How can I wear coloured tights and still look like an adult?

I have had many new people visiting the blog today because someone on Reddit (hello there!) was wondering how she could wear coloured tights and still look like an adult.

Even though my previous post on tights helps to figure it out, I decided to write a post dedicated to that specific question and to create three outfits.

So, to wear coloured tight and still look like an adult, here are my tricks:

1. Choose darker colors for the tights: burgundy, dark green, navy blue, eggplant, etc.

Then you can even add a second color and soften the look with neutrals such as this beige trench.

2. If you go for bold colors, wear a low profile outfit

– With lots of black items for instance

– With darker colors, neutrals and modest cuts

The colors that will make you look the most like a little girl are pastels and neon colors, therefore, I advise you to avoid them.


PS: yes my english is not perfect but I write everything by myself and cannot afford a translator (yet) ^^ Hope it is still nice reading me guys!

    I love your articles Aloïs!
    I have a navy dress and grey jacket like the third picture and never thought to wear red tights with it.. Éclaire de génie!
    I thought also yellow/ mustard tights but it reminds me of ‘That Yellow Bastard’ in Sin City.
    Your writing is lovely.. better English than a lot of my London-born friends!
    Thank you!

      Thanks 🙂
      You could do burgundy, olive green, mint green, flashy blue… grey and navy beeing rather neutral, they can be paired with so much!
      And mustard yellow (but with the Sin City risk ahah ^^)
