Trends Report: Pretty Tight

Let’s face it; most of us have pretty tight clothing budgets lately. Fortunately, a quick and easy way to update your wardrobe this Fall is with, pardon the pun, pretty tights.

Hosiery is hot, and the more unusual the better. Colorful opaques, wild patterns, lace, and interesting weaves can make your go-to silhouettes look like they came straight off the runway. This season’s tights also complement trendy shoe options like peep toe booties which are all the rage.

A quick tip with these nouveau hose is to keep it tonal. Skirts and dresses should be in the same color family as your tights and shoes – it will create a long slimming effect. If you haven’t already, complete your Color Profile to find your most flattering colors.

I busted out my tights for the first time today, and am wearing them with my beloved Fluevog platform sandals. Hurrah for tights!
