I am actually a fan of tights with sandals, especially as we head into spring. There’s no snow on the ground and hey, if you have a cute pair just waiting to be worn… They can’t just be any sandals, as on Arizona Muse above, they need to be somewhat substantial and I wouldn’t wear beige (shoes or hose).
Cece sent this pic of Carine Roitfeld below to help my cause (thank you Cece!).
An aside, all hosiery is ‘tights’ to me…
Metallic loafer pumps
Tan-go patent pumps
