Outfit Ideas for Tights

Hey guys! Sorry for not posting in such a long time. I'll try to be more active from now on. I recently got a new camera, Canon Rebel Eos T4i (yay!), so I'm super excited to start taking more photos for the blog once I get the hang of it more! That means more ootd's and other fun things that aren't always pulled from other blogs or sights (well mostly just Pinterest, since I'm pretty much obsessed with it).

It's been getting pretty chilly lately here. and I've been trying to experiment more with layers to stay warm while looking cute! One way to achieve the layered look and add some more warmth to your outfit is with tights. Tights are a great way to stay warm if you want to wear a dress, skirt, or shorts during chilly weather (probably not the best idea when it's freezing outside, but you know what I mean) or just to add more layers to the outfit if you really love that look.There are countless different styles of tights from polka dots, to hearts, to zig zags, to the super popular "ugly sweater" print and so on. The difficult part for me sometimes is trying to figure out how to put them into an outfit that's casual enough for everyday wear. I actually have a brown pair and a black pair of tights with little "zig-zags" on them that I got from forever 21. I can literally count the number of times I've worn both of them on one hand in the past year. I've never been able to think of a way to wear them that I would at least feel confident about in public. Now I've been looking around for ideas on how to fit them into a cute outfit and I have plenty to share!
Note: I've found these on Pinterest and other sights so I apologize in advance that I'm not giving credit.
 I love this outfit so much! You can wear tights under a cute little dress with a cardigan, jacket or sweater and a matching scarf. You can pair it with your favorite booties and your good to go! I love love love the white lace dress in the pic matched with all the other colors. Reminds me a lot of fall.
Next up are skirts! So many different options with skirts. You can wear it with a little plain neutral skirt in the pic or maybe with a floral or patterned skirt. If it isn't too cold you could wear a cute little top, or try a long sleeve shirt or sweater. Another idea is an over sized sweater(but not too big that it covers your adorable little skirt!). 

Shorts shorts shorts! If you are in love with a pair of your shorts and you just are dying to wear them then pop on some tights underneath! I think they look best with light blue jean shorts or maybe even black or maroon. Really if you wanted you could wear any color. When your trying to decide what top to wear you could go with anything. Just think of it as matching a top with shorts.
 The last one is an over sized sweater. If your wearing tights though, you would probably want to wear some shorts over them too (because tights are generally sheer or pretty thin). Again, you can match your sweater with a cute scarf and some boots!

Hope I have helped sparked some inspiration for future outfits. Don't be afraid to wear tights, put those dust collectors to some use! That's all for now - Stay fabulous!
