If you’re a dress person but the cold weather forces you to shelf ‘em, tights (or stockings) will be your new best friend. Here we have a pretty busy-patterned dress with some diamond-patterned tights. It’s a little hard to see, but it’s the subtlety that makes it work.
BRIGHT & CHECKERED
This outfit definitely follows the “big print with small print” rule. The large squares paired with the tiny flowers don’t allow any awkward competition between the two patterns.
PS. Add solid-colored tights if it’s too cold to go out bare-legged!
