Sheer & Spotted

Another day another pattern...this time I threw on a pair of big dotted tights. For this post, I will show you how to take a patterned tight from day to night with a few key pieces.

It was unseasonably warm this day so I kept it casual for work in a pink silky dress, faux leather vest, knee high boots, and the patterned tights.

tights: urban outfitters, dress: forever 21; vest: h&m; necklace: madewell

Later on that night I attended an anniversary party for One Lounge in D.C. I kept the tights and added a sparkly tank top, black wool shorts, white blazer (yes, white can be worn all year round in my book), and booties. I also wore a bold red lip to give this black and white outfit a pop of color.

Blazer: Madewell; Tank: J. Crew; Shorts: H&M (old); vintage gold chain

The funny thing is we didn't even plan to match! I guess BFFs really do think alike ;) The key to both of these outfits is keeping the color palettes relatively neutral, and playing with textures (sequins, leather, etc.) to add interest instead of overly bold colors and conflicting prints.
