Absolutely No Nonsense

December 12, 2012·

I’m so excited to FINALLY share this post! It’s felt like FOREVER since I got these tights and leggings in the mail to style. However, I’m excited to share not ONE, but TWO looks with you today. And yes, the second look I have long hair. It’s not magic.


So, I’ve said before that my personal style is a bit chameleon-esque – in that, one day I’ll wear something totally preppy, the next day I’ll wear something totally country, and the next day I’ll wear something totally biker chick. I like variety in outfits. Maybe that matches my personality. I’m a little all over the place. Just kidding.

Anyway, No Nonsense sent me a pair of colored patterned tights and a pair of colored leggings to try and style.

So, the first outfit I put together was with a pair of deep purple checked tights. I. LOVEEEE. THESE. TIGHTS. Seriously! I have wanted SO badly to try the colored tights trend and this was my first foray into that.

The fit is super comfortable and the color is just right – they add such a pop of fun to the outfit!

Seriously, how fun are these tights?! I can think of like 20 different ways to style them and I can’t wait to wear these all winter.

Now, the second pair, a pair of red corduroy leggings, were awesome when I saw them and then CRAZY tough to style when I actually put them on.

I love how soft they are and the corduroy texture really makes them interesting and different from other standard red, cotton leggings – but the fit was a little off for me at first – right length, crazy huge in the waist. I washed them a few times and that did help.

The challenge with these for me, as soft and comfy as they are, is to style them and make them look fashionable without looking like pajamas or Santa pants. I was really very nervous about them looking like Santa pants.

So, after a few trials and errors, this was a look I came up with and I ended up really liking it.

This would actually be a GREAT casual Christmas party or holiday party outfit. Just in my humble opinion. The causal corduroy tights with the sweater make it comfy, but the leopard flats, gold belt, and plenty of jewelry add that touch of glam. 🙂 I’m still toying around with some other ways to style these leggings, and I’ll definitely share the outfits with you as I come up with them!
