What To Wear With Back Seam Tights

A while ago we reported on this rising hosiery trend, and now that the weather’s cooling down, we can’t wait to actually pull a pair of back seam tights out of the dresser.  And on that note, we thought we’d put together a handy primer on the proper way to sport this retro-chic look that’s sexy and old-fashioned simultaneously.

While first instinct may dictate wearing a super-slim pencil skirt, we’d actually beg to differ – we like keeping this look modern with a neatly draped dress.  High heels are a must, though, and a bag that’s neither highly structured or too floppy balances the outfit well.  Lastly, we think jewelry should be kept simple and limited to one piece, as the tights already lend the outfit an ornamental aspect.
