Jazz Up Your Outfit This Fall With These Leg wear Picks and Tips

October 15, 2012

Showing off bare legs during the cooler months doesn’t have to be your only option when there are so many textured, color and printed tights to choose from that can up your outfit ante to the ‘HOT’ status.  But, when coordinating tights within a look, it’s not as simple as just putting on any ol’ pair.  There are ways to wear that won’t ruin your look.  Here are my suggestions:

Color Tights

– A great way to color block an outfit

– Can add another tone to a monochromatic look

– If petite, you can elongate the appearance of your height by wearing tights the same color as your shoes or ankle boots.

Textured & Pattern

– Don’t wear a color that is too bright or a texture that is too provocative such as, fishnets in the office.  Now, of course that sounds like a no-brainer, but I have seen it all.  Some folks really don’t know better.

– Make sure that the texture of your tights compliments the texture of your skirt.  For instance, if you are wearing a tweed skirt, try a texture that mimics the rigidness of tweed such as lace.

– Don’t pair with an outfit that is too busy.  Instead, use the textured tights to add a special pop to your outfit.


– A perfect pairing with long, or knee-length chunky sweaters and cardigans.

– Should be styled as an additional layer with skirts and dresses.

– Looks best when worn with kitten heels, flats or ankle boots.
