How to pick the perfect stockings to match your outfit?
When buying the perfect stockings there are several things to keep in mind. Here are some tips!
As we mentioned before, tights with integrated Lycra are more comfortable and are nice and glossy. The same goes for elastane. Better quality often prevents tights from giving off fluff or becoming itchy. In addition, they often last longer and look better for a longer period of time, even after multiple washes.
Outfit as starting point: It’s very important that your tights match the colour of your outfit. This isn’t always easy. You can decide on a colour equal to your outfit, or go for a contrasting colour. Our recommendation? If you’re wearing a dark outfit, dark tights provide the best results. If your clothes are in light colours, light or nude tights are a good match.
Shoes as starting point: When looking for the right colour stockings, you can also use your shoes as basis. For dark shoes you get dark tights and for light shoes, light tights. If your shoes are in a particularly expressive colour, you can match it to your tights. Please note, though: the ‘fashion rule’ is that your shoes can never be lighter than your tights! So if you’re wearing red shoes, you can go for red or nude tights. If you’re wearing dark tights with red shoes, you’re completely off the mark!
Which type of tights you’ll be wearing depends on the occasion you’ll wear it to. If it’s work, you generally go for standard tights, but if you’re going to a fun party or have an exciting date, you can go all out and wear hold-ups or suspender stockings. It’s best to consider beforehand for which outfit you’re looking for complementing stockings. The lighter your outfit, the thinner the material of your stockings. You want to combine tights with a strapless dress? Go for less DEN. You want to combine tights with an outfit for colder days? Go for a few DEN more.
