I'm getting AP's Candy Fun Fair OP in ivory and pairing it with a red hat beret, but I'm unsure what color stockings I should wear. I own red tea parties, so I wasn't sure if wearing navy tights would clash too much despite navy occurring in the OP itself. Would ivory stockings be too plain? (I usually wear stockings due to getting a lot of scratches and bruises on my legs from running around school, otherwise I might think of lace ankle socks perhaps?)

You could do blue tights. I’m not sure I would say the color on the dress is navy though, it looks brighter like a cobalt or royal blue. But anyway, full blue tights, or even full white tights due to the white detail in the dress would work. Or if you wanted to do something a little more interesting you could do lace ankle socks if you wanted to or you could incorporate a little of the detail from the print with blue and white striped tights or blue and white diamond socks. There were also Candy Fun Fair tights that you may be able to find second hand if you want something that will absolutely match.

I think this ask might have gotten eaten so I'm re-sending it. I preordered the Lost in Sea Blue dark blue OP, and it'll be arriving soon. I'm planning on coording it with pearl accessories and possibly a black pair of shoes and a black head bow. My question is about legwear; I wanted to go with the jellyfish, or at least a sea, theme, but I can't find much legwear that I feel would go with the rest of the coord. I really like sockdreams' tentacle socks- that style- but they're out. Any advice?

R-Series has a new set called Luna in the Sea which is most likely a response to Lost in Sea Blue’s popularity and the tights in the set would work very well with either. I also found these which fit the theme but I think they’re a tad busy to go very well with the coord. I think they would take away from the dress. These might be interesting though, in black or blue. You could also do gradient tights like these or these.

Hi! I was looking for some socks or tights (preferably tights) that would be good for aatp's Time of the Roses in navy as well as classic lolita in general, what do you recommend? Also, I don't really like heavily printed socks or tights. Thank you very much!

Everyone knows how much I love lace tights and sheer tights with opaque details so naturally I think these in either color they’re available in would be perfect. Other than a simple floral design like that, the best I could think of for someone who doesn’t like heavily printed legwear would be plain navy, cream, or dusty pink tights or socks.

Hi there! I own the Holiday of the Hulim Hulum JSK in blackxblack. What kind of socks/tights would you suggest I coord the piece with? I don't like the socks that match the set so I'm open to whatever alternatives you think would be good.

There are small roses in the print so maybe something gray/black with roses like this. A music print would work nicely too or just a pretty lace like these.

What tights do you think would go with bodyline's L515 in black? Ive tried wearing solid black tights but it looks a little bit plain. What do you think of checkered or vertical stripes? too busy? Thanks!!~~

I definitely do not think checkers or stripes are the way to go. If you wanted a print socks may be the way to go rather than tights in this case. There’s a lot going on with the dress and I think having a little break between the dress and the socks will help keep it from being a little overwhelming. You could go with a print that has sweets like socks424, or bows like Secret Shop’s 502. If you wanted to do tights rather than socks I would keep it fairly simple with a more subtle print like hearts or bows. It’s a little more detail than solid black but it doesn’t take attention away from the dress.

HI !!! I have AP Toy Parade in white and I don't know if I should get white or pink Dreamy Baby Room tights! I'm planning on having a pink blouse and pink shoes. Please help. :-)

I would go with the white tights. I think there’s enough pink in the print on the tights that they tie in nicely without being completely pink.

Hello, I would like to ask wich one is better with bodyline L136 storenvy(.)com(/)products(/)2494011-free-shipping-tights-socks-sockings-pantyhose-baroque-rabbit-poker-lolita-g or storenvy(.)com(/)products(/)1989463-poker-tights thank you

The first ones. The second ones are much busier which I think will look bad with a dress that’s already busy. I think the first ones have just enough detail to tie into the print but aren’t overwhelming.
