After a long summer of setting those legs free, the thought of constraining them and the dilemmas of pairing them with new season pieces can seem a little daunting. From fishnets to opaque black tights, it’s time to embrace the leg accessory and make them your focal point.
Fishnets are very synonymous with tough, fashion-forward edge. Soften the grunge root with injections of pink into your autumn ensembles, and if you’re looking for something a little more subtle, layer your fishnets over a pair of semi-opaque tights.
If you don’t like the idea of those dull black tights blending into your outfit, clash with a pair of colourful stockings that emulate the autumn-palette. Pair with new season animal prints for a party feel, and finish with patent boots for a touch of high shine.
Distressed denim is everywhere right now, but the practicalities can leave you feeling a little chilly. Layer up with fishnets underneath, coupled with sheer tights for grunge cool- the perfect temp drop solution.
Your tailored day look can look a little stiff and structured come the evening. Swap out your opaque tights in favour of a patterned pair- it’s all in the party details.
Unfortunately for shorts lovers, the temperature drop isn’t ideal. You needn’t put them to back of your wardrobe however; the addition of tights makes them a year-round staple. Keep it sporty like Sarah Synder with soft jersey separates, paired with flesh coloured tights and fishnets for a cold weather approach.
NEW SEASON KNITS
What better piece to marry your tights with, than your new season knits? Create the ultimate comfy look with a cropped jumper and A-line skirt, finishing with a knitted pair of tights. Super snug!
We all know the pain of having to pack away your favourite summer dresses… but why not re-work your warm weather pieces? Make like blogger Pandora Sykes and add tights and ankle boots into the mix. Autumn, nailed.
