A few years back my friend Julia sent me a package from Ukraine. It contained many cool souvenirs and of course, knowing how much I’m into it, she sent 2 pairs of tights.
In my opinion, both styles are quite rare. I’ve seen beige back seam tights before with a black seam and with a beige seam, but never a darker shade like this, especially with a reinforced toe.
Polka dots are common, but to find them in grey is not. To my surprise both styles turned out to be quite durable.
If you are wondering when these photos were taken, I will surprise you – just about 2 days ago! Yes, Calgary still has snow falling from time to time. It is almost March and I still didn’t pack away my winter jackets.
Here are photos of the packages. Giulia brand and Duve brand.
I was reading a little bit of psychology articles on what your possessions say about you. Here are some fun stuff about patterns. Which one would you pick?
Tights with Bold Stripes
Big, bold stripes could mean you’re confident and not afraid of what people think. Could that be you?
Tights with Polka Dots
Polka dots communicate your fun side. This is perfect to show off your playfulness!
Animal Print Tights
Animal prints say you’re creative. I wonder if the reverse of this works, if wearing animal print would actually spur your creativity. Do you want to find out?
Geometric Print Tights
Geometric prints usually mean you have a need for order and might be type A. I can probably relate to this personality type the most myself.
In general, I think that depending on your mood, any one of these styles could work, more or less. Every day has its new flavour and energy.
Here are some more photos of my teen cousin wearing Vaila tights, 20 den, by Fiore. She is visiting me for the summer and I am trying my best to entertain her. Of course, she got her hands on my make up, clothes, and shoes.
Tights look so good on her legs! She kept on asking me for some polka dot tights and right away she grabbed these when she saw the picture. We were taking these photos in front of our neighbour’s garage. A few of my other neighbours got to see the photoshoot and even gave some suggestions.
I love these grey Lolita tights with a pink band around the thighs. I wore it at some point to my dentist office and while nobody was looking took this shot of me waiting while wearing it. If you like it, it’s available at the shop section – Lolita tights.
This blogger is looking quite trendy. She is wearing Dezire tights by Fiore – a lovely polka dot style! Somehow this style never seems to go out of fashion.
If you like it, Dezire is available for sale in the shop section of this blog.
I saw another blog featuring this outfit and I really liked the pantyhose. No matter how bad the photos are, pantyhose always catches my eye.
I would like to open a discussion to whether even the cutest pattern can really be a fashion crime. In my opinion this is one of those cases.
Maybe she is just starting to model, but I’d seriously think about the theme of the shoot. This girl was competing with other models for some giveaway, but she didn’t win. Could it be for the lack of styling?
However, I’ll tell you the truth, I was confused about the rest! Summer sandals combined with a sweater? Matrix-style stern sun glasses and vixen leather totally clashes with the innocent playful polka dot, and that garbage bin in the background ruins the composition.
I applaud her for trying though and for wearing pantyhose, even with those summer shoes that I think would look much better with tan 8 den rather than black and patterned hosiery.
What kind of hosiery would you choose for this outfit in order to make it a winner?
Julia tried on Janessa pantyhose and took some photos of what it looked like. She helps out a lot with this blog and naturally, like any Eastern European woman, she likes nice clothing and tights.
