Hello friend! If you’ve been following me for some time now, you know that I adore wearing skirts. While my penchant to wear skirts came around slowly, it is a style I have fully embraced. First, if you need to catch up, read my previous skirt code posts. The third reason that I opt to wear skirts is that it allows for me to have fun with tights. Pairing a skirt and tights is a simple way to increase the wear of your skirts.
Because we have a relatively mild winter in Southern California, I can still comfortably wear skirts in the winter. That allows for me to use tights as a fun accessory. Choosing a skirt and tights over a pair of pants has many more possibilities for a fun outfit. Whether I choose a great color or a fun pattern, tights can bring an added element to the outfit.
For this outfit, I specifically decided to wear solid colors in my shirt and skirt so that the tights and shoes stood out. This is to demonstrate my point that even with a simple outfit, patterned tights and shoes can bring in so much character.
Now of course, you can be more creative and mix prints in your skirts and tights, or even include your shoes. You know I am always up for a good triple pattern mix. And this is my exact point, wearing a skirt allows you to have the opportunity to wear two patterns on your bottom half. Whereas if you were wearing pants, you would only have one item and thus one pattern! I rest my case!
Since there is so much focus on the tights and shoes, I kept the rest of my accessories minimal. I added another pop of color with my gold purse. As for my wrists I threw on a fun arm party for one and let the other one go bare. Lastly for my earrings, I chose a bold pair, the Zosma drops from Baublebar.
Because I love my arm party so much, here is a close up of it. I am wearing my Daniel Wellington Dapper watch (you can use code “POLISHEDWHIMSY” for 15% off of any watches). I am also wearing my Trellis Lane Aria and Olivia bracelets (you can use code “POLISHED25” for 25% off all jewelry).
In conclusion, it really is fun to have another item of clothing to mix up colors and patterns. Wearing skirts and tights is an easy way of getting that opportunity. Hence the third reason that I prefer to wear skirts over pants! How do you feel about wearing a skirt and tights? Which one are you more interested in adding in a pair of tights: a pattern or color?
