Fall styling tips: tights and footwear

If you're a real girl's girl then you'll want to wear your dresses all winter long. Luckily, the fashion gods invented tights and stockings to keep you warm through your feminine fashion choices. Not sure how to wear all the bold tights seen on the runway this fall? Here is a guide to help you through some no-fail pairings:

While the inspiration for these matchups is based on current trends, you can easily head to a used clothing to pick up garments to mimic these looks.

Pinstripes
From preppy and school-appropriate to an edgy after-hours look, you can style this legwear option many ways. Wear navy pinstripe tights with an above-the-knee skirt and pointed shoes for sleek gams.

Knit 
As it gets colder you can move on to heavier weight stockings. Some are made from chunky knits while others have a solid yet cozy fabrication. Pair these with riding or lace-up combat boots to help you trudge along in the snow.

Polka dot
