No nonsense

While apple-picking and pumpkin spice lattes are nice, what really gets me excited about fall is the chance to break out all of my fabulous tights, chunky socks, and sleek leggings! When the lovely folks at No nonsense challenged me to a Style Remix featuring some of their new products, I gladly accepted. This fall, they’ve designed a curated collection featuring new fabrications and patterns, including Denim and Ponte Knit Leggings, Sweater Tights and Fashion Tights in bold prints. No nonsense products are easy to find at Nononsense.com as well as major food and drug stores.

Below are a few of my favorites and how I plan to wear them this fall.

First up is the Chunky Cable Knit Boot Sock

I pulled all of my boots out of storage this past weekend, and I love how these chunky grey knee socks look paired with both of my cognac-colored boots. I like them peeking out just over the tops of my boots for casual Fridays at the office and pulled up over-the-knee for a fun and flirty weekend look. I give these two thumbs up for their versatility and the fact that they stay up without suffocating my legs!

And next we have the Plaid Tights

I used to be really into novelty tights at the start of my blog back in 2010 (as evidenced here), but I’ve gotten away from that over the past couple of years in favor of more subdued colors and prints.  With that being said, I’m always game to be a little adventurous.  While I can’t say that I’ll be rocking my jester tights again any time soon, I like how these plaid tights are playful without being too over-the-top.  For me, the key to making these work will be pairing them with a more subdued color palette and simple silhouettes to maintain a polished and sophisticated look. I also appreciate that these tights didn’t get all wonky and twisted as some patterned tights tend to do on us curvy gals!

On to the Super Opaque Tights

Now we’re really in my element! I probably have enough black opaque tights to clothe an entire girls’ private school for a whole semester (I’m only slightly exaggerating), so it’s nice to switch things up a bit with charcoal grey tights. The color is versatile enough to wear with pretty much everything, and the tights themselves seem very durable yet soft to the touch.  I also have long legs, so I was pretty ecstatic that these fit true-to-size and came up high enough on my waist to be comfortable and stay in place.

And finally we have… Cotton Skeggings?!

Yes folks – it’s a skirt AND a legging! Not gonna lie, I gave these the side-eye immediately upon pulling them out of the package. But I actually turned out to be pleasantly surprised. I’ll most likely use these for working out, especially when I want a little more coverage in the gym. They also work really well when you need to add extra length to a top that’s a wee bit too short to wear on its own with leggings.
