Accessories Report

Often I find myself looking for something new and interesting to add to my wardrobe. However, I don’t want to break the bank. Statement tights are the perfect solution to this problem. For a small price, they can express your individual style and make your look new and unique. Further, tights are very versatile. Worn under shorts, dresses and skirts, tights can transform exclusively spring pieces to winter appropriate looks.

The Fashionista that I found this week is wearing a pair of black shredded tights.They are a perfect combination of grunge and sophistication that coordinate wonderfully with her overall look. Paired with a mini skirt, cropped top and coat, her tights add interest, unexpectedness and give it a sense of ease. I love how she added a pair of socks to her look as well. It keeps it looking stylish, but comfortable.

Tights can be found in a multitude of styles; the options are truly limitless. If your look is preppy, try a houndstooth print or add a pair of over the knee socks. If you prefer something a little quirky and cute, go for a colored tight and adorable feather print. Or if you are simply looking to add femininity and elegance to an outfit, lace is a classic choice. Whatever your style or whatever the look you hope to achieve, there is a perfect pair of tights for you. Do not be afraid to experiment and try something new. It is all about being yourself and making it your own.
