5 Perfect Pairings: Tights and Dresses


When the colder months roll around it can be tempting to bundle up in your favorite jeans or cozy sweats, but sometimes you want to look a little more pulled together... that's where tights come in! No matter the occasion, tights are always a great option, especially when paired with the perfect skirt or dress. Here are five of our favorite tights and dresses/skirts combinations!

1. Weekend shopping

Shopping Weekend

Branch out from basic black with these Tights for Every Occasion in Red ($14.99 at ModCloth) paired with a loose-fitting striped sweater dress, like this Striped Knit Jersey Dress ($39.99 at Mango). To continue the Parisian-chic vibe, throw on this pair of casual but smart Legalle Brogues ($45 at ALDO) and some seriously sassy cat-eye shades, like these Kitty Shades ($40 at Nasty Gal). Keep yourself toasty warm with jewel-toned outerwear, like this Loose Candy-tone Medium-long Coat in Deep Green ($39.99 at BlackFive), which is a nice departure from the traditional peacoat. Finish off the look with the Chill Out on the Town Scarf in Red ($24.99 at ModCloth) to tie in with the bold tights and you're ready to shop till you drop!

2. Holiday party

XMas Party

Holiday parties and formals call for skirts and dresses, but your usual opaque tights just aren't fancy enough. Try building a look around a pair of romantic and glamorous patterned tights, like these Lace and Fishnet Sheer Full Tights ($24.90 at Express). The lacy look of these tights pairs perfectly with the Strap Lace Bralet ($65 at Topshop), and the cherry red of this Red A-Line Midi Skirt ($29.90 at Chicwish) adds a pop of festive color to the look (and the midi length is super on trend!). Accessorize with these gorgeous Side-Zip Platform Ankle Booties ($40.99 at Charlotte Russe) and a Classic Leatherette Clutch in Gold ($13.95 at DailyLook) to hold all of your beauty essentials. Happy holidays!

3. Classy in the classroom


A day of classes doesn't have to mean a sweatshirt and leggings! First, stay cozy by opting for a thick and warm pair of tights, like these Boho Candy Cottages Tights in Charcoal ($22.99 at ModCloth). We absolutely adore the tartan trend this fall, and this Green Plaid Check Skater Skirt ($36.74 at Chicwish) is gorgeous, especially when paired with this Cable Knit Crop Sweater in Beige ($44.97 at Chicwish)... how cozy does this feel? Finish off the look with your favorite pair of neutral riding boots, like these Pink & Pepper Regiee Boots in Cognac ($39.50 at 6pm.com), and grab a coordinating jewel-toned bag, like this Merona Satchel Handbag with Removable Crossbody Strap ($39.99 at Target). Pick up a latte and you're ready for that lecture!

4. Neutral with a pop

Neutral with a Pop

It can be easy to resort to a wardrobe of only neutrals in the fall, but all it takes is one pop of color to bring and outfit to life. Start with a basic neutral skirt, like this Women Chiffon Pleated Mini Skirt in Gray ($29.90 at UNIQLO) paired with this Cropped Long Sleeve Knitted Sweater in Beige ($14 at 2020AVE). Instead of a pair of standard opaque tights, try these Tina Over Knee Tights ($11.99 at boohoo), which go from opaque to sheer, creating the illusion of thigh-highs without having to keep tugging them up! Opt for sophisticated footwear like these Juliee Boots in Black ($39.99 at 6pm.com) and a structured cross-body bag with gold hardware, like this Duchesne Bag in Midnight Black ($29.98 at ALDO). For an oh-so-autumnal pop, we love this Halogen Strip Selvedge Scarf ($48 at Nordstrom) to keep you toasty and trendy.

5. Everyday edge


Sometimes a girl's just gotta rock some cat tights. You know you love these LOVEsick Cat Garter Tights ($10 at Hot Topic), and they can actually look cool and even chic when paired with basics, like this Maisy Basic Bodycon Mini Skirt ($8 at boohoo) and this '90s Square Crop ($14 at Miss Selfridge). Ground the look with black accessories with unexpected details, like these Leather Laced Up Pointy Ankle Boots ($27 at 2020AVE) and this Faux Leather Drawstring Flap Backpack ($35.01 at YESSTYLE). For some subtle color and some serious cool-girl edge, throw on a floaty kimono, like this Ink and Wash Print Kimono ($22 at Chicnova). Meow!

These tights are anything but basic, and there are so many ways to rock them all fall and winter long, no matter where you're headed. What are your favorite ways to rock tights, collegiettes? Let us know in the comments!
