TREND: Time for Tights

It’s here. It’s finally here! The temperature has officially dipped low enough to start the layering process. First up, tights! Whether you like them sheer, opaque, Technicolor, or patterned, the time has finally arrived. I like this Fashionista’s geometrical choice. The middle seam is reminiscent of an era gone by and runs along both the front and back of her legs.

You may recall the fashion forecast calling for ladylike dressing this fall, and this Fashionista seems to fit that prediction to a T. The combination of a ¾ sleeve cowl neck sweater and a waist cinching skirt is quite flattering to her figure, and, of course, quite ladylike. The skirt is the perfect complement to the tights…or are the tights the perfect complement to the skirt? Regardless of which piece inspired the outfit, the whole thing just works.

But wait, there’s more! Don’t forget about tights’ cousin—socks. Ankle socks are another fun way to play with layers this fall. They look great when worn with ankle booties, with just a hint of sock visible above the lip. I am even going so far as to recommend wearing them with flats—especially oxfords.

Speaking of shoes, check out this Fashionista’s studded mary-janes. I saw these from a mile away and am loving every inch of them.

Hint: Try a pair of novelty tights such as Calvin Klein’s tuxedo strip tights as seen in their fall ad campaign.
