One of the many perks of dressing for fall weather is that we can layer, giving us added opportunities to wear what’s already in our closet, but in different ways. A must have layering piece for fall is tights. Tights instantly add a chic/trendy/funky vibe to any look and with the variety of inexpensive options, the fashion sky is the limit.

If you haven’t worn tights since elementary school, then here is a general guideline for a piece of clothing that will take you into fall and carry you through winter.

Colorful tights. Much like the trend of colored jeans, tights add instant vibrancy and fun to any look. Add a splash of color to a conservative black, gray or navy shift dress by adding a pair of tights. I suggest hot pink for black, yellow for gray and purple for navy for trendy color combinations.

Print or patterned tights. You can find almost any type of pattern for tights. Flowers, hearts, checks, or stripes are popular options. I’ve seen kitschy pairs with the face of Marilyn Monroe, birds, and other designs or icons that make an original statement. Picking an unusual print adds personality to your outfit.

Fishnets. One of my favorite pairs to wear. You can buy the original thin stockings or go for a wider-spaced version for a subtly sensual look. My favorite ways to wear fishnets are with pencil skirts or under loose dress pants with peep toe heels showing just a glimpse of fishnet style.

Footless tights. These can be worn with a chunky sweater dress, a longer, belted button-down shirt or under your favorite mini. These tights are all about girly-girl sweetness and look best when worn with flats.

As with most fashion choices, there are no limitations to how you can wear your favorite pair of tights. Tights serve as both a wardrobe staple and an extra accessory for when the temperatures start to drop. Which style is your favorite?

I'm a huge fan of tights! I pretty much always go for the black printed tights similar to the 1st photo. Nordstrom always has a nice selection of printed tights.....I really like the footless ones too! This comment has been removed.
