Sarah Jessica Parker stepped out last week for her shoe line launch with Nordstrom and picked an interesting pair of tights to bring some extra attention to her feet. SJP paired stirrup tights with her SJP shoes, and while the shoes cost a few hundred, stirrup tights can be snagged for a steal. But before we get to where to buy on a budget, let’s chat about who’s wearing them, why we’re loving them, and how to style ’em. Ready?
Who: This wasn’t the easiest to find, but lots of Google image searching proves that other celebrities have in fact worn this trend. Stirrups have been spotted on Taylor Swift, Gwen Stefani, and Katie Holmes.
How to style: Take a cue from SJP and don’t try to hide the stirrup. Embrace it and pair with a shoe that enables for a little peek of stirrup. Try a color with a neutral shoe or opt for a neutral tight and wear on the regular with various shoes – ankle straps, point-toe pumps, whatever you’re feeling.
Why you’ll love: Fashion forward, brings attention to your shoes, allows your feet from suffocating in tights, and they’re perfect for spring. The finicky temps call for tights that let you showoff your pedicure. Know what I mean?
Shop the style: American Apparel stirrup tights are $20 and comes in five colors.
