I was pinning some cute stockings/heels combinations onto the Offbeat Bride Pinterest account the other day when at the same time reader Karina was writing us asking to see more tights. It was serendipitous. Ariel started pinning more, I started pinning more… and the tights round-up was born!

We're no strangers to tights and socks as wedding fashion, but not all in one place!


Emily and her lady crew owned the outfits, including their animal print and neon-colored tights.

Mandatory close-up of Emily's gams! Even Kyle rocked the socks with his kilt.


Slightly more demure, but no less fancy, was this purple paisley pair at Erin and Heidi's wedding.


Another EXTREME CLOSE-UP! Whoa!


This was where I was originally drawn into this theme. Socks + vintage heels = so right. Not only that, but you're saving your tootsies some pain too.


I am kind of in love with this innocent white with the tongue-in-cheek image. It's totally hidden with a long dress if you're not ready for wild and woolly leg fashion.

A lot of Offbeat Brides already sport some ink, but if you're looking to fake it out, these tat sleeve-style tights would be perfect.

TattooSocks on Etsy has a shit-load of amazing printed tights. Like these forest symphony tights, peacock feather tights, and octopus tights.


Bridesmaids in mixed-patterned tights rocks. The jackets are no chopped liver either.


This pair kind of blew up on Pinterest. I mean, what's more appropriate than "love," right? I'd love to see these in a sexy thigh-high version.


Between Lisa's hair and dress, it's hard to even notice the striped tights, but they are most definitely there, and the outfit wouldn't be the same without them.


Jamie and Mengmeng rocked custom Rocket Dogs, but the red and white-striped tights made the outfit. Plus, red was huge in their theme. Win.

But the best tights of all were found on none other than a dude in this superhero wedding surprise. You know you love it.
