Women fear white tights. And by tights I mean stockings.
Pair a white tee with the busiest, kaleidoscope-of-colour clothing piece, and you’re home Scott-free. It works. A white tee is the easiest way to figure out a busy bottom.
It’s the same for black. A black tee or jean goes with every-bloody-thing. We know this and that’s why we so often wear black tights, with every-bloody-thing.
But, a light-coloured winter dress, maybe in blue, maybe with brown stitching, it begs to be mixed with a flattering white tight. Begs. A dress in lemon, pink, black, it doesn’t work – too heavy. The outfit is begging for white.
Do we do it? No, not often enough. I get the leg argument, but it isn’t warranted (get a ribbed tight, Witchery, currently on sale, circa $25) Solved.
There’s nothing to fear.
