Whenever I’m in Tokyo, I always want to look my best. This is because of two reasons; One – it’s Tokyo and if there’s one place I can wear slightly mental things, it’s there. Two – It’s too beautiful to NOT dress well! But sine I was there in the winter, there’s a limit to my colour palette. That was until these We Love Colors plus size red tights came along!
Navy is actually one of my favourite colours. It looks good against my skin tone, and my hair just POPS unlike any other colour! Throughout the summer my go-to dress is this eShakti shirtdress I bought back in 2015. But in the winter? I just can’t. I spoke in my last WLC post about how I hated tights. They never fit, and they’re pretty much only in black, maybe the odd dark navy here and there. But nothing that works with a nice, bright navy such as this dress!
So back in the wardrobe it goes until the summer, usually. So you can imagine how excited I was to wear my favourite dress in the winter with these scarlet red tights!
Just like Spruce Green tights, I took the 4X in the Scarlet Red. To pre-warn you on two things; the red comes up larger than the green for me! Plus, they NEED to be washed before wear. Red dyes have problems with colour run, and these are no different. A soak in cold salt water should help you out, though. I didn’t do it, and the first time I wore them I ended up with red feet – eek!
When meeting my friend in Ueno she exclaimed “those are some tights” and rightly so! They’re such a bright, intense red that they make my hair look dull! Other than having to pull the tights up from the ankles a bit more than the green, these are still pretty amazing. They seem to come up longer than the green, at least. I mentioned the green where a good fit with possibility of going down a size, but the 3X would have been a better size for me in red.
But it’s not stopping me from wearing this colour combination often! I’d rather tights a touch too big than too small, after all.
You can tell I was excited by wearing blue for once, especially since I got to wear my ‘Bye’ beret from the tutorial I did a while back! Doesn’t quite go with the outfit theme-wise, but colour-wise isn’t it just perfect?
And since I wanted to add a little bit of ridiculousness to my outfit, I matched up my Vendula London Sushi bag with a SUSHI NECKLACE. Capitals needed, it’s both the best and worst thing I own. Pieced together from ¥100 sushi keyrings from Daiso in my hotel room, and old Japanese ladies found it hilarious.
So what colour tights will you be rocking in winter? Let me know in the comments!
