How to Rock Colorful Toghts for Fall

EN :: BLOGTOBER 5 : Here we go! My blog finally turned into fall as well. I really love fall because I like wearing skirts in combination with ankle boots and leather jacket. What I love however more is Indian summer which is unfortunately not so common in Ireland. My Slovak family and friends though could enjoy it in full glory last days while Ireland was getting ready for the hurricane which was the theme number one in Ireland lately. Everything was closed today – schools, courts, shops, banks, etc. – to protect everyone. The part where I am living was luckily not so affected, but I have to say we had a strong wind throughout the day as well and I still can hear it. I really can´t imagine how it looked like somewhere in Cork or Wexford where it should hit in its biggest strength! I hope everyone is safe.
Well we were shooting this outfit last week and I decided to wear black and burgundy combination. Burgundy is definitely one of my favorite fall colors and it really belongs to this season. Very recently I bought these colorful tights and to be fair I had a problem to combine them with some pieces. That´s the reason why I stuck with the same color and I picked the burgundy shirt on top. I would definitely like it with some burgundy ankle boots to create some monochromatic look and elongate legs a little bit. Another tip is wearing over the knee boots and let the color show just a little bit to brighten your outfit up. As far as colors I would maybe combine them with some black, dark blue, grey or even mustard top! And I would not combine them with two or more different colors as the tights are a very noticeable piece catching others attention.
How about you? Do you wear colorful tights? And do you find them tricky to combine? ♥

SHORT RÉSUMÉ
combine the tights with pieces in the same color as tights and with black
if you want to add colors, pick one contrast color
do not combine them with two or more different colors to prevent yourselves from looking tastelessly
choose neutral black shoes or shoes in a same color as tights to optically elongate legs
if you are afraid to combine colorful tights in its all glory, try trendy over the knee boots and let them peek out just a little bit
those braver can choose all outfit pieces in similar colors and create extravagant monochromatic look “tone in tone”
remember that these are not rules just my opinions and tips…fashion has no boundaries and you can play with it accordance to your style 🙂

A Pop of Color with Pink Tights

i love adding pops of colour to my outfits, particularly in the winter! i tend to wear a lot of black and white in the colder months because its what you find the most of in stores. i think coloured tights are the perfect way to add colour to any outfit, you can find them almost anywhere in different colours and patterns. i usually try to link the colour of the tights to a colour that is in the rest of the outfit. for example in this particular outfit that i am wearing i matched the colour of the tights to the pink in the dress. or you could use the tights as a pop of colour in a black and white outfit.
As for shoes, in most cases black works. you don’t have to have shoes that are the same colour as the tights, although i do that from time to time.

Happy Friday guys!  Hope you all had a great week!  Mine was pretty low key, mostly relaxing after a very eventful and busy two weeks of traveling and trying to catch up on some work.  When I have all sorts of things on my plate, this color combo never fails me.  Black and olive with a touch of denim transcend seasons in my book, and I took my favorite date night outfit from summer to fall just by switching out the tank for a sweater and adding some tights and booties.

MARCH!

We start the countdown for spring. To celebrate the entry of the month, I propose an elegant and sophisticated outfit. A red dress with a knot in the front and sleeves three quarters.

Do you guess where it is from? And it is!
The new Almatrichi collection. Collection that has me totally in love. This dress is also in the classic black. This is for multiple occasions, from romantic dinners to cocktails and even more classic ceremonies such as a wedding.

And you, for what occasion would you wear a red dress?
