…on falling temperatures by adding patterned tights under your dresses, skirts and shorts. You can play it safe with opaque, or experiment with a fun pattern in argyle, quatrefoil, stripes, polka dots or even lace-print. And of course, now’s a great time to break out a haute pair of fishnets or back-seamed stockings. When worn with a demure pencil or pleated skirt or even a fitted dress, they look quite professional and not so “working girl.” And even better, tights can be an inexpensive way of turning your look up a notch without breaking the bank; you can find an array of styles at reasonable prices at Target, Macy’s, Belk and Dillard’s.
Note: Our experience with thigh highs has taught us they tend to roll down at the most inopportune moments (like while we’re in line at the bank!). We also aren’t recommending nude pantyhose for anyone of any age, for any occasion. Instead, dare to bare legs that are smooth and moisturized (ahem)! And if you absolutely must wear knee highs (gasp!), please remember that the top edge near your knees should not be visible when you sit, stand or walk.
