Today's post is about 'dressing the legs'. I'm a big lover of tights, long socks, leg warmers and all forms of funky leg-wear, needless-to-say I LOVE autumn. I have a little rule. No opaque tights before October. And I'm sticking by that. But that doesn't mean I can't plan for next week!
I read an article a few years back where SATC styling mastermind Patrica Field said that she thought dressing your legs was really important, and I have to agree. The easiest way to turn a simple outfit into a really interesting one is to whack on some wild tights.
With this all in mind I popped into M&S for a browse and their new range of very stylish fashion tights caught my eye...
These leopard print tights from the Autograph range (£9.50) are lovely because they are completely black and are more of a pattern than a print, unlike another leopard pair I have. The Limited collection star tights (£12) look VERY much like the ace Henry Holland ones I've seen Jessie J wearing. So I'm going to give them a go. There were quite a few other cool pairs including bandage style tights which are quite like the expensive (£32) Wolford tights Cheryl Cole wore in her Promise This video, so if I like these two pairs I might be making a return journey.
I also picked up these gorgeous knee high socks which have great textured knitted patterns on them and will look great with my boots, over natural tights.
I didn't actually buy these Sam & Jo cute knee high socks - they were part of my leaving present when I left the mag, but I absolutely adore them. In fact I might even wear them tomorrow, for my first day at my new job, as an Acting Account Manager for a super PR company, which is one of the mystery projects I recently mentioned!
On that note I need to go get myself organised.
Wish me luck...
