ModEmployees Mandy, Danielle, and Marne
Spring is in the air, and that means a gamut of formal events are soon to follow! Whether you’re headed to a graduation ceremony, a wedding, a prom, when it comes time to get dressed, think beyond all black. Our secret? Using fun tights to brighten up our favorite formal dresses!
Mandy‘s teal tights complement the waistband on her dress, creating a bold but visually balanced look. Get your gams a similar look with the Indigo Peacock Feather Tights! In Mandy’s outfit: the It Girl Dress, Princess of Persia Necklace, and Go-See Platform.
Danielle’s bright tights add interest to a classic, black-and-white, strapless dress. If you like Danielle’s daring pop of purple, try the Ultraviolet Tights! In Danielle’s outfit: the Stroke of Midnight Dress, Cutenkhamun Necklace, and She Makes Me Heel.
Marne’s shimmering tights highlight and visually elongate her legs, while her dress’ bodice accent balances the splash of color on her wedges. In this outfit: the Grand Birthday Dress and the Glam Gam Tights in Pewter.
Maggie, Jess, and Bobbi
Maggie‘s fishnet tights mimic the cutouts on her dress, serve as a transition to her dark purple heels, and add to the outfit’s overall fun look! Like Maggie’s classy take on fishnets? Try the Extrovert Tights. In Maggie’s outfit: the Marzipan Marvel Dress, Don’t Step on My Heart Heel, and All Heart Necklace.
A statement flower necklace and floral print tights tie Jess‘ playful ensemble together. Jess’ outfit is a perfect example of how solid, minimal dresses can be spiced up with bold splashes of color and/or patterns. In Jess’ outfit: the Nursery Rhyme Dress, Staffordshire Tights, Antique Mall Necklace, and Easy Being Green Sandal.
Who says that fair-skinned ladies can’t pull off lighter dresses? The awesome fringe and the feather accents on Bobbi‘s dress draw attention to her face, and her outfit’s simple palette is complemented with darker, patterned tights. For patterned tights like Bobbi’s, try the Rose Hips Don’t Lie Tights! In Bobbi’s outfit: the New Vaudevillian Dress, Stable Style Belt, and Wedge Your Bets.

All you girls look fabulous!
Love those floral tights – perfectly paired with the blue dress. xo.
so great to see pretty, normal-sized women in your dresses!
I really wish this sort of style had been possible for me back when I went to prom!
I just want to second what jill said! I’m a curvier girl, and so many style websites use models who can’t give me an idea of what the clothes will look like for my body type.
I really appreciate the diversity of looks on Modcloth!
All the girls look fabulous!! Now comes the hard part for me, which outfit am I going to wear?!
Awesome! I especially love Jess’s look. It really caught my eye with the awesome tights! (& I totally agree, Jill!)
I agree with Jill, is great to see normal girls of different sizes wearing your clothes, it gives me an idea of how this looks could work for me or for somebody else. Thanks!
You have inspired me. I’m off to find some lovely tights to were out this weekend. I agree with A.D and love Jess’ look.
Had no idea that the people I met at AWP were the same people whose ads popped up on my Facebook! Great article! I love wearing funky tights.
