Tights and sandals are awesome.

Now that we're into October and the amazing weather of last weekend has passed, there's a definite sense of autumn about the place. I know this duo won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I really, really like the look of tights worn with sandals as the leaves begin to fall. Pairing the two means you can continue to wear your lovely summer shoes but no longer have to worry about having your toenails painted or your legs shaved, and you're toasty warm.

What's not to love?

Sheer tights with sandals. That's what.

Whether you prefer them ribbed or smooth - ooh matron! - stick with opaque tights and a substantial shoe to really nail this look. If money's no object, look to Falke and Wolford (the latter have outlets in Kildare Village in Ireland and Bicester Village outside London) or check out Topshop and Oasis for more budget-friendly offerings that don't pill and do keep their shape, even when regularly subjected to the ravages of a washing machine.

    I love this look! Especially black tights and leopard heels! x

    Zoey - yay, another fan! And you've reminded me that I don't really have a proper pair of leopard print heels, just flats and kitten heels.

    This is a terrible oversight and I'll have to do something about it STAT ;)
