color scheme


As Couture Carrie already pointed out on her fabulous blog, there's definitely a matchy-matchy thing happening for Fall. While I'm not a fan of mirror-image patterns on shoes and pants (although I can see how it would make one's legs look a great deal longer) I am certainly a fan of the matching shoes/tights in Loeffler Randall's Fall lookbook (above). Feeling inspired, I set out to create as many matching sets with my own tights and shoes as I could.


And of course, not satisfied with what I've got, I made a Polyvore collage too:
Clockwise from top L: Office Late Nights Platform, Jonathan Aston grey socks; Court Shoes Robert Purple pumps, Falke Fifties purple tights; Jimmy Choo sandal, green tights from Costume Hub; Nicholas Kirkwood platform suede shoe, Topshop blue tights; Theory Sandals, Express nude tights; Sonia Rykiel Toscane Dancing shoe, Mary Quant terracotta tights.

I think my favorite way to rock this look is going to be with a pair of black thigh-high tights and black pumps. It'll stand in for the thigh-high boots seen all over the Fall runways for a fraction of the price.


  1. Ahh!
    I like that you blogged about this because I've been staring at my red tights and red flats for a while, mildly terrified of what their child would turn out like.

    I've been pondering how to style my thigh-highs for the upcoming fall as well, will you be pairing it with a garter belt + sheer skirt or wearing them sans garter with something else?

  2. I love colored tights. They are so hip and they really add to an outfit.

  3. interesting idea, the nude tights with the nude shoes would look really good
