Its the 1980′s screaming at us all … we might as well put a scrunchy in our hair and listen to Tiffany.  All the popular stores are carrying some version of them but I can’t really decide if I like them or if they should stay in the past….

Inspirations of Style: Peplum

Inspiration of Style:

Peplum

 

 I am totally into peplum right now! Its all over the pages of magazines and in dozens of stores. Peplum is a ruffle attached to the waistline of a skirt, dress, or even a jacket.  This style is so feminine but also bold. 

When I think peplum the first name that comes to mind is Victoria Beckham. She embodies ladylikeness yet she has such a bold fashion sense.

This is how you wear peplum and my favorite picks of this fashion-do !

Inspirations of Style : Stocking Obsession

Stocking Obsessions

While we only have a few months left of the winter chill I thought I would showcase a few of my favorite stocking patterns that are now so fashionable. I find wearing patterned stocking with sweater dresses and boots to be the easiest combo without looking like you worked for hours on an outfit. Although the animal print tight is very hip I can see this trend a little harder to get away with at the office, or at least maybe my office, but it’s a great change-up to your weekend sweater dress and flats outfits! I know you might be thinking flats & footed stocking? Really? But my co-worker was wearing simple black tights, a dark sweater dress and gray flats… it really worked! In a way it is a different take on the color block craze that is very in-style for Spring/Summer 2012. Kick your style up a notch and wear your sexy stilettos with a crazy patterned stocking and party dress…. Don’t tell me you won’t go by unnoticed.

 CLICK HERE: Leopard Print Sheer Tights, ASOS $17.91

I personally love the open weave look…imagine dark brown open weave tights, knee high brown leather boots by Lucky Brand and a gorgeous amethyst purple sweater dress. Throw a belt onto that outfit and be ready for your 9AM meeting at work, shopping on the weekends of dinner at a chic Asian Fusion restaurant in the city with friends. I’ll Cheers to that!

CLICK HERE:    Traditional Open Weave Tights, Payless $7.99

Another way to wear the tights-craze, thanks to Princess Kate, is to wear a simple silhouette with stocking & stilettos! You can look very polished & posh by wearing nude sheers or opaque black stocking and classic closed toe heels.

Sometimes the best way to add a pattern to your tights to look edgy but still feminine is to do a bold lace pattern or a simple polka-dot.  Black, gray and nude have all been done…why not try a bold burgundy or refreshing navy? Just make sure you wear complementary colors and stick to solids or refined patterns …you’re stockings are making the statement …and so will you!

CLICK HERE: Floral Lace Tights, Forever 21 $10.80 

CLICK HERE:  Jukebox Tights in the Pony, $34.99 

I will let you in on a great secret… Spanx now makes various patterned tights so you stay skinny & seemless while still stylish…. An investment in 1 or 2 of these pairs can keep you going…without those rolls!

 

CLICK HERE: Patterned Tight-End Tights® Argyle Diamond, Spanx $28.00

CLICK HERE: ASSETS® Reversible Shaping Solid Tights, Spanx $18.00 

 

Reversible Tights… GENIUS!

I couldn’t leave this one out…. Maternity Shareware Tights!

 CLICK HERE: ASSETS® Marvelous Mama Opaque Stripe, Spanx $20

There are so many patterned tights, from polka dots & lace to fishnets & solids sold at almost every store that it will satisfy everyone’s taste. If you are like me and are afraid you’ll put a run in those pantyhose then I suggest 2 things:

  • get your patterned stockings at a low price from stores like Forever 21 & Payless
  •  carry clear nailpolish to prevent any runs from tearing any further!

 

Happy Stocking Shopping!
