15 Style Tips On How To Wear Colored Tights

The first time I was really inspired by a pair of colored tights was when I saw Blair Waldorf wearing them on the first season of Gossip Girl. Never before had I coveted a preppy look until I discovered Blair. Her patterned or colored tights made anything she was wearing instantly more interesting – and I vowed to buy a few pairs myself. I did buy a few patterned pairs, but I never got up the courage to buy colored ones. That may change though, after looking at these style tips.

Colored tights can be a little intimidating, but I think that once you start wearing them, you’ll find that they’re not scary at all. They’re perfect for any kinds of weather, also. Our intern Ashley wears colored tights all the time (even in the summer), and her outfits are always fierce. Do you have a pair you want to know how to style? Or do you just want to buy your own so you can put together an awesome outfit? Check out these 15 style tips on how to wear colored tights right now:
