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, so I don’t need another nude, sun tan or black opaque pair of tights. Keep reading. Tights with shorts is a fall and winter fashion trend that will never go out of style if you love summer!
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 girl. 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
I’ll admit it. I like cheap and easy, on-trend fashion which reminded me about living in the nineties as a teen and wearing tights with shorts. Tights are the ultimate $10 dollar accessory for the season to complete an outfit. But don’t forget about Rockbox – it’s the ultimate $20 dollar accessory for all month long. That’s money well spent on easy, low maintenance and high fashion style.
Fishnet tights are perfect for bike week, a rock concert or Halloween…but a floral pair is stylish and classy with a vintage, unexpected touch of style for every day, all day wear. Thank you Target for selling $10 fashion tights. Bring on the cold weather.
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.
Show me how you’re wearing tights with shorts and tag your stylist @badtothebride. Even I can use all the help [inspiration] I can get.
