Picture of the Day

I have to admit that when it comes to tights, one of my favorite colors is red.  Paired with a black dress and black heels, I think it can be a very flattering look for a woman.  Now, red tights with a red dress is a bit tricky to pull off.  Perhaps if there’s a belt matching the shoes in a contrasting color, it can work.  But… red shoes?  Parker Posey decided to give it a try.  Full mono color red, from neck to toe.  And speaking of toes, she’s donning a peculiar style shoe by Viviene Westwood.  I’d never heard of these before, but there’s so much chatter on the Internet about it, it’s hard to miss!

Those shoes… shaped for the toes.  What the… ?  It’s almost like trying to make your feet look like the paws of an animal.

Red is indisputably a sexy color.  You see some of the hottest sports cars produced in several variations of the color.  The “woman in the red dress” is an icon of sex appeal.  And so when it comes to the legs, red does a wonderful job there too.  I think there’s something so eye catching and attentive about a woman with red legs, especially if contrasted with a neutral outfit.  The legs make it all come together.  Although red tinted sheer pantyhose can look sexy, I somehow find a true solid opaque red to be more commanding.

If you look across the blogosphere of fashion, you’ll find red tights frequently making an appearance these days.  Many different shades, many different outfit combinations. One nice example I saw recently with a terrific shade of red is by Elsa, in her blog “Ca Surmoi”:  * Preppy Girl *.
