Geri Halliwell Signs Her Book Eugenie Lavender in Purple Tights

Cheap & Chic: Color Your Legs

We've been seeing colored stems for a while now. But it's an opportune time for a refresher. Geri Halliwell, here at her book signing in the UK, shows us how to pull it off successfully. The key is to keep the rest of your outfit monochrome, preferably dark. That way your legs aren't upstaged — and you don't look like Punky Brewster.

It's an easy and inexpensive way to incorporate color into your Fall wardrobe. Take a cue from Geri — wear a short black skirt, a sleek coat, colored tights, and patent pumps. Beret and leather gloves optional, though encouraged!

I have a pair of pink/fuschia ones.. I haven't worn them yet. How (if possible) can I wear them during the day? I don't exactly walk around campus in black heels and mini skirts.

She is looks like she could be donning some vintage Mary Quant. I love tights but alas South Florida is not conducive to them.

I love this! Dark tights are a staple in my fall/winter work wardrobe (I am even wearing some today) :P but I love color ones too! esp. this purple shade!

I want light blue and maybe bright red one tights. Wearing neutral color ones all the time isn't any fun.

I like some colored tights...hers are cute. But I'm not interested in fuchsia or orange or anything too bright.

I love this look! It is so "fall"-it adds just enough warmth to your legs for this time of year.

I'm afraid of trying this; my legs are muscular and look awkward in anything other than sheer, black and gray. Maybe if I find a $4 dollar, I'd give it a shot. It looks really cute here!

au contraire, this is so CHIC! I love the way colored tights can bring unexpected oomph to an outfit. And Geri looks darling in her purple tights. I can't wait to bust out my blue tights now that the weather is cooler!
