How To Transition For Fall While Plus-Size: Opaque Tights

I feel like I’m about to speak about something that everyone knows about however, for some reason I feel the need to say it again.  With that being said Opaque Tights are a fall staple!  Whether the tights are super opaque, control-top, or colorful get yourself some opaque tights.  As a matter, a fact get a few pair of opaque tights.

For fall leading to winter opaque tight not only add style to an outfit, but they also add warmth on a colder day. Tip:  I tend to size up in my tights.  When putting the tights on sizing up for one are easy to get on and off.  Also, sizing up keeps the tight’s color from looking thin again the skin.



How To Transition For Fall While Plus-Size: Fall Colors

When thinking about how to transition for fall while plus-size color is key.  Pulling fall color is always a great option when taking summer looks forward to fall.  For example, with the abstract print midi dress, I’m wearing I could have gone with many of the colors in the print.  Tan, taupe, or brown.  I decided on black for a classic and rich look.  I mean you never lose betting on black.

As a fan of matchy-matchy or monochromatic looks fall is time to try this style out.  Layer away my friends.  Tip:  If the dress has print then go with the darkest color.  If you’re on a budget pair the look with the color you have the most of.  If your opaque tights are dark purple and you have a bag that matches then go with that if it makes sense with your look.  Hey, it’s just clothes right!


Bonus tip:  The use of accessories is a great way to transition tor fall.  Wide brim fedora hat and boots are fall staples.  I’m also a fan of pointed toes flats for fall.  And that’s how to wear a summer dress in the fall.
