Demi Lovato worked a trendy Topshop ensemble while showing her support for The X Factor's remaining contestants at a press conference in LA. The singer styled an all-black ensemble — silky box top ($90), platform YSL pumps ($795), and opaque tights — with this aztec-print miniskirt ($68) and a few sparkling accessories. Score Demi's exact top and skirt to work with tights and pumps for date night or swap them for a chunky black sweater and boots for a cozy-chic take on her evening look.
I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but it still confuses me when people wear tights in hot weather. Exhibit A: Kate Beckinsale while Halloween shopping. This all-black look may have worked in the evening but it certainly doesn't fly on a sunny day in LA.
If I was Kate, I would have firstly ditched the knit beanie. Unless you're in snow, rain, or San Francisco, you don't need it. Next, I would have left behind the black tights. She has nice gams and should show them off. I would have also switched the suede boots for a pair of colored flats.
How would YOU wear it?
Quick: what's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of black tights? Cold weather, Fall or Winter, I bet. The last thing I would associate black tights with is sunny LA. So imagine my shock when I spotted so many girls at LA Fashion Week wearing black tights during the day. Mind you, the weather was about 75 degrees.
Don't get me wrong, I love a cool pair of tights when the weather calls for it but what do you think of black tights in warm weather? Is it fashionable or a fashion faux pas?
