Here's something I saw on Pinterest that I actually tried straight away (yes it does happen!): Patterned tights under distressed jeans. It solves so many problems...
- How do I keep my legs warm in the winter when my jeans have holes in them?
- What do I wear on my feet with my monk shoes, brogues or loafers when I don't want to wear socks?
- How can I get more use out of all those patterned tights I bought when it's too cold to wear skirts?
So Pinterest isn't just a highly addictive social media platform that keeps us entertained for hours on end pinning things we'll never bake, sew, wear, construct, paint, knit, build, cook, visit, create or copy. Oh no... sometimes we actually try doing some of that stuff. Amazing, huh?!
Seriously, though - it was one of those ingenious styling tips that I tried and it really worked. It got a great reaction on my Instagram feed (you can follow me here if you're not already!) and it'll be perfect for the winter-to-spring transition that I mentioned how much I'm looking forward to in my last post. In the meantime I can still wear it with my smart white coat (or smart black coat) and tartan scarves (boy, I'm gonna miss those come summer).
What do you think... are patterned tights under holey jeans something you can see yourself trying? What other simple styling tips do you have - or have you seen on Pinterest? Do let me know!
