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…
