Popping on a pair of lace tights under a staple summer ensemble is the way forward. Hosiery is no longer strictly for high class events or extra warmth. Adding a sultry pair of lace tights underneath your go-to denim cut-offs or even a simple summer dress is the perfect transition into a breezy summer night. Tights are an essential in my wardrobe for two main reasons. They have a serious slimming effect on your waistline, and can elongate almost anyones legs. Not to mention, they are the perfect tool to gracefully progress your summer favorites into your fall wardrobe.
This Fashionista’s floral fish net style lace tights immediately caught my eye. She paired her hosiery with bleached denim shorts, a classic black scoop neck T-shirt, two-toned accessories and grungy lace-up Vans. This Fashionista completed the look with her Top Gun-esque mirrored aviator style sunglasses.
Stockings have not been forgotten this summer. Floral, lace, printed, polka-dots—you name it and there are tights out there light enough suit your summertime style. If you’re going for this Fashionista’s look I would pair these vintage lace tights by Free People, with distressed denim shorts from H&M. Similar looks has been spotted on style savvy celebrities such as Alexa Chung, Miley Cyrus and Kate Moss. Don’t skip out on tights, stockings, or hosiery simply because of the summer sun. There are plenty of light and breezy tights that can complete your ensemble. Tighten up Fashionistas!
