Style Advice of the Week

Fashion during the winter months is definitely the most wonderful time of the year. Its the time of year to wear warm coats, boots, gloves and embrace all clothes dark. Its easy to get caught up in those all-black ensembles because, well, black pretty much goes with everything. If you do find yourself in gloomy winter outfits, adding colorful accessories is always an option. But if you are as daring as Fashionista, bright tights are the trend for you this winter.

Colored tights may bring back memories of your kindergarten picture-day outfit or make you want to be sitting on the steps of the Met in your school uniform waiting for Queen B to give you a command but Anna Sui has found a way to make them look fashionable and wearable with her fall 2012 collection. This collection had colored tights galore that were not at all childish but rather chic. From cobalt blue to hot pink and clashing prints, Anna Sui made this trend for the daring Fashionistas of the world. This collection was all about keeping colors and patterns alive this season by layering bight tights under pants, patterned dresses and shorts. In the world of Anna Sui, fall and winter can be colorful seasons too.

This Fashionista took on Anna Sui’s trend perfectly with her burgundy-colored tights underneath a white dress. Her look is simple and classic and her tights give her outfit a perfect amount of color. This look is ideal for the Fashionista wanting to try this trend for the first time. Add a muted pair of colored tights like these by Free People to a simple dress or pair of shorts for starters. And if you are a Fashionista who is ready to fully embrace this trend try these tights by Kate Spade and you will be Blair Waldorf minion worthy in no time.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Colored Tights

Style Advice of the Week

When the temperatures aren't quite warm enough to go out with bare legs, but black tights seems too dreary for the current sunshine, colored tights in fun shades are the perfect way to go. Not only will they instantly brighten up your outfit, but they can easily complement other colors and patterns as well. 

This Fashionista nailed the look flawlessly. Her emerald green tights were the first thing that caught my eye. Colored tights are not an everyday occurance, as many Fashionista's choose to brighten up their looks with colorful tops and jewelry instead. But this Fashionista put her brave foot forward and paired emerald green with navy to create an unexpected, yet suprisingly chic combinaion. 

The nautical inspired navy and white striped dress is a very versatile piece. Right now, this Fashionista proves it looks great with a fun pair of colored tights, but this piece can also transition into summer months paired with tan sandals or wedges and a jean jacket for extra warmth. This Fashionista chose green in order to stray from that “matchy matchy” look, but stuck with an overcoat in the same navy shade as the dress.

Navy is a great alternative to the traditional black overcoat, and can easily be paired with most ensembles. She keeps the coat unbuttoned, allowing the stripes of her dress to peek out, while still remaining cozy during her Sunday shopping trip. 

With most of the outfit very feminine, this Fashionsta adds a bit of edge by slipping into her her brown leather combat boots. This toughens up the look without going overboard. Her combination of masculinity meets femininity creates a well-rounded look that several shoppers were sure to be gawking over. Layered bracelets on her wrist and a classic gold watch were the cherry on top of a perfect weekend outfit everyone should try.
