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?

Yes, both girls look great. It is OBVIOUSLY 2 totally different styles. (So maybe they put the 2 pics together to create conflict?!) – Both are trendy (not that it matters) and sexy. The more silky Pantyhose the better!

I think both look great dressed in their red hose. I wish more women wore fashion hose like that. They are setting the example that more women should follow.

Wearing a mini with colored tights too much of a good thing? Never! And unless it’s proven to cause blindness or some other medical condition, matching your shoes to your tights should constitute a fashion faux paux. I agree with the author – Rachel got it right. The matte tights add the right contrast to the rest of the outfit. Overall I think both ladies pulled off their ensembles very well, and it’s a refreshing change of pace from bare leg and flip-flops infestation.

Wats up wif joss? Wats wif her red hair n tights? She doesn’t seem like she’s being herself here. Totally wrong. I love rachel’s style. She’s always kinda laidback n chic. I hate joss. She critisizes Mariah Carey. She’s no better herself. She’s just, yuck!

No offence to anyone, but both tights are discusting, they don’t look flattering on either of them, and pink isn’t red.
