We were surprised to see opaque white tights on the runway for Bruno Pieters' S/S '08 collection yesterday. After all, tights aren't very summery, and white ones make us think of the outfits we wore for Thanksgiving and Christmas when we were little (which usually involved some kind of velvet dress with a sash). But Bruno's tights didn't look girly in the slightest; they looked stark and modern against his parade of black dresses. This made us think that they'd be really great for fall, as a way to stay warm and keep our dark colored clothing from looking too drab. This might be a tricky look to work off the runway though; white tights wouldn't look very good splattered with sidewalk snow slush, and the black/white pairing makes for a pretty severe look. Still, we'll definitely be experimenting as soon as temperatures here in New York drop below 70 degrees. Will you? --ANNA FIELDING GRIGGS
