But you already know this. This is the most common way of taking a floaty summer do, and making it cold weather appropriate. If you've got a flowery or colorful dress, even better. You can use the tights to play up or highlight the dress's accents and subtle tones. Also play with texture. Delicate, feminine prints look positively rich with thicker tights. Add your cutest pair of boots and voilá! Your favorite vintage spring dress is now a winter must-have.
