Miu Miu.
What do you guys think of these various embellished tights? I saw the pictures on Refinery29, in an article about what they consider the latest and greatest accessory trends. I am in love! I feel inspired to glue bits of anything I can find onto my tights! But what about you guys? Do you hope this trend will catch on, or is it too much?

I love the last pic… they’re like PARTY LEGS!

I think these are very very pretty, but the total look could be overkill depending what they are worn with.
I’m ready to buy a pair though!

I love it!
I wonder if it would be possible to embroider on tights without tearing up the fabric? I like the look of the delicate, tiny sequins that look like dewdrops.

they look really neat, but they also look like they might be itchy. i agree with ashley…they could look all wrong if you dont pair them right with your outfit. embroidery on thick tights would look really cute :)

LOVE them! I will totally try to DIY a pair for myself. Thanks for the link, hannahmichelle!
