Creature

New York experienced a wave of beautiful weather over the weekend, and I fully embraced it with my fashion choices. We've heard of statement necklaces and heels, but today I'm experimenting with a pair of statement tights. Today I feel like a concrete jungle creature.

(Zara coat, Theory dress, Fendi tights, heels)




When I first saw these tights, my heart was beating with excitement and head racing with thoughts of "What should I wear with these?" They're definitely bolder than I'm used to for everyday wear, but isn't fashion about exploring creativity, breaking boundaries and having fun? It's like a subjective puzzle without an obvious "right answer" (but of course wrong answers known as fashion faux pas). Since these tights are a bold print and color, I kept the rest of my outfit and makeup as neutral and clean as possible. I paired the statement tights with a pair of runway Fendi heels, first worn in my 2014 post

What do you think about my look, and how do you style patterned tights? Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts!

  9. Wow, your entire monochromatic outfit is jaw-droppingly gorgeous! First of all, I love that two-toned coat: the structure and boxy cut look so elegant on you :D Then those amazing tights, what a great trend and style to pick out and inspire the rest of us with! I have a pair of polka dot tights and those are as wild as my statement tights have gotten; maybe it's time to try something a bit more daring? And let's not even get started on those ah-mazingg shoes-- the wife of my boyfriend's BFF has an amazing shoe collection as well and got a pair of Fendi booties that were from this same collection. I think she really want the heels you were wearing though!
