I Spy a New Trend...


Embellished tights are popping up everywhere these days - and not just on elementary school girls! What do you think? Do you heart them?

so cute - i like the barely there ones... and the ones up the back - like a little surprise! don't think i could pull off the big obvious hearts without feeling like a 5-year-old though!!

Lisa said...

I love the second ones...I pretty much adore everything heart-related! :)

In Honor Of Design said...

Definately would sport the tiny hearts. So CUTE! Need to find out were I can get some!

Leslie said...

I love this trend! I actually picked up a pair with tiny heart embellishments last weekend and they are so cute!

Super cute!

So sweet, so 80s, love!

adorable. wonder if i could do it myself? i just started embroidering last week and want to embellish everything!

Saltina said...

I vote for the barely there ones as well. Though I am still loving opaque black. There should be a heart burn out, so you would still get the opaque, and the little hearts would show a bit of skin. Little hearts.

I really like the look. Not just hearts but all the embellished tights. I have to wear all black at work and this is a way to add a little something. Don't you think?
Do you think it would be appropriate for an older but stylish lady to wear this look?

Nicole Leigh said...

Nimue said...

I love the tiny ones :) so small and cute, yet sexy!

mise said...

I love them, but, you know, I especially love the ones for elementary school girls, with their chalky pastel stripes and polka dots. I wish they came in my size. Sure, people would laugh, but I'd be as proud of myself as an elementary school girl and wouldn't care.

Style Odyssey said...

they're really pretty. don't know if i could do the larger hearts (i do like them, though), but definitely the small sheer ones. on that note, i've seen recently that sheer hosiery is baaaack....a trend i never thought i'd care for again. never say never, right? not when it comes to style!

great post!

Hi there, they are totally gorgeous Crystal!Drooling over large velvet hearts, almost velvet so tactile! purr purr.Sharon xxxx

Crystal @ Plush Palate said...

@Cass @Mise: I know, it'd be hard to pull it off and not feel like a 5th grader. But I could definitely try the barely there ones in the second image

@Janet: I say go for any trend at any age! But for this one, perhaps I'd leave it for the weekend and not work :)

i love them on other people, but am not sure i would wear them. i'm staunchly a black-tights kind of girl. i think it comes from being a teenager in the mid-90s. ;)

Jaime said...

It's definitely starting...love the last pair!!

A Perfect Peach said...

These are the cutest - and an awesome way to inject some fun into my corporate wardrobe. Thanks!

Sarah Klassen said...

BIG time!

About 2 years ago, my oh-so-fashionable friend told me they were about to make an appearance, but I didn't believe her/wasn't sure at the time. Now, I am seeing some lovely ones popping up, (love the first and third pair) and can't wait to get a pair myself :)

Ms. Bright said...

I want some of these in a tiny swiss dot, black preferably. So cute and chic!

Jessica said...

I like this trend in theory - and on little girls. Personally, I'd feel ridiculous wearing them.

Jonezy said...

I remember tights like these when I was in elementary. What's old becomes new again. Cute photos!

Iva said...

I love these MAJORLY ;)

Down and Out Chic said...

i do heart them, big time! my favorites are the smaller hearts that kind of look like polka dots. too cute.

{this is glamorous} said...

definitely! such a fun trend -- have the sheer with tiny polka dots, but have yet to find a pair with hearts . . .
