Whoever said you should always wear black tights was obviously not thinking straight. Just look at two-time America's Next Top Model runner-up Allison Harvard who shows us a way to make red tights WERQ. I'd actually go as far as to give the red tights the credit for elevating her outfit to the level of interesting and unexpected. Also, yes, I did just reference ANTM. Although most of the people I know in real life have given up on the show by now, I have to admit that it's still one of my most favorite guilty TV pleasures. I have in no way grown tired of Tyra Banks' articulate self-absorbedness and have come to terms with the fact that I probably never will. (What can I say? I'm an amoeba.) Although few and far between, inspiring contestants do also come along on the show, such as Harvard, whose style and general aesthetic are just phenomenal.
Obviously, I didn't exactly translate above inspiration literally when I finally got around to testing out my red tights. However, I did manage to incorporate a colourful cotton blouse, which has been begging me to wear it ever since I thrifted it a couple of months ago. Now it's on the blog - can you believe its luck? The skirt is Acne and the ankle boots Billi Bi. It's pretty obvious which part of the world I'm in.
