Tights with Sandals & My Refined Style Link Up!

February 4, 2016

Maybe you’re thinking, what the heck is this gal up to now?  Tights with sandals?  

how to break style rules, socks with sandals, fashion risks
Yep, I’m breaking more old rules and taking on another controversial trend!

But it’s not like I thought it up.  Alexa Chung has been leading the way.
funky and fifty, sandals with tights, sandals with socks

The trend did make this spring/summer dress winter-worthy (well, California winter).  Want to wear one of your favorite dresses out of season, but not liking this trend? Keep the tights and cardigan/wrap, lose the sandals, and add boots or booties instead.

If you want to give this trend a try, my only advice is wear it with confidence and attitude.  You have to look like you did it on purpose, not like you just didn’t know any better!

Outfit details:  Dress via Thred Up, Prada shoes – vintage/consignment, wrap – H&M, Jewelry –Salt
Some great sandals to wear now with tights or socks and later without:

    You rocked this look lady! (As you usually do) that dress is gorgeous and the sandals pull the entire look together. It is bizarre to think of wearing tights and sandals together but it is very stylish and actually pretty comfortable right? Lol thanks for hosting the link up – hope you have a great weekend! Xo

    OMG that dress! It is like modern pop art floral and you know me, I absolutely, most definitely love red. Love how you winterized that lovely dress. Perfect VDay date night look. Love the fun shoes, too.
