Shopping Your Closet: All You Need Is Tights
It’s easy to transition your entire summer wardrobe into fall with a few pairs of tights. Yes, that’s all you really need.
Throwing some tights in the mix is insanely cheaper than buying a new wardrobe (the Hue tights, above retail for only $12.50 or 2 for $20) and you can really create tons of new outfits with just a few pairs. Tights can function merely to keep your legs warm when it gets chilly while also adding style with bright colors and patterns.
And you can do it all with everything you’ve already got cluttering your closet. Here are some looks to try:
1) Tights with a summer dress. Pair a floral dress with tights and black heels for a sleek, updated fall look. Florals are a hot trend this fall, but there’s no need to buy new pieces when you have summery dresses already! For solid color dresses, like black or navy, add colored tights for a funky, eye-catching look.

2. Tights with shorts. Pair dressy shorts with black tights and heels to make them look stylish and cold weather-appropriate.
3. Tights with a skirt. This is a look you have probably worn before, but take a look at all the skirts in your closet. Could you wear them with tights? Can you add some pizazz by pairing them with something fabulous and bright? You’ll probably find a few you haven’t thought to toss over tights, which means all new outfits! Here are some examples of skirts that would look cute with tights:
