October is one of my favorite months. The leaves start turning gorgeous colors, my favorite foods now come in amazing pumpkin flavors and those 90 degree heat advisory days are a thing of the past. Not to mention day light savings time, when we gain an hour of sleep! Yes, please! With all the fabulous things that come with fall it seems like every year I come to that point where I’m still desperately trying to hold on to my favorite summer looks. I’m not mentally prepared to give up my go-to dresses and shorts just yet. Luckily there’s a way to compromise between your favorite styles and the increasingly chilling weather, throw on a pair of toasty tights! These affordable must-haves can be true style savers. Not only can tights help take your favorite looks from season to season, but they also come in handy when you realize your favorite dress may be just a little too short than you previously thought. Along with being super affordable, tights come in a variety of colors, patterns and level of sheerness.
Now tights may seem like a no brainer when paired with dresses, but paired with shorts it can really look chic while staying warm. This Fashionista chose to rock her denim shorts and tights with a cropped sweater and leather jacket. She accessorized her look with black boots and a black fringe bag. The mix of leather, light wash denim shorts and tights give her a ultra cool, rocker girl vibe. Try a pair of patterned tights to add more fun and personality to your look. If denim shorts just aren’t your thing, try and pair of pretty and sophisticated tailored shorts instead in a heavier fabric like tweed. Paired with a ruffled blouse, opaque tights and flats, you’ll be looking prim and polished from day to night.
Just remember that even though the thermometer may be heading south, doesn’t mean your style has to. Your favorite spring and summer looks can still be rocked into the cooler months with just a few simple tweaks and tricks!
