On Franny: Collared Pullover Sweater with KeyholePleated Chiffon A-Line Skirt in PoppiesMy Style Mews Socks, and Fame of Reference Velvet Block Heel

Aside from the fact that Franny is legit a professional print mixer (I mean, seriously, swoon!), she’s also savvy at rocking quirky socks. Notice the elements of her outfit: while together her sweater, skirt, and heels feel festive and fun, individually they feature classic silhouettes, a moody color palette, and sophisticated textures. A pair of quirky cat socks makes for the perfect finish! We suggest flaunting this meow-velous ensemble at your favorite wine bar, the opening night of your friend’s play, or just about anywhere really.

On Alainia: Long Sleeve Wrap Shirt Dress in ChevronLenora Dame Budding Brilliance Necklace in Midnight, Accent Your Ensemble Tights in PeacockB.A.I.T. Footwear Dance Hall Date Block Heel in Fawn, and Carefree Carry-All Backpack

See how Alainia’s ensemble still appears practical and posh despite her bold ‘n’ bright blue tights? That’s because she expertly styled ’em with a dress touting neutral hues and a timeless silhouette. She even went so far as to pick out one of the frock pattern’s colors to accentuate, creating consistency and charm in her overall appearance. It’s that exact technique that’ll make introducing creatively colored legwear into your look a cinch! Start with the toned-down dress or skirt that you feel most confident sporting, and pull one of its undertones to highlight. Add in versatile shoes and accessories, and, boom. How easy was that?

On Molly: Bar for the Course Earrings, Vanilla Milk Button-Up Top in IvoryWork of Haute Faux-Suede Sheath DressTo Fair is Human Tights, and She Shoes, She Scores! Bootie

How about working a print into the mix? While solid black tights certainly have their function, an understated print can add so much style and dimension to your look! Take Molly’s office-ready ensemble, for example.  She took her layering game to the next level by warming up a faux-suede sheath dress with a vintage-inspired blouse and floral tights. Don’t you agree that her pattern-inclusive aesthetic is sharp and intelligent?
