or maroon/burgundy i should say.
well i just bought some, and i am the happiest munchkin in the world about it.

how do you feel about colored tights? i used to think they should only be in neutral colors like black and white and grey. but i've changed my mind!

I like colored tights, but not leggings for some reason. They just look different. But I think they can easily look stupid, so they have to be paired with the right colors :).

Love coloured tights, I have some in raspberry and cobalt blue. I wear them with black and white outfits mostly.

Gotta agree with Chelle S.
If they are used in the right combination, they can look pretty good.
I also like coloured leggings, but only as a substitute for tights.

I love colourful tights, especially red ones. (But then I love anything red, really.) I have red tights, robin-egg blue tights, black tights with brown and white pinstripes, even red plaid tights. I try and keep everything else fairly neutral when wearing them, although sometimes I do wear red tights with my high red docs, like here.

I like the idea of green tights, but I always worry I would feel like Robin Hood when wearing them.

I used to wear purple tights alot, but I prefer black/skin tone tights on myself.

But I think other people can really work deep green, purple, red etc tights :)

I wear my dark green tights loads, but I wear a lot of green anyway, it's a great colour :D

I looooove statement tights, I have way too many.
I bought some House of Holland blue tights with the alphabet on, and I have no idea what to wear them with :|

I really like coloured tights, I went a bit manic with them about two years ago, when I was in my 'scene kid gig stage'...*shudder*
I had quite a lot of colours, red, bright pink, bright blue, purple and maybe even some yellow?
I wouldn't dare touch the bright colours any more, I think they would look a bit cheesy and childish.

I haven't worn any of them in a while; but now you mention it, I might have to whack out the red and purple. They might go nice with something monochrome and a blazer!
:D

I love coloured tights, red are my favourites. I remember my first week in school last year...

monday - white
tuesday - red
wednesday - blue
thursday - black (with dots)
friday - purple

When you wear it, remember to listen to "She's Like A Rainbow" by The Rolling Stones. :D
