Fall Style Hack: Tights under jeans

I can no longer deny that fall has arrived. The trees are changing colors. The leaves are falling, littering the ground. And, temps are now dipping into the 40’s. I don’t mind so much because fall in the Midwest is beautiful, but I dread the thought of winter. I was not made for cold weather.

The last few days have been windy with a decided chill in the air, which is a great excuse for unpacking my sweaters and indulging in a cute, fall style hack… wearing tights under jeans.

Don't let fall's chilly days keep you from wearing your distressed jeans. Wearing cute tights under jeans will keep you warm and stylish.

Lipton Publicity sent me a selection of Berkshire Trend tights to review, and I couldn’t wait to try the Berkshire Women’s Trend Sheer Diamond Control Top Pantyhose under my distressed jeans.

Wearing tights under jeans is a great way to stay warm on chilly days. Plus, I like how they add a touch of the unexpected to a casual, everyday  look.

My new, cardinal red Tieks are getting a lot of wear. I’ve only had them for a few weeks, but so far, I’m very happy with them. At some point, I will write a Tieks review, but I want to wait a bit so that I know how they wear over time. This summer, I lost a pair of ballet flats to an unexpected rain storm, so I’m interested in seeing how Tieks hold up.

Have you seen Target’s new line, A New Day? There are so many cute pieces. I tried this sweater on at a wardrobe fitting, and while I didn’t get to wear it for the commercial, I had to run to Target to buy it for myself. I’m not usually a fan of yellow, but this sweater reminded me of the leaves changing colors and seemed just right for fall. Plus, it’s under $25, so it’s hard to beat the price.

  1. Love your mustard yellow cardigan! 🙂 I have a similar one and I’m not too upset our spring weather hasnt’ properly arrived yet as it gives me more opportunities to wear it, haha!

    I like the tights under the distressed jeans too – nice touch and a good way to add an extra layer for warmth 🙂

    Hope you have had a wonderful weekend 🙂

  2. Love this outfit, and agree with Mica…that cardi rocks! I love the idea of tights over jeans as well. I do that sometimes when I wear my super tattered jeans:)

  3. I never thought of wearing tights under jeans – so cute! My favorite fall hack is throwing a jean jacket over my summer dresses so I can still wear them a little longer.

  4. I don’t have any jeans distressed enough for tights underneath, but I love this outfit! The red shoes look SO good with the yellow cardigan. Those tights are perfect, too. A much better option that socks or being barefoot 🙂
    A New Day has that bright yellow skirt at Target that I want to try on SO BADLY. Lol

  5. Super cute outfit! I also have a pair of tieks but don’t find them to be super comfy. Kinda disappointing since I had high expectations.

  6. Yep, I’ve seen this trend and I want it! I want it bad. The only issue is I can’t seem to find a pair of distressed jeans that I like. I love how you pair this outfit with your golden cardigan.

  7. Super Cute! I wish it was cooling down here. Our cold front lasted a week and brought us a wonderful week of highs of mid 80s. But its back to the 90s again. UGH!

  8. I’ve been considering getting a pair of Tieks because I see people talk about them all the time, so you have one audience member already excited to read that review.

    The tights here, with the pattern especially, is fun and unexpected.

  9. I adore pretty patterned tights under distressed denim. You are rocking this style hack! Can’t believe it’s already 40 degrees where you live. Fall is coming here, too, but for now it’s still in the 70s and 80s.
