Style Advice of the Week

I know it’s a little early given that it’s only the middle of August, but I already have fall fashion on my mind. I’m not sure if my fall fixation is due to my irritation with the unbearable heat we’ve been experiencing for the past few weeks, or simply because I’m excited to start shopping for fabulous autumn pieces that are making their way onto the floors of my favorite retailers. Even though we have a little more than a month left until it’s officially fall, now is the ideal time to do your back-to-school shopping. It’s time to utilize your creativity and find ways to transition your summer staples into next season’s wardrobe. There’s one thing I swear by when it comes to this tricky seasonal shift: my trusty tights.

This Fashionista demonstrates the fashionable impact a cool pair of tights can make on an otherwise basic outfit and a pretty dreary day. Her hot pink tights offer an unexpected bold pop of color to her neutral ensemble and give her look a fun, flirty feel. Even with hardly any accessories, this Fashionista stands out in her summer dress that can now be incorporated into her fall wardrobe with just the right tights.

Tights are a necessity, end of story. They’re perfect for any season and can instantly spice up any outfit, as modeled by this week’s Fashionista. Stores are stocking up on these wardrobe essentials and carry them in various colors, prints and patterns. Add a bit of floral edge to your look with these tights from Urban Outfitters. Wear them with this simple graphite skirt, denim shirt (leave the top two buttons unbuttoned) and tan leather brogues for a casually chic vibe. When it starts to get chilly in the fall, throw this slouchy cardigan over your top; it’ll be a bit of an androgynous counterpart to the feminine touch of the floral print. Whether you wear crazy tights or stick to basic solid ones, you’ll definitely be able to get the most out of your favorite summer dresses — and what Fashionista wouldn’t love that?
