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 def think the colored tights look better when the same color is in the dress, shirt or skirt they are wearing cause it will bring it out. my daugther wore a black velvet dress with a fushia sash so i got her fushia stockings to go with and it looked great! i got so many compliments from that choice.
