Last year, I bought a pair of grey argyle tights from Target (see similar here and here). Despite the classic and sexy appeal of these tights, I haven’t worn them much. To ensure that I wore them today, I created an outfit around the tights.
Since the prominent color in the argyle pattern on the tights is grey, I opted for a grey skirt to anchor the look. The skirt is paired with a white, long sleeve tee topped by a purple swing jacket for a pop of color.

Cute tights. I love tights with patterns.
I must say that I look to your blog for outfit advice. Often I buy pieces and then don't take the time to think what can I pair this with until I look at what you have posted. Then I "get it". I guess I am a visual learner. I say all of that to say, thanks for what you do.
@Sing: Understandable! They provide such easy ways to update the wardrobe for fall 2011.
@Shulammite: Awww thanks! That's so wonderful. I've become so visual now, too, that I have to see outfits photographed to really "see" them and get it.
You have such a fantastic way of pulling things together, I love the tights.skirt and that gorgeous colored jacket! A+
I'm loving the look. Thanks for the inspiration!
I have those tights! And I feel that anyone else who has them is a smart cookie! Great look. BTW – Roshini sent me.
Those tights are cute! I love the purple and you know that the twist out is ON POINT right? lol
Love those argyle tights!

@CaramelNaps25: Thanks! My stylist shaped up my fro really nicely. I've been rocking a flat twist-out on my blown-out hair all week.
@Jani: They are pretty, right? I can't believe I hadn't worn them much.
