ACCESSORIES REPORT: Amp Up the LBD

Leggings and tights have forever been female favorites. An essential to all seasons, tights and leggings make almost all pieces versatile and wearable, regardless of the weather. Whether amping up a little black dress or adding a splash of color (or pattern) to a monochromatic ensemble, printed tights are the perfect accessories to complete any outfit.

This Fashionista chose to do exactly that, by amping up her little black dress with a pair of patterned tights. The intricate floral design adds a hint of femininity mixed with a punk-rock, grunge vibe. She further accessorized with a light blue scarf (hello, pop of color), combat boots (to keep up with the grunge look), a pea coat and oversized sunglasses (a GWU girl staple). This mix of subtle, neutral accessories can completely transform that simple LBD in the back of your closet.

Spotted: Cynthia Rowley and Mandy Coon offered edgy yet playful spring 2012 collections, clad with an array of prints leggings and tights. Mixed with leather, metallics and sequins, printed leggings add an extra runway-ready aspect to any ensemble.
