Unlike a solid dress, a print dress offers more than one color and a lot of visual interest. Top that off with a floral print and you're dealing with a very soft, feminine aesthetic. When it comes to choosing a pair of tights for your floral-print dress, you may feel overwhelmed with where to begin. Fortunately, you have a slew of exciting options from interesting colors to new textures. Unfurl your brow and enjoy the experience!
Gray Opaque Tights
While the term "floral dress" may immediately conjure up images of bright pinks and bold multicolored prints, floral dresses come in many shades. Say you've found yourself a long-sleeve mini-dress with a navy-and-creme tiny-floral print. This dress already boasts a soft, feminine look for cooler weather, so keep that romance going by adding a pair of gray opaque tights -- they're not as severe to the eye as black. Step into a pair of light gray suede oxford wedges and you're done.
Sheer Black Tights
Floral dresses often have a main solid background hue upon which a bouquet explosion sends multicolored petals scattering. When you're wearing a dress with a black foundation and pops of flowers -- think lavender and purple -- the last thing you want to do is add pieces that compete with the print. Maintain a sleek appearance with a pair of sheer black tights. Slide your feet into black pumps or a pair of booties and all eyes remain on your dress.
When you're a girl who is simply not satisfied with an outfit unless it is eye-catching and expressive of your personality, add some texture to your ensemble for added depth. Start with a watercolor floral print dress -- the type of print with soft-edged flowers and sheer layers of color. Envision a navy background with a mustard-and-red-hued floral print. Now pull on a pair of navy tights with an interesting texture -- whether they're Swiss dot, windowpane or ribbed, you'll look uber-fashion-forward.
Brightly Colored Tights
Just because you're wearing floral doesn't mean you can't bring extra color into your outfit. Opt for an on-trend look with a pair of bright tights instead of neutral. Make sure you pull from one of the shades in your dress and you're good to go. Envision a silk chiffon dress that falls to the knees with a mod-inspired dark pink, black and gray floral print. Wear a pair of dark pink tights and black platform pumps -- so cool.
