Zooey Deschanel has knees. No more black tights
Zooey Deschanel has always ranked high in my opinion for her style. She favors vintage frocks, makes silly faces, and sings in a band that covers old Andrew Sisters hits. She's got all the makings of a style icon. And up until a few nights ago, the starlet was never spotted on the red carpet without her trusty black tights. Sometimes, they were as opaque as opera curtains; other pairs were sheer and offered a glimpse of a dimpled knee.
Her reticence to go bare and show off those gams made people suspicious. The Fug Girls relentlessly called her out for her reliance on hosiery. Other merciless fashion lieutenants wondered if her legs were scarred from a fire (in her lap?) or mottled with varicose veins.
Apparently not, folks. Turns out Deschanel was just self-conscious about her legs. Is that such a crime? And apparently, she has overcome her anatomical anxiety because she was spotted just a few nights ago wearing nude hose. She may have just barely pulled off the black tights with this red dress, but it looks so much better with a bottom half that matches the top.
The key to wearing black tights with a dress is to be sure that you're similarly shrouded from the midriff up. Meaning, a plunging neckline that points to a pair of black tights is like a river that bottoms out in a ditch. A jumper with a black turtleneck works perfectly with tights. It's all about the silhouette.
