Tights for sandals can be tricky to find and difficult to style if you’re not sure what you’re looking for. In this article we’ll introduce you to our top five pairs of sandal toe tights and toeless tights to help you find the perfect pair for you. And, even more importantly, we’ll give you some top tips on how to style them with your favourite sandals.
Let’s start with the tights themselves. If you’re wondering which tights you can wear with sandals, it’s all about the toe. To successfully wear tights with sandals you’ll need to invest in a pair of either:
Sandal Toe Tights
Tights without darker, reinforced seams around the toe section. This means your toes are covered but it is not as obvious to other people that you are wearing tights. This type of hosiery can be worn with absolutely any type of heeled sandal.
Tights with absolutely no toe section at all. These tights are designed to leave your toes bare while still allowing you to cover your legs. Toeless tights are usually designed with a subtle toe loop to keep your tights in place and are ideal for wearing with peep toe sandals.
Now that you know which type of tights can be worn with sandals, let’s move on to the best examples of these essential hosiery solutions.

How to Wear Sandal Toe and Toeless Tights
Now you’ve invested in a pair of top quality tights for sandals it’s time to nail the styling. When all you want is to get all the benefits of wearing tights without the hassle of worrying about your open-toe situation, you simply need to stick to these simple rules to make it happen.
Here are our top tips on how to wear tights with sandals:
Tip 1: Look for Thick Toe Straps on Shoes
If you’ve opted for toeless tights with the toe thong you should look for shoes with thick straps over the toes to wear them with. Toeless tights will not work with shoes that have super skinny spaghetti straps as the edge of the tights will most likely be visible. You can also wear toeless tights with peep toe and slider style heeled sandals, as most of the lower foot will be concealed beneath the shoe design.
Tip 2: Avoid Wearing Tights with Flat Sandals
It isn’t all too clear why, but tights somehow do not work as well with flat sandals as they do with heeled styles. You’ll have to trust us on this one, avoid wearing tights with your flat sandals wherever possible. Odds are you won’t be wearing tights with such a summery shoe type anyway, so this shouldn’t be a problem for most of us.
Tip 3: Not Got Sandal Toe Tights? Tuck the Seam Under
If you’re in a fix and haven’t got time to buy a pair of toeless or sandal toe tights, you can attempt a home remedy technique. Try carefully sliding the reinforced seam section over your toes and underneath your foot where it will be hidden. This will only work if your toe seam is relatively thin. Alternatively, try a pair of opaque black or patterned tights if you have some, as these tend to have less visible toe sections.
