How I Style Tights in the Winter

Dressing for winter is like a double edge sword, twice as useful but also twice as many chances for mistakes. On the one hand you have soo many more cute cold weather accessories you can mix and play with, but on the other hand it can be a challenge trying to figure out how to layer, add, and subtract pieces all the while remaining stylish. This tricky equation gets all the more complicated if you’re not actually prepared for winter and have none of the a fore mentioned cute winter accessories. I admittedly was so NOT prepared for this winter. Being a southern girl true and true, this is my first real winter I’ve ever experienced in my 20 something years (apparently we’re still in “Fall weather” and haven’t even hit Winter in NYC yet). Despite it being officially ridiculously cold outside I’ve been in denial, hoping that maybe if I pretend it’s not cold, I won’t actually be cold). Needless to say, after basically freezing my butt off for the past few weeks I’ve been forced to admit defeat.

Luckily, I was recently given the opportunity to try out the No nonsense brand of tights and leggings. I received a pair of denim leggings and a pair of patterned black tights. For the first outfit I wore, I layered a basic long sleeve shirt under a bright chiffon button down shirt. I added a blazer for extra warmth and paired it with the denim leggings and knee-high boots. I loved the fact that everyone thought they were actual jeans, but I had the comfort of wearing leggings! In the second outfit I choose to amp up the warmth factor of a sweater dress by pairing it with patterned tights and another bright blazer.
