My great fear when it comes to wearing open-toed shoes with tights is seeing that seam across my toes, old lady styles. Abstract artist Tauba Auerbach (pictured above) pulls it off with aplomb. I have a similar pair of shoes in pink… do I dare wear them with tights?

Do you wear tights & open-toed shoes?

  1. I love the look and the concept of the tights/open-toed shoes! Though, I’ve only tried it with black on black…but I’m game to try colored tights against a contrasting pair of open-toed shoes.


  2. I would like to try this, as most of my shoes are open toe. I think it can look edgy and fun depending on the outfit … it certainly works in the example pictured. 🙂

  3. I think part of the reason the look works here is because she’s working with neutral colours. I wonder if it get’s a bit weird when you bring in the more fun colours?

  4. I do this look sometimes….but i have the same concern as you with the whole seam across the toes, it is hideous in an old lady style for sure! lol

    I’ve tried black tights with my gold with green suede heels, i know it sounds funny but it looks great in person:)


  5. Ferren – I hope it works in other colors, because mine are pink!

    P&P – I totally agree, it’s gotta be chunky heels

    jas – Me too, these comments have me motivated to try it!

    Cinz – Green gold and black sounds killer!
