When the weather starts getting cool I wear more neutrals. While I am a huge fan of color, I tend to do it in small doses through my accessories. It wasn’t until this Style Remix post for No nonsense that I ever gave much thought to adding color with my tights. In today’s post I am using No nonsense’s Super Opaque Tights in Shiraz (that is not only an on-trend color but also an incredibly versatile one) to show how you can use colorful tights to update some of your own fall looks. I’m showing you two ways I will be wearing mine this fall.

First, we have to talk about these tights from No nonsense because they are quite possibly the most comfortable pair of tights I have ever put on my body. Let’s face it, most women cringe at having to put on a pair of tights. However, with a 40 year commitment to providing high-quality, affordable, versatile and trend-right legwear for women who are confident in their own skin, No nonsense offers a full line of legwear including its new tights, leggings and shapewear consistent with the brand’s heritage of quality and innovation in hosiery and socks.

Speaking about No nonsense’s tights specifically, there are a few things I like about them. First, they are super soft. Plus, not only are they easy to get on, which is not always the case with tights, they feel good going on, which is also not typical. It doesn’t feel like the equivalent of putting toothpaste back in the tube when I slip my legs into them, yet, despite this roomy comfort, they sit closely and comfortably to my body while giving me a feeling of support and a streamlined look. What I also like is that these tights are super dark and opaque. When you bend or stretch the color stays consistent and rich and, as the weather continues to get cooler, I also know that my legs will stay warm. The last thing I like about these tights is the price. Most tights with such a durable and luxurious feel like these come with a much heftier price tag. Yet, these tights can be scooped up for under $10 at Nononsense.com or your local food or drug stores.

If you are looking for some inspiration on how you can wear colorful tights this fall, or how you can take your summer dresses into the cooler weather, here are two of my looks using my new favorite tights.

Taking a summer dress into fall

No nonsense Style RemixI wore this grey dress this summer and styled it during the warmer months with flat gold sandals or a pair of colorful wedges. By adding these No nonsense Super Opaque Tights I can now wear this dress when the weather gets cold. Tights are a great way to bring summer dresses into the fall. Before you pack your summer dresses away, look them over to see if you can wear them into the cooler months by adding a pair of tights, layering pieces and accessories. I also think women avoid colorful tights because they get stumped with the shoe question and wonder what color shoes to wear with them. While black shoes and boots are certainly a viable option with colorful tights, nothing is richer than cognac leather with deep burgundy shades, like how I styled these tights here with my boots. Lastly, with a patterned scarf that picked up all the shades of my outfit, this dress is ready for fall.

Giving an old dress a new look

Before you get rid of a dress that you have grown tired of wearing, think about new ways you can style it, like I did here with the same burgundy tights from No nonsense. In this more casual look, I added my cognac moto boots and some simple accessories. Between the knit dress and the comfort of these tights, this is will be a staple look that will have me looking polished but feeling extremely cozy.

These tights have made me a No nonsense convert, and I’m a real stickler about the quality of my tights because I rely on them so heavily once the weather gets cold. In addition to their fabulous tights, this fall, No nonsense has designed a curated collection featuring new fabrications and patterns, including Denim and Ponte Knit Leggings, Sweater Tights and Fashion Tights in bold prints. I am sure there is something for everybody’s tastes and styles. Definitely worth a look-see for your own style remixes this upcoming season. Perhaps the No nonsense Pinterest can serve as style remix inspiration? Also, be sure to visit the No nonsense website and follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
