Printed Flowery Tights Inspiration

“The worst was when my skirt fell down to my ankles, but I had on thick tights underneath.”
on tragedy ~ Naomi Campbell

That was lucky Naomi. To have your skirt fell down to your ankles without notice is embarrassing; however, having only beautiful tights between you and the world is a lot better than having only underwear, much more nothing. Therefore tights aren't only for fashion, but also for protection.

Did you know that Lillian Russell, a famous American actress and singer from the late 19th and early 20th century, refused to wear tights? During the time, when the garment was gaining popularity, public attention was diverted to Miss Russell because of her aversion towards it. It was assumed that nature did not bless her with a pair of great legs. Supporters of her however claimed that it was modesty and not legs issues that caused her refusal to wear the garment. [source: Ambrose Bierce quotes (American Writer, Journalist and Editor, 1842-1914]

But for my opinion, if Miss Russell just had the chance to see these beautiful printed flowery tights that I found, she would have had changed her mind. They are so inspiring that they make you forget winter and just dream of summer.

These tights are finds of The Kingdom of Style.


I am loving these tights so much, especially the first two. From the left: Multicolored Vintage Flower Print tights, available for $10.00 here, Flower Hippy Tights - pink $5.95 here and Foral tights for £3.00 from New Look.

Obviously, tights are back and these flowery beauties are a new black.

“I wasn't sure at first-I didn't want to run around in tights, swinging a sword.”
~ Leonardo di Caprio
