As we push deeper into autumn toward the inevitable cold, the warm weather just won’t seem to let go. It has been a fall punctuated by uncharacteristically mild days; one that has made getting dressed in the morning an adventure.
Stuck between seasons means stuck between wardrobes. With summer clothes that aren’t warm enough, and fall clothes that are a little too cozy, you sometimes have to improvise. My solution? A trusty pair of tights. It’s the perfect way to take a summery dress or skirt, and make it more fall appropriate. They also add that little bit of warmth you need to enjoy being out and about on these rare days.
On Monday, I paired a floral dress with black tights, brown boots, and a little black jacket. I thought black and brown toned down the brightness of the florals, masking its summer look.
When you’re in a pinch and the seasons have yet to sort themselves out, you don’t have to try and reinvent the wheel.
But no one says being practical can’t also mean being chic.
