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?

Rachel’s whole look works, as usual. Joss’s hair is funky, bold, and cute, but the tights are too much.

I am sorry but sheer red tights are absolutely a NO! The opaque(sorry if I spelled this wrong) are okay but must be worn right!

I hate colored tights- please stick to back or nude!

Rachel Bilson got it right. Joss stone reminds me of a dessert or a lollipop.

they both look like crap but rachel pulls it off

I think Rachel looks so much better. The outfit just looks like it wqas more thought over. Also her tights are a deeper red so the seem to bring the whole outfit out more. In simple terms….
she looks good the other one doesnt. I think I would throw up if I saw that in a store. I would definitly wear Rachels outfit though

I think Rachel looks certainly better than Joss!
Cause Rachel looks chick and sophistocated, and Joss looks like she`s on a halloween party!

Rachel Bilson does it best, without a doubt. Joss just looks a little confused. There is a difference between looking stylish & just looking for attention.

I don’t wear colored tights, unless there the see thru
black tights like Rachel Bilson has on. But, that doesn’t mean no one else can’t pull them off. I think that Josh Stone looks okay with the tights, with the exception of her
shoes. The red doesn’t complement the dress or tights well.

well, I wear colored tights with plain Ugg boots, add a tan suede skirt, a hoodie, and a choice of colorful bag( usually a coach scribble.)
