My great fear when it comes to wearing open-toed shoes with tights is seeing that seam across my toes, old lady styles. Abstract artist Tauba Auerbach (pictured above) pulls it off with aplomb. I have a similar pair of shoes in pink… do I dare wear them with tights?

Do you wear tights & open-toed shoes?

    I love the look and the concept of the tights/open-toed shoes! Though, I've only tried it with black on black…but I'm game to try colored tights against a contrasting pair of open-toed shoes. =)xo,nancy

    Oh true I've tried black on black before, much less daunting! And colored tights are another fun option Nancy!xo Cristina

    I would like to try this, as most of my shoes are open toe. I think it can look edgy and fun depending on the outfit … it certainly works in the example pictured. 🙂

    Carrie – I'm gonna try it too! What color are your shoes?

    Love the look!*I don't personally do it but I admire everyone who makes a perfect outfit with it =)!*xXx

    I think part of the reason the look works here is because she's working with neutral colours. I wonder if it get's a bit weird when you bring in the more fun colours?

    i do it all the time! but it has to be with a pair of chunky heeled sandals…if the heel is too thin it doesn't look right (unless the shoes are close backs)xoxoP&P

    I do this look sometimes….but i have the same concern as you with the whole seam across the toes, it is hideous in an old lady style for sure! lolI've tried black tights with my gold with green suede heels, i know it sounds funny but it looks great in person:)Cinz

    Ferren – I hope it works in other colors, because mine are pink!P&P – I totally agree, it's gotta be chunky heelsjas – Me too, these comments have me motivated to try it!Cinz – Green gold and black sounds killer!

    Yes. I did it once with open-toed booties. But it was black on black.Rockin necklace on Miss Auerbach
