Coolio... Anyone who wears that combo must have great taste!Yup, would be a boring world if we were all the same.

I'm often a bit different. The funny thing is that day my tights ended up coming off anyway, as I wanted to paddle my feet in the water!

I wear black tights with shorts, but only if it is cold. Otherwise, no tights when it is warm. I always have bruises and scrapes on my legs, but no one should give a **** about it.

Plus, you can wear ankle socks so it's not bare feet in the shoes.

Yeah that's true, but they won't cover up the blemishes on my legs. I know I shouldn't feel self-conscious about it. But I do and that's why I feel comfier in tights.

I suppose I should just give in and wear black tights instead! My friends would certainly approve, as we have the same discussions about underwear!!

Lolz, was obvious you were a guy! Thanx though as you're being nice about my legs. I just use tights as a foundation layer and feel comfier that way.

Since you're an expert lol, what about tights with strappy sandals? This was me when I came home last night after being out with some some friends...



Bet you'll say, bare feet would've been better!!
ima girl and this just looks fkn weird lol
ur not supposed to see the end of the tights like that?

also i dont see why you need to wear them your skin looks fine if theres some blemishes put concealer on?

Haha, yeah I know about the toes. Should've worn sandal-toed tights!! But I didn't have any

Yup, black tights is defo more common, I know! Funny how guys think it's a strange look, but girls think its ok, hmm... This is a pic a friend took of me when we were on holiday in the summer, to show other friends my strange fashion sense!!



Denim shorts, skin coloured tights and trainers, so weird LOLZ!

Or maybe you think it's ok?
Nice legs. :sexface:

I already said I should've put sandal-toed tights on, but I didn't have any. If I'd done that it'd have been fine. Yeah I use concealer sometimes, but when I'm wearing skirts, tights or shorts I feel comfier in tights.

Ok, so some folks didn't like the look with skin-coloured tights and shorts, so what do you think of them with this outfit and my new pink dyed hair!!



My new shoes were killing me, so I couldn't wait to get outside onto the campus and kick them off, lol!

I think you are a little too obsessed with how apparently bad your legs look.

There is no such thing as a perfect body. We all have marks and blemishes and scars we would rather not have. It's a fact of life though.

Honestly, learn to live with how your legs look and perhaps invest in some black tights if desperate. Just don't wear open toe shoes with tights. And if you still want to wear nude tights...get a lighter shade. Those ones are just too dark and make me think your outfits would look better with black tights.

Hiya, you're probs right about being too worried about how my legs look. but I can't help it as my bf comments and so do some girls in college, so it makes me think about it all the time.

Do you think the nude tights I'm wearing in the pic are too dark? They're only 15 denier. I guess I could go for 10 and also try wearing some black tights, as peeps are always saying that. Should I go for opaques or what then? Thanx!

Btw, I had some blue ballerina pumps on, not open-toed shoes. Only got them the other day and they were killing my toes, lol!

If the tights are thick enough you can go without the shorts, apparently some females do dress like that

Hiya, thanks. I know they do.

I just forgot to buy some and I only discovered it when I was getting dressed to go out, and too late! I wanted to wear tights with my dress that night to give my legs some colour, so I just put those ones on with reinforced toes.

A few people did comment!! Yeah, I always try and keep my nails nice

I wouldn't normally but I think it looks fine OP, the only time I've ever done tights with shorts was with black tights though as it went with my maroon DMs. If you feel more confident in tights then go for it!
