To wear or not to wear sandals with tights. That’s the question many of you may be asking yourself as you get ready for the arrival of Summer. On the one hand, we all want to feel comfy and cool when it’s warm, but going bare leg isn’t an option for many people. We know for a fact that many people out there wear hosiery all year round. This is what you have to take into account to wear sandals with tights (and, of course, sandals with socks) in style.
How to wear sandals with tights
When you have the right pair of tights, it doesn’t really matter if you wear them with flat shoes, trainers, high heels or stripped sandals. They will look as amazing no matter the heels or the style! Look at the Oroblu Daisy Tights above. Gorgeous style, right? Here you have a perfect example of how a great pair of tattoo-printed tights can look great with heeled sandals. Now imagine them with ankle boots. Wouldn’t they still look beautiful?
– Wear something you truly love!
The ultimate tip to wearing tights with sandals is looking natural. To do so, you should wear hosiery you feel comfortable wearing. When one feels comfortable, everyone around notices that self-confidence. If you are into fishnets, wear fishnets. If you prefer polka dot tights, just wear them with sandals! What about if you are a fan of lace tights? Go for it!
Look at these patterned tights above. Don’t they just look amazing with those sandals? These are the kind of tights you can wear day and night, too. From the office to the pub!
– Sheer better than opaque. Colourful better than simply black:
We know a good pair of black opaque tights can be life-saver, but you have many other chances to wear them around the year. Why not going for sheer styles, instead? After all, you don’t need to layer up in summer. This is the summer for coloured tights: red, yellow, Emerald green, pink… all bright colours! At the same time, though, pastel colours are also on trend: mint, peach, sky blue and pale pink are right on the spot! We, of course, have them all!
Is it better to wear sandals with toeless hosiery?
Not really. If you are looking for a natural look, sometimes sandal-toe hosiery can work better than toeless tights. It really depends on the sandals you’ll be wearing:
- Toeless Tights: Better with sandals with a thick strap over the toes, slides and other peep-toe styles:
- Sandal toe tights: Can you see the edges of your toeless tights? Then it’s better to choose sandal toe tights, this is, those tights without reinforced toes. If you go for ultra sheer tights, only those looking closely at your toes will notice the difference. We’d avoid wearing reinforced tights with sandals.
What about socks? Is it OK to wear socks with sandals?
Yes, it is totally acceptable to wear socks with sandals. Not only ankle highs but also thicker socks, such as the white sporty ones. Fishnet socks, patterned styles and see-through styles, with florals and other details, are on trend. Jazzy styles with funky prints or bright colours, too. We know this style isn’t for everyone, but, if you dare to wear them, you have plenty of cute ankle highs and socks to choose from at UK Tights!
