Striped Tights and Socks!
Horizontal stripes add a fairytale feel, vertical stripes create length and bring a lighter touch of quirkiness.

    I love most of the horizontal striped tights. I’m not sure they would be flattering on everyone, but they are fun and whimsical. The vertical stripes always remind me of cancan dancers. I guess that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. 🙂

    I love this for showing off inspiring stripe use! When I think of black and white striped stockings, I can’t help but feel like a 15 year old goth… but these showcase some flattering and unique means of wearing them…

    hey, thanks for the owls shout-out! i searched high and low for those vertically-striped tights.

    i really love the 1st pic in this series- the pale blue dress w/ the black and white tights.. it’s very alice-in-wonderland-esque.

    They make any normal outfit super whimsical! I like the selection of photos you used to illustrate this.

    Thank you for including me! I am super inspired by these other stripey stocking styles! Esp Pansy Lane’s pinky ones!

    Thanks for adding me here! Although I must admit, I wasn’t brave enough to wear them again since then 🙂
