As the weather cools, it pains me to put away some of my favorite summer sandals and I dread packing up my gorgeous collection of platform heels that make me feel oh-so tall and sexy.
During Fashion Week, I noticed a lot of models and fashion types still sporting their YSL Tributes with dark opaque tights and cute mini-dresses or skirts. I used to think that the combo of tights and sandals would be as bad as socks and Tevas, but done the right way, it’s chic, modern and definitely sets you apart from the masses. And for all you nay-sayers, if it’s good enough for Givenchy and Balenciaga then it’s good enough for you too!
There are so many great tights available now, so the options are endless!! Here are some fun ideas and tips to help you extend the life of your favorite pair of summer heels.
If you’re more conservative, start with a simple peep-toe pump and solid opaque tight.
Try a high-heel T-strap or platform sandals for the best overall look.
Pair with mod-minis and flirty dresses!
Avoid gladiator-style sandals and anything with a lot of straps.
Peep-Toe shoetie’s are perfect for tights too!
For a more formal event, try a delicate stiletto but stick with a dark opaque tight.
Avoid patterned shoes and stick to solid colors in patent or suede.
If you’re feeling confident about your stems, go for tights in a bold color like eggplant or burgundy.
