Who Got It Right? Red Tights Can Be Tricky

02/07/2007 at 02:00 PM ET

Colored tights can be a tricky trend for the savviest fashionista — what to pair them with? how not to make your legs look larger than necesary? — and it’s pretty bad when you get it wrong. Joss Stone is always out there with her clothing choices, and her appearance at the Monday night Marc Jacobs show was no different. A few tips for Joss: a) don’t wear textured tights with a textured dress, b) wearing mini dresses with colored tights is too much of a good thing and c) never match the color of your tights to your shoes — and hair! Rachel Bilson gets it right, keeping her red tights matte and everything else black so there is just a hit of bright color. Tell us: How do you wear colored tights?

I haven’t worn colored or textured tights since the last time they were in style…years ago.

I can’t see me wearing them now..but between these two, I like how Rachel’s look with the subtle hint of color, very pretty.

I like Joss too, for her style. She looks young and hippy like…nothing wrong with it at all.

EWWWWWW Joss looks gross. But hats off to Rachel she got it RIGHT!

Joss just looks stupid,but Rachel looks really nice I like how she pared it with the black

Josh’s hair makes me cry, and Rachel makes the tights look lovely. I’m sensing a major trend here with the red nails…?

Where can I find the dress that Rachel Bilson is wearing??? I simply love it!!! I would also like to know where she bought the shoes and where I could find the tights(??)

Joss’ look is fierce! I’m so glad to see a celebrity dressing in a unique way and really owning it. There’s far too much emphasis on the “sophisticated” (read: tame, boring, mediocre) look these days. It’s insane to me that Rachel’s red tights, with her *sophisticated* dress, could be perceived as a fashion risk. It looks pretty, I’ll give her that, but it’s far from a risk.

I think Rachel looks adorable but I’m not sure if I would love the tights if I saw her in person….

I don’t really like the red tights, but if I had to choose, Rachel Bilson looks much better. Both dresses are pretty, but Joss Stone looks like she has a very bad sunburn on her legs.

Definetly Rahcel. She pulls it off in a very classy way!
