(This might be in the wrong category, but I don't know where else to make this post.)

I collect tights and have over two-hundred pair. Some of them are even still in their original package! But I seem to have an over abundance of red tights. I also create my own dance costumes, but I just can't envision any sort of color combination that will go well with red tights--not even for normal daywear. I do have some pointe shoes in special colors like red, but it still did not seem to work well colorwise in terms of trying to look serene, romatntic, beautiful and majestic. I always end up looking like a giant chicken.

Does anybody have any suggestions? Especially for shoes?

(If anything, at least something for normal daywear? Remember, I'm going for an enchanting, romantic, majestic look.)

Almost anything, I think black, gold or silver would look stunning. It really depends on the look you're going for.

Daytime, I'd go neutrals/metallics on top, maybe some cute black ankle boots, then bring the red back up with a pendant necklace or red earrings. Have fun with it!
