Trend Spotting: Bright Tights -- Would You Wear Them?

What: Bright, candy-colored tights for fall that lined the runways at Balenciaga, Pucci and Moschino, and that have already been spotted on celebreties wandering the streets.

Left Brain Says: They're definitely one way to make a statement when worn against an all-black ensemble and they'll add some zip to a rainy day in seconds flat. Of course, like all tights, they add much-needed warmth and a touch of modesty for the girl afraid of baring her gams. They're also a cheap way to update your wardrobe.

Right Brain Says: They're glaring, over-the-top bold and almost infantile. Sure neon was hot in the '80s and all of fall fashion is screaming revival, but I can't quite get behind the trend…or can I? If I go monochromatic in all purple or turquoise will I look like a walking crayon? Or if I pair them up with some mod prints and eye-catching patterns will it be to glaring and busy?

What does your grey matter say? Yay or nay? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section.

Get Yours: Urban Outfitters — they have an incredible selection of footless, footed, patterned and shiny legging styles, and their Sparkle & Fade Opaque Tights are currently 2 for $20.
