Tights or Bare Legs: How to Style Both

Tipsy Tuesday this week helps you decide how to wear tights or bare legs, with simple tips on how to style each look. 

Here are some  tips to help you decide what to wear on your legs and your feet when you #justgetdressed - in a dress - this fall and winter:

  1. Bare legs are totally acceptable and some fashion gurus argue they are even more "on-trend" than tights.  A shoe in a color that blends with your skin tone will be the most flattering to your bare leg.
  2. Take it from Kate Middleton -- when it's cold or you hate to bare your legs, tights are completely acceptable.  These are the nude tights  she wears because they look bare, but provide coverage and at least a little warmth.  Stick to closed- toe pump-type shoes when wearing nude tights:

3.  If I'm not going bare-legged in the late fall and winter, I personally opt for black opaque tight like this highly rated pair that's only $8.

4.  When wearing black tights with black shoes (I.e. loafers, booties, knee-high boots or pumps) I think it looks best to balance out all the black on your legs and feet with some black in your outfit. For example, in this outfit I swapped out my light denim jacket for a black cardigan when I added the black tights:

5.  How about a little compromise? During the fall, I love the look of tall boots with bare legs...giving just enough leg coverage. Then when it gets colder, just add your black tights. Notice how I added a black scarf to tie in the black boots (see #4).
