Sweater stockings are an important part of winter for me. This year, I have three pairs: a cream pair, a chocolate brown pair, and a forest green pair. I love them all to death and wear them fairly consistently. What’s particularly wonderful about sweater stockings is that they serve many a purpose. They are warm, they look great with cable-knit beanies, and so on. They are also amazingly versatile, but one of my favourite outfits with sweater tights is the one I am explaining today. So, you’ve got your sweater stockings. You’ve got a shirt of your choice (I personally usually go for button-ups, but really, pick your poison because lots of different kinds of tops look awesome with this outfit). I highly recommend boots as footwear, because most of the time they really pull together a look, especially if they are in a neutral hue. There are some great, inexpensive boots at Modcloth, and Wellies are cute English staple. Now, the high-waisted shorts:
High-waisted shorts were very in this summer, and they can be very in this winter, too, with a simple bit of layering! I just cannot tell you how awesome sweater stockings look with high-waisted shorts. They are too cool.
Now, you have your basic outfit: stockings, blouse, shorts. Time to accessorize! Cable-knit sweaters look so fab (especially w/button-up shorts) with this outfit, especially thick ones. You could also try adding pins or brooches to your outfit for pizzazz, and hats can be quite splendid. A headband could also be cool!
