An outfit that is sheer and spotty with suspenders... can it work?

From reading the title of this post, you may have thought that the contents were NSFW but I can assure you your boss should have no objections, unless they have a particular dislike of bloggers awkwardly posing on rocks. The lovely Emily at at MyTights.com sent me some rather delicious tights to try and I tried to incorporate them into both dressy and casual outfits. These tights were my favourite of the bunch, classic but with a twist and fantastically versatile. I loved the seam on these and thought that the length of the sheer skirt would help to tone down the more risqué element of these tights. 

Top: charity shop, skirt: Yayer, cycling shorts: H&M, tights: c/o Mytights.com , shoes: New Look
I saw this top whilst rummaging through the charity shops in Stow-on-the-Wold and I had to have it, I love the fact it is completely 80s in shape but I am still able to tie it up like any good 50s pin up would ;)


I am slowly being converted to sleeves too, perfect for covering up my pasty arms protecting my delicate porcelain skin (!) from sunburn. Fortunately the loose fit meant that I didn't overheat in the glimpse of sunshine. Win-win in my book!



You can just see the love seam poking out of the skirt here but when I walked you caught glimpses of it too which I also really liked, the swooshiness of the skirt definitely came into play here! 


This outfit was a bit of a spontaneous decision as I wasn't sure about pairing up two sheer items in one outfit but I figured that sometimes you just have to go with comfort. The tights definitely gave me a wiggle in my walk and made the outfit more playful (no mean feat when working in monochrome!) and sometimes that's just what you need... 


Would you wear suspender tights? How would you style these? 

P.S. I am on holiday at the moment with no internet so I won't be able to comment on posts until I am home!

I love quirky tights like these so of course they get the thumbs up from me, and I'm not much of a style guru, but I think you styled this perfectly. I probably would have worn them the same way. xxx
