We Wear Tight, Tights

Colored tights, printed tights, tight-tights! Lets go shopping for our most favorite accessory of all!
________________________________________________________

Last week, we talked about the granny square and House of Holland (which, by the way, their 2011 Fall blanket maxi dress is SOLD OUT at Open Ceremony!) Never we fear. Did you catch a glimpse of their printed granny square tight? They’re chic, 70’s funk, and a hell of a lot of fun!

Get these designer prints for $27.95 at My Tights.

Oscar de la Renta’s 2011 Fall campaign is something to be inspired by. I’ve grabbed a few stills to show you. Check out those green thigh high tights in their street style video. That bright green hue is amazing; don’t you think? It’s not too blue nor too yellow: it’s juuuuust right!

We Love Colors has a similar pair. Score them for only 8 bucks! The color is called “Scout Green.” See the color collection here. Buy them here.

If you enjoy a luxe pair of tights like these Wolford’s from ASOS, then you probably know that Leo, their leopard printed tight, is sold out everywhere. So I went on the hunt to gather a few savvy alternatives so we don’t feel like we missed out!

Top To Bottom:
ASOS | Leopard Print Tights (14.64)
The Stylish Fox | Savanna Leopard Print Tights by Fiore (10.80)
Urban Outfitters | Leopard Sheer Tight (14.00)
TopShop | Leopard Print Tights (16.00)

There are a lot of brand and style variations to choose from. Here is one of our favorite Chictopians, Nataliefeo, donning leopard print tights in blue!

Fashion floral tights are a pretty statement maker. But I have the urge to rough them up a bit: snag them, pierce them, get them nice and gritty. How about pairing them with a 90’s grunge baby doll dress with a leather or denim jacket and boots?

Brooklyn Industries has their pair of floral tights on sale right now for 12.99!

Let us never forget the coveted neutral tight. It’s not quite as formal as black or nude nylon, but it quickly adds sophistication and a sense of modesty to any outfit ensemble. Paul Costelloe shows us a fun take on the neutral tight in the Fall 2011 collection by pairing it will wild hair and intense colors and heavily textured fabric.

Try these Ralph Lauren opaque tights from Macy’s (16.00).

Lastly, I could not end this post without mentioning House of Holland’s suspender tight for Pretty Polly. (That would be a HUGE no-no!) Have you’ve seen these? I have been holding back from buying them for a good 18 months or so. I think it had to do with the fact that so many other online indie vintage stores style with these. (I have a mainstream complex that I’m currently battling.) In any case, I’ve decided that I need these in my wardrobe–STAT.

Find them right now at ASOS (21.95).

I can’t wait for tight season to begin! Thanks for browsing some of my faves with me.

LF Fall Preview

The LF Fall Preview was LOVE at first sight yesterday! (see more here) I cannot get enough of the silhouettes and neutral color palate that seemingly intensifies the splashes of indigo blue. Check out the angle sleeves, fishtails, sheer fabrics, 90s throwback references, and Southwestern vibe! There’s something for everybody!

My most favorite look has got to be the leopard pants with green brimmed hat. What can I say? The hat and the print sums me up in just one look! Which is your fave piece?

Chic Transition: Tips to Shopping the Transition

credit: don't say no fashion

The Summer transition into Fall always seems to catch us by surprise. We tend to ignore it because, well, it feels so warm this week! It has proved a never-ending trap. The unpredictable swing could mean fog, a cool breeze, or re-visiting summer heat. Don’t get caught off guard! Here are few key tips on what to consider when shopping for Summer to Fall clothing.

 

 

 

B E A T  U N E X P E C T E D  W E A T H E R!

1. Look for pieces you can layer
Days often start cool, only to warm up by the end of the afternoon. Do look for blouses, tops, that you could throw a jacket or blazer over when it’s cool, but that are cool enough for when the day warms up. Pair with trousers on cooler days and skirts & shorts on warmer ones.

2) Keep it light while staying covered
Do
 make sure that these pieces are lighter to offer a breeze when you need it. Also, look for dresses with slightly thicker material to beat the chill. Tip: Vintage dresses were often made with thicker fabric

3) Slip dresses are still your friend
Indian Summer often hits us when we least expect it. So don’t pack up all your hot-weather wear just yet. Do cool off with light-fabric dresses like slip dresses when Indian Summer strikes. Once the season has made its change, these dresses make perfect nightgowns to lounge around in.

4) Fair-weathered rompers
The romping trend doesn’t have to end with summer. Do opt for its closely related cousin, the jumpsuit. They come in many fabrics and styles from casual, to our modern-style chic jumpsuit.

5) Transition effortlessly with current trends
Leopard print is still making its way to Spring 2012. Do note current and upcoming trends when shopping to ensure that your pieces will live past the transition.
