Q: What’s the fastest way to make a simple outfit come to life?
A: Wear brightly colored tights.
It’s a no-brainer, really. If I don’t want to think too much about piecing an outfit together, I go all-black and pull on some cheerful tights. Color blocking (juxtaposing large areas of bright colors in one outfit) doesn’t ever seem to go out of style, and this is a subtle approach to that trend. Besides being a fantastic cobalt blue, my tights are soft, supple, and super opaque (not to mention, warm).

Shoes by Karen Millen…it was one of those moments where I popped into a store I’d never noticed and the stars aligned. Last pair. About 90% off retail (we’re talking under $50….I know!) and they fit like a glove. Patent leather, 5″ heel, 1.5″ platform and a fitted ankle strap. Can we say “magic”?
