Happy Monday babes! Today we’re talking tights. As it gets colder out tights are a great accessory to wear with dresses and skirts or under ripped jeans. I prefer tights with a pattern on them because I’m all about adding details to an outfit. My Urban Outfitters tights have an all over polka dot pattern and garter design around the thigh. The garter design is a fun play on lingerie, I wanted to compliment the lingerie-look with a silky slip dress.
The combination of the tights and dress is a tricky one because this outfit could easily be interpreted as ‘bedroom wear’ or too sexy. I purposefully chose this slip dress to prevent that from happening. The dress is understated, simple and girly so it softens the overall look. It’s all about finding balance.
These chunky heeled boots were the perfect addition to this sexy, soft-grunge look. The boots are a heavy contrast to the girly dress. The tights bring this looks together by acting as a transition piece.
I know it’s probably too cold for most of my readers to be wearing a tank top dress this time of year, if you want to copy this look add a black saggy fur coat! I meant to photograph the jacket option, but forgot to bring the jacket on the outfit shoot with me, oops! I also forgot to iron the dress so most of the editing I did on these photos was removing wrinkles.
