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 just bought purple ones, haven't had them on yet but am definitely looking forward to it. Although I'd probably agree with Sonia A. that coloured leggings are a bit weird.

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 love colourful and bright trousers! I have red, blue, purple, green, floral and aztec tights. i find that if i have no inspiration for my outfit and i've just gone for something dowdy and black, they just lift the outfit. then of course, if you put them with something that really doesn't go with it, then they can be a disaster. but i'm sure you'll work them perfectly!

I love coloured tights, but I don't own very many. I just think you have to pair them right, I've seen some atrocious combinations. Blair Waldorf rocks them though..

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
