Online Finds: Two Toned Tights

Ok. Let's talk about this. Two-toned tights? Is the world really ready? I mean, I'm thrilled that leggings are on their way out. Don't get me wrong, I loved them as much as in the next girl... in 2006. And while Lindsay Lohan has done her absolute best to stretch this trend as long as possible, I think even LiLo knows when to admit defeat.

So, is this the next big thing? Karl Lagerfeld is certainly a trend setter if there ever was one, and he was the first to splash them across Chanel's fall runways this year. So they've got that going for them. And now, Urban Outfitters is selling them so pre-teen girls hip fashionistas everywhere will be donning them soon enough.

But really, do they work? I find them a little confusing to be honest. From the back you're casual and opaque and from the front you're sexy and sheer? That's... odd. And of course, from the side you look a little like you're in a rather strange racing costume. However, something in me still kind of wants a pair. (This could be the constant bargain hunter deep in my soul who thinks that if Chanel is selling them for $295 and Urban Outfitters sells them for $14, it's too good of a deal to pass up.)

I guess when it comes to these tights, I can't make up my mind. Ironic, because it seems they have the same problem.
