I’m really curious to see what you guys think of this trend- exposed underwear, tall socks and oddly patterned tights. A few stars (the most frequent offender I’ve seen is Taylor Momsen) have been parading around with their stockings hanging out! As much as I can try to be like a scolding grandmother, I actually quite like this trend due to my slight obsession with fun socks and tights!

I’ve been to London on a shopping trip recently and I had hoped to find something especially nice, but as it turns out I just spent most of my time (and money) in Topshop – whoops! It can’t be helped really…there’s so much amazing stuff in there. My favourite fun pair were these gorgeous heart tights.

Other fun tights I’ve been coveting are a couple of pairs of Henry Holland tights including these Colour Card tights, which are available in multiple colours.

And these mock Over the Knee tights.

And of course, the knee-high-suspender style, which I think is very clever.

But my love doesn’t end there.  I also absolutely love funky socks, whether they be long, short, colourful or monochromatic.  As long as they look fun, I’m there!

How about these stripy Pamela Mann socks?

Or Little Miss Matched.  They have the most adorable and fun socks around, in my opinion. These limited edition colourful over the knee socks are great to spice up an outfit.

Or as we head to colder times, some fuzzy socks would do nicely to keep one of the most important parts of you warm!

So what do you all think? Going to be taking part in the tights trend, or just sticking to colourful socks?

(I’m afraid I’m not letting you have ‘plain socks’ as an option here, but you’ll just have to put up with that…haha.)

  1. Personally, I like this trend. Kind of a disheveled, bedhead look. Obviously you couldn’t wear it everywhere (could you imagine wearing this to school?!), but for a night out, its cute.

    And I am in love with those Colour Card tights!

  2. I WOULD wear that style everywhere! Including to school, because I already dress like that so I’d just get compliments on how amazing they are, not weird looks. haha =]
    I think I’ll look into purchasing a pair of the mock thigh-hi stockings!

  3. I like this trend a lot, stockinds can give an old-fashioned, vintage sexy, cabaret feel and allow you to play with different patterns and colors, but i think it would be wise to play down the rest of the look, keep it a little conservative or covered on top to keep it from looking too trashy.
