For those that feel confused when it comes to carrying off particular styles yet still wish to look their best when the rapidly evolving arena of style is concerned, look no further. I understand how getting an outfit distilled to perfection can be a daunting task. This is precisely the reason why it is important to follow a particular set of fashion codes. For instance, when attending a function where I suspect I’m about to get eyed from top to bottom by everyone as I walk through the door, I stay confident by pairing a colourful or dark dress with the ideal pair of classic tights. It helps me maintain a ladylike charm whilst appearing calm, composed and ready to socialise.So to project a chic look through this ‘less is more’ style statement, start off by getting a pair of black opaque tights or coloured opaque tights. What I recommend is steering clear of the white opaque tights as they can be quite tricky to pair up with the correct colour combination and can come across more like girls opaque tights rather than those befitting a woman.Another thing is that white opaque tights normally stand out brightly and tend to draw unnecessary attention to your legs rather than subtly complimenting them. Stick to coloured opaque tights as they portray a more womanly image. It may even be worth matching them with your entire ensemble, as Japer Conran does in his Autumn/Winter 2013 collection at London Fashion Week. The tights are incorporated in to create matching outfits i.e. pink tights with a pink dress and so on. It takes us back to the classic style of matching every garment and accessory within an outfit to present a secure put-together look of certainty.If you wish to be a bit more daring you can mix and match colours. Although it is important to always stick to dark shades like burgundy or blue. Vivienne Westwood did an exquisite job of pairing up a range of quirky styles in a highly elegant manner in her recent Red Label Collection for Autumn/Winter 2013. For instance, she put together a burgundy set of tights with a burgundy dress and cardigan to go alongside, but breaks it up with darker and lighter shades.Girls who normally pair opaque tights with clashing shaded dresses and tops commit serious fashion crimes. If you are intent on adding colour to an outfit whilst remaining chic, a personal recommendation of mine would be wearing opaque tights in a navy blue colour. Navy coloured tights greatly compliment a plain black or white dress to break up the simplicity and monotony of an outfit to avoid receiving daggers as you walk into a room. They portray an image of style know-how.Ultimately, the perfect way to wear your tights is by keeping them intone with the outfit you have on. If you do happen to be slightly more artistic try going for a colour-blocking look to allow an easy day-to-night switch. You can do this by pairing some red opaque tights with a brown coat and matching the accessories such as any hats, scarves and gloves to the red shade. Either way, you are sure to have perfected the minimalist style down to a fine art.
