Textured Tights

calypso st barth sweater

I’ve typically steered clear of anything resembling a fishnet tight, but I seriously can’t get over how much I love these crochet tights! They add just the right amount of texture to every outfit and skirt I’ve worn them with. For this particular look, I love how the chunky sweater, subtly textured skirt, and crochet tights work together to spice up an all black and white outfit.

PS: How fun is this graffiti paint-splattered wall in my neighborhood?! I love it!

    Love this look on you, Jess, especially the black piping offsetting the white of your skirt. And those tights are SUPER cute but look to be kinda pricey. Worth it?

      I am a firm believer in investing in quality tights, especially since I wear them so often in New York. Personally, I don’t think $32 is that much for great quality tights! Definitely not Wolford, but not drugstore brand either — a happy medium. Any time I’ve bought a less expensive pair, they end up snagging or running after a few wears. What brands do you typically go for?

    Love the outfit!! I’m loving the chunky sweaters and structured skirts this season. Can you write up a post on all of your bags. I noticed another great one in this post and would love you opinion on bag options/costs and how you justify all of them.

    I think fishnets can work when paired with the right dress/skirt…Blair on GG comes to mind! I’m really loving the texture of these tights though, especially paired with the winter white skirt! Beautiful!!!
