Adding Color with Tights

A monochromatic look is classic and chic, but when you want to make an outfit fun, just add color!

I picked up this retro-inspired shift at a clothing exchange and wanted to punch it up a bit so I added bright tights. And for even more punch, I belted the dress with a neon belt.

Dress: Swapped
Tights: Target
Boots: Borrowed
Belt: Swapped

The color (and white piping on the dress) takes this from serious to playful. And if I want to be more office-appropriate, I can easily swap out the belt for a white one and put on black tights.

I don’t think fashion needs to be serious and I like expressing myself through my clothes, so I’ll stick to bright tights for now. Purple, yellow or blue tights would all be fun. And since the dress is solid, it’s practically begging for a fun, patterned pair of tights.

I have a feeling you’ll see a few more combinations of this dress in the coming winter season.

I’m linking up with Style Elixir’s Style Sessions, Transatlantic Blonde and The Pleated Poppy today. See what others are wearing!

  3. Colorful patterned tights are one of my favorite accessories. I even have a pair almost identical to yours. I always feel very happy about wearing them!

  4. I love adding bright tights to all-black ensembles; in fact, I don’t think I’ve ever actually worn all-black. It’s just not in me!

    yay to that! the neons here are in beautiful harmony, they are so close to what fresh spring flowers look like.

    + we’re on the same fashion vibe here! I must say I’m a sucker for great tights. I also like to get tights the colour of my fave shoes or boots, it aaaaalways steals the show.
