A question about tights

Photo from

I've got them in black.

I've got them in brown.

Can I have them in colors? Is that allowed? If I promise my skirt will be much longer than this one? Is it business appropriate?

And, of course... the most dreaded questions. Am I too old? Am I too, gulp, fat?

What do you think? Do you wear them? Are they gross and I'm just too charmed by the bright, cheery colors to notice? Maybe it's because I am a child of the 80's and they bring back good memories.

So, bring it on. I can handle it. Love 'em or hate 'em?

I wouldn't wear them, but I am mostly a black & brown gal from October to March.

My neice told me that I am to old (30) to wear the capri-type tights. A little piece of me died that day.

I personally would avoid colored tights....but I wouldn't be opposed to patterned black tights, with perhaps an argyle knit to them.

what color were you thinking? A muted color would be ok, but it could also look like crazy cat lady who doesn't know navy blue from just depends on the outfit, length of skirt, and shoes.

I always thought you looked great in them! I don't like the colors, though. You're definitely not too fat! But I think you should go for it-be comfortable.
I absolutely wouldn't wear them, but that's because I absolutey wouldn't wear a skirt! Ha!

I'm all for tights, and all for color! But I too am a child of the '80's. Personally, I think it's depressing to go downtown and see women all in black, white, brown and navy.

I have some hot pink ones. I've only had the guts to wear them once. I think they're cute, but you have to be extremely confident and have the right outfit and occasion to pull it off beyond a certain age.

For the most part, I stick with black, brown, and gray. They just feel much safer.
