Hello My friends. While there are issues much more profound, we fashionistas are trying to look autumnal while wearing summer weight clothes. Global weirding, anyone? What to do?
My outfit felt more like the hues of the leaves falling from the trees, despite temps in the high 70’s, when I added statement tights, in a rich tawny port.
Girl in a gazebo, anyone? 🙂 How to read Fall when the temps say Summer! Yes, its a Thing!
My handkerchief hem dress was an easy choice for a birthday luncheon on Long Island. It is comfortable and has enough detail that I do not feel like I am wearing just any old LBD!
The rich and burgundy-ish color of the statement tights, added some warmth, and are Lucy proof ( My shih-tzu !) – a must when traveling with a pup on your lap! The color transformed this outfit!
My studded jacket is a thrifted find, and my buckled booties serve me well with traction soles. My braided headband makes my hair look finished and ” done”, but it is a simple hack. Below summer flowers on an autumn’s day. Confusing, right?
The Jewellery I wore, in a creative collage that incorporates my $3.00 leopard bag, thrifted many years ago, and the pretty foliage is featured below. You will see the foliage is in the same hue as my statement tights.
I dislike the overuse of the word “statement”. Focal point may be better; but however you call it, tights in a number of decorative varieties are having a true moment. We are seeing lush embroideries, fishnets, micro fishnets, metallic fishnets, stripes, plaids and jewel tones. Statement tights can really transform a meh outfit into one that is outstanding.
It is barely fall and already I have worn 4 different kinds of statement tights. I am especially fond of the micro fishnets, just the right amount of texture, and not a true “Look at Me”, accessory. Do you remember? Look back at future posts and you will see 4 iterations of statement tights, my fav being argyle mixed with a floral dress and a plaid jacket.
Below, because it is a beautiful image , I share with you my MIL’s tablescape, a true work of art in this autumnal color scheme. Pantone would be proud!
For more reading on this trend, check out this post from the Blonde Salad. You will be dazzled by the imaginative and creative ways tights have punched up these ensembles. From Street style to Runway, to your own treasured closets, add some fun tights to create fabulous ensembles. Just adding fishnets under distressed and cropped denim is a very cool touch. Remember, details matter!
Have a wonderful week ahead! XOXO , Elle
