Ways to Wear Colored Tights

Well, fall is in full swing, even if it doesn’t feel like it. It’s gotta be in the 80’s today and people are decorating for Christmas! I know it makes sense and all, I’m just having a hard time getting in the Christmas spirit while wearing shorts & a tank top. And sweating.

But for the rest of the world, with normal fall temperatures,  I thought I would share some fun fall fashion with you. More specifically colored tights! I recently bought a few pairs and just love them. They can add so much to an outfit and you can wear skirts when the weather is cold and not freeze!

Here are some ways to wear colored tights:

Black with color

Blazer: KMart // Shirt: Gap // Skirt: Charlotte Russe // Shoes & Tights: Target // Necklace: Boutique – it’s super special

Let’s start with an easy way to do it. It’s pretty safe to wear all black with some colored tights. And I love this look! These pictures were taken while shopping in France. It really was a beautiful city! It was a little fancy and could also have been worn for a night out, but cute nonetheless. You can see the original post here.

Pull together an outfit

Sweater, Tights, & Boots: Target // Skirt: Made by me // Shirt: Express

You might remember this skirt. I made it! I found the material in downtown LA. They have amazing options, I love it there! It’s got some funky colors in it so trying to tie them all together can be difficult. I also knew I wanted to wear it with boots, and thankfully the boots I had matched perfectly. With some mustard tights, it’s perfect!


Dress: Nordstrom Rack // Tights: Walmart // Shoes: Target

I love this dress. It seems very festive to me, perfect for the holidays. And what’s a better way to tie in some more holiday spirit? Red tights! Throw some red lipstick on and you’re ready to go to that holiday party. Gotta love festive!

Pop of color

Sometimes it’s fun to add a pop of bright color to an otherwise rather monochrome outfit. I bought this skirt when shopping with my girl Hillary and it really needs to be worn with tights. So why not add a fun color?

Coordinating but not matching

Another way to wear colored tights is with other colors that are coordinating, but not necessarily matching. Purple and mustard go great together. This pin here is one of my favorites. Here are some cool color combos that go well together without being too matchy-matchy:

  • purple & mustard
  • navy & mustard
  • cobalt blue & black
  • fuchsia & black
  • green & rust

But have fun with it! Different color combos just add character to your outfit and to your wardrobe.


shoes & shirt: Target // Skirt: Express // tights: Walmart // Chambray: Sweden

I don’t know about you, but it’s so easy as a mom to just wear sweats every day.  They’re comfortable. They’re practical. It’s not a big deal if they get boogers on them. But I still want to be cute, don’t you? I want to make runs to the grocery store or go through the carpool pick up line looking cute but also still being practical. Colored tights, a comfy skirt & casual shirt is a perfect way to do this!

Well, that’s what I have for you today! I hope you liked it! I am sure there are plenty more ways to wear them, but you don’t have to have some kind of spunky style to wear them. As you can see, there are many options. Just find one that suits you and your style and go for it!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

    I LOVE those mustard tights!!  It looks SOOO GOOD!  I want to do the copy cat closet this week but i only have brown and black tights…was thinking the brown with a teal…gonna have to figure it out soon though.  Hehe!

      Yes, make it work! That’s okay if they’re not colored, you can just work some regular tights. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    Love all those colors! This is very helpful; I didn’t realize how much I like my comfy tights either 😉

      perfect for fall, isn’t it? 🙂

    My favorites have to be #2 and #5.  In all honesty, I don’t go far beyond black, brown and grey.  I have purple tights, but always feel awkward wearing them.  You make it look so effortless!

      You’re too nice, I guarantee you could rock them! Just start with not such a bold color and go from there. It’s kinda fun!

    I love all of these looks!! Though my favorites are the yellow combos (love that yellow cardi with the purple tights!).

      Thank you, isn’t it fun!

    Thank you!  I’m seriously trying to break out of the mom uniform routine but 1. forgot how to put together outfits and 2. live where the winter is outrageously cold.  This is such a great reminder of how to add some style that’s easy and keeps you warm!

      You know what, I totally understand! Those babies can throw us off, huh? But it’s great you’re back at it again!
