Who Got It Right? Red Tights Can Be Tricky

02/07/2007 at 02:00 PM ET

Colored tights can be a tricky trend for the savviest fashionista — what to pair them with? how not to make your legs look larger than necesary? — and it’s pretty bad when you get it wrong. Joss Stone is always out there with her clothing choices, and her appearance at the Monday night Marc Jacobs show was no different. A few tips for Joss: a) don’t wear textured tights with a textured dress, b) wearing mini dresses with colored tights is too much of a good thing and c) never match the color of your tights to your shoes — and hair! Rachel Bilson gets it right, keeping her red tights matte and everything else black so there is just a hit of bright color. Tell us: How do you wear colored tights?

I think Rachel definitely pulls think look off better! Even though I love Joss’s hair I don’t think her red (pink) tights.

Rachel Bilson looks gorgeous! The red tights are perfect with her outfit! She looks so glam. Joss Stone looks icky. I don’t like her look at all!

Oooh, I LOVE Rachel’s look.. she’s so hip and put together at the same time. You can tell that she “gets” fashion, unlike a lot of other young starlets.

I actually wore red tights one Christmas for a party about 3 years ago. I loved them. I think they’re really fun.

I love Joss’s hair, dress & shoes, but the tights are TOO much! She looks very cute though. Rachel looks fantastic! No complaints there!

LKD on

Are you kidding me??? Rachel looks SO SO SO much better than Joss! If anyone thinks that Joss looks good you are crazy! Her hair and everything looks BAD!

I think they both have great, unique styles – ones that I certainly couldn’t pull off but completely respect their ability to try new things and pull away from “the norm”. Rachel though is always one of my favorites, she makes red tights work!
