While both stars worked the suspender tights trend, they looked totally different! Find out how you can work them the right way, SHOP & let us know which style was best.

Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus both turned up showing off the suspender tights trend in their House of Holland Chain Suspender Tights by Pretty Polly. While the look is definitely youthful and fun, since it is a bit racy you want to make sure you balance out the rest of your look, keeping the get-up neat and chic, just like Selena did! Miley, on the other hand, opted for a more laid-back, mismatched style.

Miley definitely has more of a boho-chic sense of style and that’s exactly how she worked her tights — however, her outfit had too much going on! While you can definitely wear them with shorts and flats, it’s best to keep the look polished and a bit more dressed up since it is such a sexy trend. From the boots to the embellished short and printed tee, Miley’s look was all over the place — not to mention that she was wearing them during the day while running errands! I love how the star has her own sense of style, but I would’ve preferred to see her work the trend a bit more glam for a night out.

While Miley’s look was busy, Selena totally rocked it — and if you want to try out the trend, I recommend taking a cue from Selena. Since you will be showing some leg, your best bet is a platform pump or bootie that won’t distract from the tights. Feel free to pair them with a short skirt, mini or shorts — a nice pair of winter shorts in a leather-like material or tweed would work well. Personally, I love the look with a skirt — especially a pleated, high-waisted leather skirt. Again, you don’t want to the look to get too busy, and you want the focus to stay on the tights! The most important component is your top — definitely keep it more modest! Showing that much leg and cleavage will look cheap, not chic. I love how Selena paired a printed scarf and blouse to her look, balancing out the outfit.

What do you think? Do you like Miley’s mismatched, casual style or do you prefer Selena’s pretty polished look?
