I was honored to receive a request from one of my friends on Facebook yesterday to provide tips on how to wear Ombre Tights. I mean, that’s what I’m here for right?! Now I don’t actually own a pair of ombre tights yet, but after doing the research for this article, I’ll definitely be purchasing some for myself very soon.
The key to wearing ombre tights is to remember your color palette. Don’t think that you’re limited to just the colors that are in the tights…although you can certainly go that route if you choose. I don’t usually like to be too “matchy matchy” as Heidi Klum would say, so I would opt for a color contrast of some sort. Be daring enough to mix and match the colors in the tights with other colors from the color palette that play well. For example, you can absolutely wear a beautiful, deep royal blue dress with ombre tights that fade from a light pink to a deeper magenta color.
A lot of the looks I’ve seen on the internet consist of ombre tights with jean shorts or black mini skirts. Although it’s obvious that you’d want to show off the color fade of the tights, you can just as easily wear a printed dress that falls a little bit above the knee or a pencil skirt (other than black). Again, the key is remembering which colors play well with each other.
You can keep it simple and neutral….
Take a walk on the wild side and pop a little animal print like so….
Or, mix prints with bright colors…
Whatever you decide to do, have fun with it! Until next time!
