As the weather gets colder, my mind turns to creative new ways to layer and bundle. Quite honestly, this winter I realized how sick I am of the whole “tights under a dress” bullshit. First of all… it’s the holiday season and no one wants that tight waistband bullying you into passing on yet another fudge brownie. Not to mention how it looks. Even if I slap on my sexiest pair of heels, opaque tights will still somehow always remind me of my tired third grade teacher.
So if you, like me, are over the dark, Spanx-like, sausage-casing labeled as tights… I offer you a sexy yet warm solution… thigh-high wool socks. Pair them to a sweater dress, add combat boots, and a wide brim hat and you’re in business. It’s the perfect, edgy-yet-sophisticated way to keep warm while still showing a little skin.
