This Polarising Styling Idea Is Causing a Right Ol' Debate in Our Office

Wearing tights in winter is hardly a groundbreaking styling move, until this winter when the Scandi Instagram set started experimenting with some slightly bizarre hosiery. We saw floral versions (a £7 pair from H&M has proved rather popular) and polka-dots at Stockholm and Copenhagen Fashion Weeks, but it's the use of colour that really has us divided. The likes of Emili Sindlev and Pernille Teisbaek have been wearing tights that match the colour of their shoes—it elongates the legs, yes, but also looks slightly cartoonish… some would argue. Keep scrolling to see the polarising styling idea that has come from nowhere.

Style Notes: Pernille Teisbaek loves tights even more than Blair Waldorf does, and she particularly loves this white-and-white pair-up.

Style Notes: Pernille shows this unusual styling trick works with plenty of colours, as she pairs her grey pumps with slate-coloured opaques.

Style Notes: Emili Sindlev shows that while the colours match, you can play with different textures.
