Fashion class, Special Events & Fashion Promotion. I am supposed to do a "mock" layout for a live blog that we hope to have in the spring for Orange Coast College's Fashion department located in the OC. I thought why do a "mock" up version when in fact I have a real blog? So here you go!

Lately I have been seeing tights all over campus, work, and everywhere!
They are definitely in style and work perfectly for the winter time. You can keep your legs covered while staying warm! I personally have a lot of tights in my closet, I love pairing them with a shorter dress or longer shirt, they are so comfy and chic!

I came across quite a few pictures of extreme tights that have many sorts of patterns, designs, and colors. It seems like there is a color rage that is emphasized in our fashion world right now!

I like them and would definitely wear them with a white, tan, or black top or dress. However, not all of us would like to wear tights that scream look at me! :)

What do you think? Would you wear these tights?




These tights aren't as flashy but I loved the pink heels that set them a part!








I really liked how this web site worded the tight trend:

"The choices are fantastic. Everything from fishnets to tassels, glittering, shining, sparkling. Or maybe you prefer a snakeskin pattern? A scroll work design? Plaid? Comic book patterns? Tie dyes? Rainbows? Camouflage? Any way you look at it, the tights of today are available in a vast array of colors & styles to make you think twice before being able to choose just one…or two…or three…"

I love tights and hope you do too! Go and spice up your school, work, or going out wardrobe now!

XOXO,

  6. i could definitely use some tights to liven things up a bit. i love wearing skirts in the fall/winter and tights always seem to make things interesting. those flower tights are a bit much for me. Maybe if I were younger (I'm 30)...or Carrie Bradshaw!

  11. I love tights but I haven't tried wearing the colored ones...it's always plain black or patterned black for me. One of these days, maybe I'll venture into colored tights.
