A Little Dijon



Tunic dress: Joe Fresh, tights: Topshop, motorcycle jacket: Danier, platforms: Seychelles (thrifted), necklace: ? (old), sunglasses: Oliver Peoples.


Here is my first venture into mustard tights territory. I have had these tights in my closet for quite some time now but wasn't quite sure what to wear them with. I knew that black was a definite no unless I wanted to dress as a bumblebee for Hallowe'en, so I finally settled on pairing them with this blue and white patterned tunic dress. It worked out perfectly because it gave me the opportunity to transition this thin, summer dress into a new outfit for fall by pairing it with opaque tights and a leather jacket. I think mustard tights would look great with a hunter green or wine coloured dress, which might be my excuse to shop online this weekend!

  15. I love these tights...I've been toying with the idea of mustard ones, but was afraid they'd make my legs look funny (because they are close the skin color...but totally not at the same time)...they look great with this outfit tho..and I agree they will definatly look great with wine or green
