What Color Tights Do You Wear With a Brown Dress and Brown Boots?


When your favorite dress and sexy boots match your mocha latte, choose colorful tights to coordinate for a classic outfit. Warm, neutral shades of brown -- from light milk chocolate to the rich color of a gooey brownie -- play perfectly with vibrant spring colors or blend with deep tones for fall. Don't let your jewelry and handbag have all the fun, all the time. Your legs can show off your creativity and personal style, too.

Bright and Bold

If you want to get noticed, use your tights to add a splash of color to your look. Whether you opt for bold Tiffany blue or peony pink, you'll look ultra feminine. For a softer, flirty look, slip into a pair of pastel yellow or lavender tights. They'll make a bold, colorful statement when paired with brown. Just steer clear of green tights, unless you're headed to a Peter Pan audition.

Choosing Prints

Break in a pair of patterned tights if your brown dress and boots have a solid texture and classic style. Animal prints with brown or tan undertones look best. Think cheetah or leopard for a wild bachelorette party. If you're headed to a business luncheon, opt for a traditional plaid design or a subtle pinstripe.

Night Out

When you're ready to take your little brown dress and boots from day to night, simply update your tights and accessories. In just five minutes, you can create a glam look by slipping into glittery silver tights, donning silvery jewelry and carrying a matching clutch. For a more elegant look, pair a light brown outfit with rich, cocoa-colored tights. Toss on a matching cocoa wrap, and you're ready to hit the town.

Going Neutral

Keep your look simple and sweet. If your brown dress and boots like to make an appearance at work, stick to dark, neutral leggings. Navy, dark plum or even black look sophisticated and stylish with brown. Avoid white, eggshell and other very light neutrals. You're not a 6-year-old dressing for a school picture.
