Tights Mismatch

Well, put this down to something tried that didn't quite work out. I do not like the pattern mixing of these tights with the print on this dress. To be fair, I really didn't want to wear these tights, but for some reason I was stuck on purple tight with this and these were my only ones, so I went for it. I think it's pretty clear I should have worn black tights. The boots just kinda get lost down there at the bottom, and I think with plain black tights, they really would have providing an interesting contrast to the rest of the outfit. Next time...

What I Wore That Was a Mismatch:

2010-12-14 combo
  • dress (Avenue)
  • sweater (Theory via Marshalls)
  • purple harlequin tights (Lane Bryant)
  • grey "suede" boots (Lane Bryant Outlet)
  • brooch (thrift)
  • earrings (??)

I actually really like it! But I'm a big time pattern mix lover. So I would.

Embrace the mismatch. Patterned tights are the best! ;)

it's working and looks fabulous! it's like the tights are an extion of the dress.

Oh, I love the mix! Loving the entire outfit. You look pretty in those colors.

Like the tights just not with the boots. A pump would have looked better in a dark color.


I like the Theory sweater but not sure it fits properly.

The dress is flattering on you.

I actually really like this. I'm not a big pattern mixer but I really like how you did it here. Yes the boots sort of get "lost" but I think they can play background now and then for awesome tights.
