How to style tights

Look 1 

This first outfit is pretty classy and I love that it is all black. This simple black dress goes perfectly with this pair of tights. The tights actually have a slight striped detail which I like as well. Over the knee boots are so in so I knew they had to be a part of this outfit.

Look 2

Look number 2 is a little edgier! I went with a cropped sweater, denim skirt, and cap but kept the whole outfit classy with a pair of loafers. The tights help add a feminine touch to the look that I love.

The next look is quite classy and would make a really cool office look. I love the blazer with these leather shorts and I have to say, tights add a lot to this outfit!

Look 4 

This outfit is pretty simple and easy to wear! I have layered my tights under a pair of ripped jeans which adds another style element to the look. Plus the extra layer helps out with the cold weather!

Look 5 

Look number 5 is pretty classy and I feel like it could definitely work for the office. I love this look! It is definitely one of my favorites! There is something about styling a pair of shorts with tights underneath. I love the layering and color tones of this look. You could also remove the tights to make this outfit work for spring.

Look 6

Outfit 6 is a little different! In this look, I played around with layers. I wore a turtleneck dress with a shirt on top. Adding the belt bag creates a more fitted look. I love the black tights against the snakeskin boots! This is definitely a fun look! 

Stockings style

Look 7 

In this last outfit, I once again went with tights and a pair of shorts. I dressed it down with a funky sweater and added a bit of color with a pair of tinted sunglasses. I love all of these outfits! I am definitely going to start wearing tights more often! Let me know which outfit you like best in the comments!

    I like all of your looks!

    Any suggestions for FISHNET tights? Mine are light pink, almost flesh-tone, and cotton blend so washable in theory (from OTTAWA Canada!).

    Thank you for styling!
