Matte white tights – a staple in my wardrobe

Matte white tights

I’ve got a thing with matte white tights – I think it’s side-effect of watching to much”Tri orísky pro Popelku”

Matte white tights are one of my go-to items when I don’t know what to wear. I guess my love affair with tights will never end, but some become more favoured than others. I’d been hunting for a white matte pair for a few years. Then I found these at Strømpesalongen in Bergen, the label is Vogue but I found a similar pair for you here:

What to wear with matte white tights?

I tried them on with typical 60’s outfits and moccasins – which I believed to be a very good look. Sometimes it’s astonishing what a pair of pantyhoses can do to transform your look! Some days I’m a bit fed up with color, and an all white look would be my version of black. I think I got inspired by a movie about a chinese emperor, and at his funeral I though it was the most beautiful thing that everyone wore white. Anyway, I like to wear white tights with strong colored shoes and a textured white skirt. Preferably a pastel or light pink sweater to go with so it picks up a bit of the pink and some of the white. Also, white tights are really cool with a bright dress and jacket. I don’t think you can go wrong with anything combined with white tights, but I do believe black and brown ankle shoes/boots are not suitable because they “cut” your feet. Your legs will seem longer if you wear more open shoes in lighter colors.

    I love white tights, too, and I fully agree with your assessment regarding pairing them (or any tights) with ankle boots: such a look really does eliminate the leg-lengthening enhancement that tights can achieve. Tights with heels look especially fetching, even “kitten heels”. I love white tights with coloured heels or the classic black Mary Jane – girly but classy!
