Daring or Dreadful: Tights with Open-Toed Shoes

I was reading up on Lauren Conrad's blog the other day, and she recently did a post about wearing tights with open-toed shoes or heels (click here for the link). I've always be skeptical as to whether or not I should or should not wear tights with my heels (even though I barely wear tights since I'm in hot Florida). I'm still indecisive about whether or not I think it's appropriate.

Here is Lauren's response to my questioning:

"Personally, I love wearing tights with open toed heels. It’s a simple way to wear your favorite spring and summer pieces during colder seasons. How economical, right?
My favorite tight + toe-baring shoe combo is black tights with black heels. The black on black tricks the eye and makes your legs look a mile long."

I guess it might depend on the type of shoes and color of the tights, or maybe how much of the tights is showing? I would love to hear your feedback. Have you tried this look before? Did it work for you, or not so much?

        What do you think? Is wearing tights with open-toed shoes daring or dreadful?

  3. I've never tried it myself but I have seen it totally work on others so I'm not opposed to it.

  4. I have never actually tried it (I'm not very brave when it comes to cold weather, and barely ever leave my trusty pants :P) and I even remember my mom telling me when I was younger that these 2 things don't go together: tights are for cold weather and open-toed shoes for warm weather. But I have seen so many beautiful looks where they worked together incredibly well, that I'm very tempted to try it!
    Thank you for visiting my blog, and I'm sorry it took so long for me to stop by as well! Happy week-end!

  6. Gotta say, I love the look...at first it made me kinda wary...but it opens up your tights/shoes combo to so many more options and I kinda like the cute, quirky peek of colour at the end of my feet :)

  8. I like it, but you definitely have to be able to pull it off. If you look sloppy it won't look good. But if you look put together and confident you can definitely do it! I like it with colorful tights best, I think.

  12. I've never felt daring enough, though I think it looks great on others! Guess it would depend on the colors/shoes for me personally. Thank you for the sweet comment! xo

  20. I love colorful thighs so in my opinion there's nothing wrong in wearing them with open-toed shoes.It makes every look more joyful.

  21. I quite like doing it, I bought my swedish hasbeens in the end of summer sales last year and it's the only way I've been able to wear them so far. I definitely didn't like them at first though, but now I think 'why not?'

  25. I like it. Only trouble I've had is the tights are all slippery inside my shoes so I have to clamp my toes down then I walk. Not very comfortable!

  26. I know it's a trend right now, but I just can't get up the courage to do it. I don't like that you can see the seem of the tights when you wear open toed shoes. It just doesn't seem right to me. But, maybe I'll get adventurous one day and give it a try. :)
