Categories:Fashion

Most of the times ladies rushing to work or a meeting commit the very same mistake picking their best dress with the first tights they find. However, you should never underestimate the role of tights, since they do matter in the overall impression and look you create. There is even the danger of failing with your look if the tights are not picked correctly. That’s why here we are going to speak about the basic ways of combining tights with dresses and skirts, introducing the main tips and the main know-hows that you need to know.

15 Tips On How to Combine Tights With Dresses and Skirts

1. There is one universal type of tights that will match any dress and shoes. Those are the options matching the tone of your skin and making it look smoother and softer. So if you are in a hurry and can’t take time to pick the best option, you can always choose this type.
2. If you have a pair of shiny tights, which have the tan tones you’d better stop using them since this is what is considered out-fashioned for quite a while already. You should never opt for tights, which are toned darker than your skin even if you want to look tanned badly. The tone of you tights should be maximum close to the natural tone of your skin.
3. For a tight-fitting dress you should pick seamless tights in order to prevent the upper part from being visible underneath.
4. The strict business style doesn’t allow tights with fishnet texture or with patterns. For a business suit the tone of the tights you choose should be neutral combined with natural texture of smooth, soft, and matte design.
5. The classic Little Black Dress (check out: How to Wear a Little Black Dress) will match just perfectly with tights having arrow-like patterns, which will also visually elongate the look of your legs apart from matching your dress.
6. If you have picked a dress of darker shade matching it with darker toned shoes, you should not wear transparent tights of the universal type we spoke about earlier. For the absolute stun you’d better pick darker tones tights, especially if the dress is made of the warm “wintery” materials, or choose some semi-transparent types if the dress is made of lighter fabrics.
7. There has been an idea that the lighter the dress is, the thinner the tights should be, but now there are more and more girls around breaking this principle going for silk guipure dresses with thick black tights in fall. The tone of the shoes should preferably be matched with the tone of tights, but there’s nothing wrong if they don’t match either.
8. One never-do is the combo of the white boots with black tights or black boots with skin-toned tights.
9. It’s not only the white tights, but also the other colorful options that visually widen your legs, so if you want to slim your legs you need something like the black types or tights in dark gray, dark navy, brown, dark green, etc. If the tights match exactly with the tone of your shoes, this will again elongate your legs.
10. If you opt for printed tights, you should match them with classic black, white, or gray dresses. So if you have no doubts about your taste then you can boldly go for the various combos of printed tights with dresses.
11. In addition, if you want to match printed tights with your dress the latter should be monotone. This way you will fix the attention on your legs, which also means that the shoes should also visually elongate your looks.
12. One thing that you should avoid with printed tights is picking options where the print visually cuts the leg in two horizontal lines or with colorful transitions. This makes your legs shorter and wider.
13. One important thing that you should also know is that the colors of tights and the dress should be balanced and put in harmony with each other, but it’s not compulsory that they come colored exactly the same way. Still, you shouldn’t take it as a must to match a yellow dress with yellow tights (this will even look weird). However keep in mind that a blue dress, for instance, is not the best option for pink tights. On the other hand, gray options will be ideal for that shade of dresses.
14. For the classic retro looks you can’t do without the tights with polka dots. This pattern looks great for any legs when taken with the tiny type of the dots. Still, you should be careful with the lager sized dots.
15. Open-toe booties or boots will look nice even with thick tights if you keep the principle of picking options, which do not have some seams or other details on the toe.
