Just when I think I couldn’t love accessories any more than I already do, I go and discover yet another reason why accents really pull everything together and make any outfit just a bit more special. Current obsession: patterned or embellished tights! Aside from being rather practical (I was all about the bare leg trend until tights became trendy and I realized they do tend to keep you warm), I love the way embellished tights add that dramatic element to a look. Case in point the outfit I’m wearing in today’s post. Though always a fan of head-to-toe black, this particular look requires a special touch or two in order to make it a bit more chic. Normally, I opt for metallic accents (something that I’ve done in today’s post as well), yet I believe it is the pearl embellished tights that really help take it to the next level.
Though embellished leg wear looks really great for cocktail hour (chic with a little black dresses yet equally stunning with slinky jewel-toned numbers), patterned tights can work rather well for day as well. Personally, I like to pair them with slouchy coats (like this one) or oversized cardigans (LOVE this number on SALE now) and mini dresses or skirts and casual boots. What about you guys, how do you guys feel about embellished leg wear?
