Fashion Blogger Rebecca, creator of The Clothes Horse, has chosen a neutral color palette, allowing her yellow tights to take the spotlight. Paired with a cream/beige dress and shoes, with a denim jacket (denim is basically a neutral in this day and age), the tights uplift her outfit and add a touch of playfulness.
Note: there are no clashing colors, no competing accessories and no over-complication.

Our Challenge

Try our theory out at home with burgundy tights. Find a patterned dress featuring the same shade of burgundy as your colored tights, then ensure that any shoes and accessories are either neutral colors, or colors found in the dress. We would go for a tartan dress and tortoise shell classes for a nerd-chic look.
