Styling Tip: Wear Patterned Tights

One-Minute Makeover Tip: Mix It Up With Patterned Tights

You don't need to buy a new wardrobe to update your Winter looks. All you have to do is tap into your wealth of already-awesome wardrobe options and exercise your impeccable sartorial skills. We've turned to our greatest secret weapon — our chic community and fashion-obsessed Fab editors — for simple tricks to instantly breathe new life into the back of your closet. For today's tip, it's time to get leggy with our love of texture: mix it up with patterned tights.

  • Patterned tights add depth, texture, and spunk to any ensemble. Let them do the talking when worn with a casual wintry layered look. Conversely, dress down a formal outfit with a whimsical print.
  • Don't be afraid to pair your patterned tights with equally playful prints. No need to be matchy-matchy — the more fun you have with the print and pattern mash-up, the more dynamic the finished silhouette will be.
  • Play up your feminine side with girlie patterns. We absolutely adore heart-embellished tights as a cute, easy style add-on. Or if you prefer a daintier dotted print, rock 'em with a pretty floral dress, a silk blouse, or lace-inspired number.

I love that middle look. The demure dress + edgy tights works so well.
