So what do we think of these?
I have to admit, I kind of love them although they may be overly trendy. They're an affordable version of the ones that appeared on the Chanel runway way back in Fall 2008.
I really liked the way they looked then, but was not about to pay whatever Chanel was asking for tights (I don't know how much it was, I didn't even bother to try to find out because I knew the answer was "too much," even if they did have that precious double-C logo.) But these? These are definitely within the range for a good, look-changing accessory, even if it's only for one season.
I'm liking the idea of them with my black Miu Miu mary janes (still going strong several seasons later) or some ankle boots or some other footwear player yet to be named, with a swingy little skirt or even some long-ish tailored shorts and a good jacket.
There are a lot of good tights happening this fall -- full-footed tights, not just leggings, thank heaven. I've always enjoyed a great pair of colored tights, they are an easy, unbeatable way of adding interest to an outfit without spending a fortune or going overboard. Now if the temperature around here would just drop below 90º, maybe I could actually wear some...
