A pair of tights can really help your overall look when wearing a skirt. Whether you're trying to distract some of the attention away from a short skirt, accessorize your style by adding another layer, or just adding warmth, a pair of tights underneath can really help your outfit. Play around with a variety of color -- even textures -- for a fashionable look that works.
Extend the vibrancy of your bright red skirt by adding a pair of matching red tights underneath. Especially if your skirt is either short with ruffle layers or skintight and knee length, the tights will act as an extension of the skirt giving your look a monochrome style. Choose thicker fabric tights for your short ruffles and a lighter slightly sheer pair with your longer skirt. Finish this look with an oversized black clutch handbag.
Add black tights underneath your skirt for a contrasting color. Try a pair of textured tights in a thicker cotton fabric for sweaters and heavier fabrics. If your tan top is sheer and blousy, add a sheer pair of black tights so an opaque pair isn't so distracting where it takes away from your overall look. Pair a red suede fitted skirt and closed-toe black pumps. Add a black leather hobo bag to complete this look.
Push your red and black outfit into the wild by adding a tan and black cheetah or leopard print pair of tights. This style works well against the colorful red skirt. Here's a way to add color and a pattern within an outfit that is still suitable for a professional setting where your dress code allows you to express your creativity in your dress style. Although the tights are colorful and busy, with the solid colors throughout the outfit, you won't be dressed too wildly. Add a pair of black ankle boots and a black scarf to your look.
Electrify your outfit by pairing a tan v-neck fitted cotton top with a flowing red skirt and electric blue tights. You don't have to be an imaginative artist to make this style work for you. Wrap a wide elastic black belt around your waist and add a matching black clutch. Add a pair of black thigh high boots to tie it all together and head off to enjoy coffee while surfing online or reading a magazine. Finish this look with black studded earrings and matching a rhinestone ring.
