dear taylor

....dear Taylor.....it's been a while since I've done one of these, and last week I got a request for another! So wahoo here we go! Her email read : I recently purchased a fabulous new pencil skirt in navy however I wasn't able to wear it very many times before the temperatures dipped. And I'd really like to wear it again but with what tights?! What are the best color tights to wear with a navy skirt? I'm stuck!


OOO girl great question! I love me some navy ...slacks, sweaters, but skirts those babies in winter can be tough! So I know the feeling. It depends on where you work or where you are headed. For me personally in the corporate environment I stick to a sheer-er navy tight, so there is some difference between the solid opacity of the skirt and my leg. I love ones with tiny navy dots! {This reminds me I need another pair, my old ones died, darn runs!} Or a neutral light grey. Again in the corporate environment I don't have much leeway  However if you are in a more casual workplace or going out with friends  I'd suggest trying a deep burgundy/wine color.

For shoes, I'd stick to a neutral color, I wear my heeled brown penny loafers. I'm not afraid to channel the nerd I am! ;) But a great charcoal, or navy pump would work fabulously as well. (Eeps...I really really want the babies below....)

For all I'd opt to have a bit of sheerness to the tight and not an opaque tight. And I'm kinda loving dotty tights right now, add some spunk but don't scream I'm a kid. But you can try a charcoal sweater tight and chunky knit sweater - depending on the formal-ness of the skirt. The options are endless, once you figure out what you are working with!

I think I want to wear mine next time kinda like this!!!!

1. Blouse // 2. Earrings // 3. Lips // 4. Necklace // 5. Watch // 6. Da SHOES

*I think I need these shoes!!! Imagine them here....then paired with denim....and with skirts, and slacks...Oh MY! And I do not own blue pumps!!!

  1. I tried on those Frankie pumps in the prettiest fuchsia shade and they were surprisingly comfortable. I say surprisingly because I'm a wimp when it comes to high heels. You should totally get them and how fun would it be to have a glitter shoe? :)

  3. Love your suggestions but I must admit I am a huge fan of navy & black too. I would wear black tights & tie in a black blouse or black sweater like the tippi from crew at least that's how i work my office look - thanks Taylor - now I want those shoes too!

    1. OH I often do the Navy Black... like 95% of the time! I didn't mean to make it sound like that was not a great option - I just wanted to go more outside the box! :)

      And they are out of the shoes in my size :( SOB!

  6. I hear you on the need for conservative outfits for the office! I bought a few pairs of patterned stockings but I am a bit nervous to wear them, people in my office tend to stick to plain sheer or opaque tights. I love the different color options, and those shoes!!!
