Readers recently had a discussion on what color tights to wear with navy skirts – and I agree with the general consensus, which is black tights, and black shoes. Another iteration of that sentiment is to have your tights match EITHER your skirt or your shoes — so in theory it could be navy skirt, navy tights, and black (or red, or purple, or some other color) shoes.
The main problem with this is that good navy tights are really hard to find — they’re never quite the right color, and it’s hard to match them to a sedate navy suit. So I was intrigued when I noticed that Falke makes a number of sedate but colorful tights in two deniers, opaque and semi-opaque for $35-$50.
Hunting for something more affordable? These $17 Amazon tights have 7700+ great reviews, and come in 29 (!) different colors, including numerous shades of dark blue — but they do look a lot less matte than the Falke tights.
Know your office before wearing them, but I think that colorful tights can be a nice pop of color for work outfits — and a monotone outfit can be really sophisticated in a color that isn’t the usual black or beige (you can see examples of both here). Readers, what are your thoughts?
