Demonstrated by BAZAAR’s Kerry Pieri.
When curating your fall wardrobe, shorts and high hemlines probably aren’t at the top of your list. But to that, we say: why not?
Thanks to the versatile power of tights, you can wear almost any piece year-round—the trick is clever layering. To demonstrate, our Fashion and Features Director Kerry Pieri styled four different pairs of Calzedonia tights with outfits for four different occasions: work, date night, the weekend, and a formal night out.
1. CASHMERE TIGHTS WITH SHORTS FOR WORK
Some may balk at the idea of wearing shorts in brisk weather, but pairing them with Calzedonia’s cozy pair of super-warm cashmere tights makes them perfect for cold-weather styling.
Here, Kerry styles tailored schoolboy shorts with a plaid coat and combat boots—which adds an edge to the otherwise preppy look.
2. SHEER POLKA-DOT TIGHTS WITH A CARDIGAN DRESS FOR DATE NIGHT
A V-neck cardigan dress with a few added layers—such as a turtleneck and a pair of seamless, sheer polka-dot tights—can easily take you from work to dinner or drinks. Kerry complements the tights’ fun pattern with macro-embellished buttons.
3. OPAQUE TIGHTS WITH A CORDUROY MINI SKIRT FOR THE WEEKEND
For a ‘70s-inspired look, Kerry mixes three fall-ready pieces: a cashmere top, a corduroy mini skirt, and leather loafers. Each texture can stand on its own, but it’s the opaque Calzedonia tights in a warm gray hue that bridge the white-and-black duotones and create one fresh, modern look.
4. SHEER TIGHTS WITH A SATIN EVENING DRESS FOR A FORMAL NIGHT OUT
This black wrap dress, complete with dramatic statement sleeves and luxe draping, makes for a sophisticated look perfect for a formal evening. The rich satin sheen of the dress offsets Kerry’s super-sheer seamless tights—which allows for open-toe platforms even in brisk weather.
