Ahoy, maties! While the winter temps start to set in, the rules from fall fashion are still as relevant as ever. Trends such as choosing a statement coat, flaunting more is more when it comes to accessories, and layering up on sumptuously soft separates are reigning supreme as we dip into the final weeks of the year. And the biggest fall fashion staple without which we could never implement our winter wardrobe ideas is a pair of comfortable, controllable and universally versatile black tights. We’ve tried planning our outfits around shoes, bags and necklaces but we’re now convinced the one true item that looks should be planned around until the spring thaw is a trusty pair of black tights. They refine every skirt and supplement every dress as the winter chill keeps our legs from going brazenly bare. And this season, we’ve found no better pair to set our closets to than Hanes Seasonless Control-Top Tights. With an opaque finish and a suggestive hint at skin, the Seasonless Control-Top Tights are the most perfect pair of hosiery we’ve come across that works equally well for work and play. Available in both black and tan and available at Wal-Mart, the tights are easy to slip on and stay put all day, from meetings to cocktails to putting up your stockinged feet at the end of a long day.
And to celebrate how essential Hanes tights are as a fall/winter wardrobe staple, we paired them some of our must-have pieces for a festive and fabulous wardrobe getting into the holiday season. A statement skirt with thick black and white stripes is as stylish and “seasonless” as your hosiery. Pair with it a luxe sweater in a soft dove gray, a chunky linked necklace, statement earrings and sleek silver heels and you’re ready for the holiday party circuit or the end of year boardroom presentation. For a little jolt of color, we can’t complete this elegant, nod to nautical look without a colorful and undeniably warm pea coat. This curated look is just one of seemingly endless possibilities that can be paired perfectly with Hanes Seasonless Control-Top Tights, and we hope you’ll share with us all the ideas that come out of starting with your tights, and creating perfectly functional and fashionable looks that will carry us stylishly into the new year!
