It took me a little while to figure out how to wear patterned tights without looking like I was getting dressed for Halloween. In my opinion, you need to balance out the tights with solid colored items otherwise you will look like you are playing dress up with a 5 year old.
I found these patterned tights at Macy’s and couldn’t wait to add them to my wardrobe. I paired them with a basic black pencil skirt and a satin royal blue top, plus I added my Isadora Pearl Bib necklace. I learned a rule from an old theatre friend a long time ago: wear two plains and a fancy! That’s what you need to remember when wearing these tights, you don’t need five fancies messing up the look. So pairing patterned tights with solid colors will balance everything out. And the tights make a work appropriate outfit so much more fun to wear!
