hold me tight

Don't just pack away your collection of Malandrino minis and Alice + Olivia babydolls just yet! The transition of summer to fall clothing is my absolute favorite, because it is a prime opportunity to give your entire wardrobe a facelift!

Trade your bejeweled Choos for python flats, add a pashmina and a leather jacket, and you are ready to frolick in the freshly fallen leaves.

Finally, bring your summer favorites out to play by just adding my favorite accessory - tights!

I'm a huge fan of lace tights, fishnets semi-classier cousin, a la Blair Waldorf.

NYLON's September featured Alexa Chung in their It Girl editorial wearing a fabulous mini Chanel frock with a pair of black floral crochet tights by super luxe legwear maker, Fogal.

Perhaps a comparable trade-off would be these lace tights (with shockingly similar patterns) from Express under $20.

It started with Prada's Spring 06' collection, spotted in a phone booth with Carrie Bradshaw, and just maybe, over-the-knee opaque and sheer hosiery has found its way into mainstream fashion this season.

At least, I hope so!

And finally, a classic staple, Wolford Satin de luxe. From Miu Miu-esque puffed out mini skirts to floaty chiffon dresses, or even under a ripped-up jeans, these tights take the cake.
