Love or Loathe: White Tights
White tights have always been the territory of old school nurses and ruffle-butted children, neither of which I care to emulate. But maybe I pushed them aside too easily. I was recently reviewing Alexander McQueen's Fall/Winter 2008 show, and he used opaque white tights to marvelous effect. While I still wouldn't wear them come spring, I'm starting to warm to the idea of white tights for a winter wonderland look. Ice blue dress, fuzzy white coat, white knit hat and scarf, and if you're really queen of the snow fort -- a muff. (I always wanted a muff when I was a kid.) Would you consider wearing white tights or are they still too health professional?
