Lately I have seen so many people wearing patterned tights and looking fabulous. I have never worn any tights so funky, to be honest, but I thought it would be fun to step out of my comfort zone and give it a try. Lucky me, I found these tights in the clearance section of Marshall's for just $2!!

And I thought: ¿Two dollars?! That's just a little more than the price of a soda! jajaja... So today I gave them a try and I actually like what I came up with. I kept it "me" by wearing bright colors like I always do :) Have you ever worn patterned tights? How did you wear them?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this blue skirt:

  1. I love those tights sooo much. I always find that it's easier to start wearing funky tights by keeping your outfit simple with solid colors and textures...then when you feel a bit braver add different textures, and then eventually prints.

  2. Wow. I'm impressed with the steal you got those tights for. I wear tights like that every once in a while. I like to wear a colored tight underneath them both to tone down bright tights and to keep my legs a little warmer. I just wore similar tights the other day.

  5. Marshall's and TJ Maxx are 2 great places to buy tights for cheap. Patterned tights are fantastic and I love the color combo of your outfit!

  7. Now those are really "interesting" tights. LOL I actually think that they are very funky and cool looking and I like how you paired them with the blue and yellow. Great color combo. The black and white accents pull everything together. I would agree with Kathryn you could pair them with other colored tights underneath or just flesh colored ones to keep your legs warmer. I would be chilled to the bone if the cold air hit my legs through those tights!!!

  10. I love those tights and that bag! I remember seeing it at Forever 21 and thinking it was adorable, but I know I'd probably never use it. :\

    I love patterned tights!

  12. I really love this outfit - the bright colors contrasting with black and white, but also the details like the patterned tights, belt, scarf, etc.!
