Hello, it’s me Bad to the Blonde. One way to transition into fall when you love summer is to wear fashion tights with shorts. Key word, fashion. Basically I spent over 10 years dancing and don’t need another nude, sun tan or black opaque pair. Hosiery has a new look and you need it in your wardrobe.
Without a doubt it’s all about balance when completing an outfit. There are a few key styling tips when wearing tights with shorts so you don’t look like a walking nineties fashion trend or a high school student. This is one of my favorite ways to wear shorts in cool weather and look like a trendsetter who has it going on.
Tights are only $10
The best $10 you’ll ever spend is the newest accessory in street style. Worried about snags? Don’t break the bank. But you can certainly splurge with brands like Spanx to Gucci, and more. Like any accessory, it comes with a price and there is a lot of options in the category.
Thanks to the runways, tights don’t still remind me of growing up and Christmas. The cold weather accessory has become an aesthetic. Fishnets are perfect for bike week, a rock concert or Halloween…but a pattern tight is super trendy. Floral and lace are formal and unexpected for all day wear. That’s money will spent for high fashion.
Incorporate fall’s hottest color in a cropped knit sweater with high waist shorts in a dark wash. Sad news, summer ended, so put away light wash everything. (Spring will be here before you know it.) I have on Levi’s 502s, which are my favorite short because they fit perfect!
Finally, finish the look with a pattern like a bright floral bootie. Coordinate here! Some part of an outfit has to match and have a common theme. For instance, if I wear fishnets, I wear moto boots. If I wear floral tights, I wear floral booties. My style is totally feminine edge – I call it biker chickish. I like to ask myself, “What theme am I wearing?” Flower power with a bit of badass…alright, feeling it. Contrast everywhere else. The Gianni Bini floral bootie with a pointy toe completed the outfit with the added colors and pattern that I was looking for. Side note, I scored at the Dillard’s clearance center for under $30. Had to brag!
Whether you fancy yourself a fashion connoisseur or a budding stylist, you’ll feel like a work of art in these fashion tights. Slip into your favorite little black dress with pearls and pumps for a classic look, or style yourself an eccentric ensemble with bright colored boots or hells, a patterned skirt or denim, and a sweater or graphic tee. By all means go wild with the fabulously endless possibilities with floral fishnet tights.
