Looking to transition your fave skirts and dresses into an autumn-ready ensemble? All you need is a pair of cute socks, tights, and a little styling magic! When it comes to color pairings, print mixing, and texture layering, our ModStylists are here to to help with some amazing tips and outfit inspo. Cue the turning leaves! You’ve officially got the leg up on fall style.
Let’s Talk Socks
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.
Rock a Color-Pop
On Alainia: Long Sleeve Wrap Shirt Dress in Chevron, Lenora Dame Budding Brilliance Necklace in Midnight, Accent Your Ensemble Tights in Peacock, B.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?
Intro a Print
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?
It’s obvious that our ModStylists are amazing at layering, and they’re a great resource for other style and size advice, too! They can help you pick the perfect outfit for an event, find adorable accessories for your favorite garment, or even just help you land on the best size option when you’re unsure.
