TREND: Short + Tights Equals Endless Possibilities

Fall is my favorite season for a reason, no rhyming intended. Being the (money-conscious) Style Guru that I am, I adore playing around with my existing wardrobe and trying out different ways to wear last seasons clothes in an updated way. I'm always scoping out celebrities and especially off-duty models for inspiration on how to style pieces in exciting and trendy ways. One way to keep a modern look is by layering pieces and changing combinations of clothes in order to breath new life into your outfits. Fall is the best time of the year to experiment with clothes–especially layering and that is what this weeks trend is all about.

Tights and shorts are an inseparable duo this fall season! Celebrities and models alike have been spotted rocking this trend and the best part is that you don't have to be a celebrity to pull it off!  Our Fashionista this week shows off her sense of fashion-forwardness with black lace tights paired underneath a pair of distressed, denim shorts. She spices up her black tights with a teal and white patterned top and my everyday go-to piece–a fitted black blazer. She completes her look with a pair of neutral, light brown boots. 

Tights and shorts are the ultimate fall look, because honestly, who wants to give up that fabulous pair of shorts you bought over the summer? Every kind of short and every kind of tight is fair game with this look because it's all in how you pair them. Shorts and tights can be mixed and matched to fit every body type and every style and they are great for every weather type. To channel a grunge-inspired look, go with black lace tights like our Fashionista and pair with torn-up, high-waisted jean shorts, a long plaid collared shirt and a studded black leather jacket. Add in uber-trendy lace-up boots and some throw on red lipstick and you're set. For a boho vibe, a la Nicole Richie, throw on some brown tights, a pair of denim shorts and a white, flowy, button down shirt. Add a detailed vest over top and maybe some fringed booties to pull it all together. Turn your shorts and tights into a preppy affair with light pink tights and a pair of high-waisted wool shorts and toss on a fitted cardigan, a leather belt and some sweet Mary-Jane heels to finish.

Hint: Don't be afraid to show off some color! Tights are meant to be a statement. Check out this slideshow for ideas on how to wear bright tights.
