Are Wolford’s Baggy, Footless Tights In Your Fashion Future?

Note from Jenine: This is a guest post from Stylehive, we’ll be doing a weekly post exchange. See our post here.

I’m all for most hosiery trends, whether it be

two-toned, crazy-patterned, or studded leg wear. And I’ve never been an opponent of “tights as pants,” as long as it’s done tastefully. But I have to admit that I don’t know what to make of Wolford’s Voile leggings/footless tights. Isn’t hosiery supposed to be fitted, not baggy? I have to say that these look like the cheap stockings sold at drugstores and bodegas, which are barely adequate when you’re in a bind and create a very unsexy-looking leg. These leggings, however, aren’t inexpensive, and retail for about $62. They not only look weird (and not in a good eccentric way) and cost too much, but are also impractical. I can’t think of any way to rock these that wouldn’t make the wearer look short and malnourished. Well, I guess if you’re trying to look thinner, these might do the trick, but would you really want to risk having your style license revoked? I didn’t think so.

    I think these tights are more to be worn as pants. either way. I don’t know what to think about them. I would have to see them worn with something else.

    Since my immediate reaction isn’t one of dismay or disgust, but simply a cocked head and a, “huh,” I feel like this is a style that might grow on me. The bagginess looks intentional enough, and if it’s Wolford it’s bound to be quality. How to wear them? No idea …

    ❤erin… oh i don’t know? maybe under a tunic and some other layers?
    ❤poochie… so true, i also saw that, and that’s why i think it’s do able.. but these aren’t really pants, they’re kind of like hose…
    ❤stella…great point, it’s hard to imagine clothes out of context half the time…
    ❤sal.. yeah me too! i kind of like them, but am so not sure how to apply these to real life… yikes!

    The first thing I thought when I saw the picture was oh my gosh those are adorable! I’m going to get some grocery store tights that are 10 sizes too big to see if I can pull it off. Short dress and heels!

    I get kind of a Princess Jazmine vibe from them… not for me, but it could work. I agree with Andrea, though: just buy the Queen-size tights for $5 and cut the feet off.

    Yikes, to me these look like saggy hosiery – I’m sorry Wolford made them! The Wolford Flash Leggings I saw that were ruched at the ankels looked good tho (about the same price.

    I think they could work and be amazing with the right dress and shoes.. I’m thinking some kind of flowy, sheer layered watercolor dress, maybe knee length.. Not sure what shoes would work but not those.
