At the first sight of September – and a look at all of the fashion issues of national magazines — I start thinking about updating my wardrobe with falls transitional trends: luxe-looking fabric skirts, fall-friendly sheer layers, bold heels, and menswear inspired accessories. The one fashion staple that remains the foundation of any cool weather look is tights.
The Fall 2010 Runways were swathed in patterned stockings, jewel-toned tights and fresh takes on fishnets. Legwear has emerged as a versatile accessory that has the ability to define an outfit or add the finishing touch to a polished look.
I tried Hanes Silk Reflections – The luxuriously silky tight provides the perfect balance between sheer hosiery and opaque tights for effortless dressing from autumn, to winter, to spring. Hanes Silk Reflections Sheer Tights (SRP: $10.00) are available in black, gentle brown, granite, nude and plum at department stores nationwide.
