I am always looking for new ways to incorporate fun into my fashion, and patterned tights are my accessory obsession of the moment! You will rarely catch me in a dress, as I am all about mixing and matching pieces and creating a look that is all my own. Being a huge fan of the shorts-with-tights look, I have been loving tights with patterns to jazz up my outfit and add a fun element of surprise. Patterned tights have the ability to elevate an outfit to another level, and are an easy yet perfect way to add some flair and personality to shorts, a skirt, or a dress. We have seen them all over the runways and streets, and I’m a huge advocate of this trend! Geometric shapes and feminine florals are a massive hit this spring, and incorporating these patterns into your tights is the easiest way to implement the trend in any climate. In particular, Kate Moss’ Saint Laurent sparkle tights that she wore to the Carine Ball in Paris during PFW were truly stunning and noteworthy. I decided to rock this look on my own, adding patterned tights underneath my pants at our trunkshow event last week, and these tights added the perfect element of fashion playfulness for when the slits on the sides revealed my legs!

What do you think of this look? Would you rock it?
