Today’s Outfit: Tights are the Best Accessory

12 Dec

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”?
