I love stockings and tights because they are what I call a "multi-tasker". They keep me warm in the cold and can be doubled up as an accessory to complete an outfit. In my wardrobe, I have a special section just to "house" all the stockings that I own. I even have them divided based on their denier variations. Yes, a little stocking nerdy I must admit =P
Peplum silhouette is a hot current trend. Tops, skirts, dresses and jackets have all undergone a peplum makeover recently. In case you are not familiar, peplum refers to a piece with a ruffle around the waist. It adds volume while creating a flattering hourglass shape. I thought a cute peplum red skirt would go like butter on bread with these playful stockings. If you are also hunting down something peplum, make sure you try it on! Due to their structure, you just never know how they are going to look until they are on you. Since peplum can be voluminous, try and pair it with more sleek and streamlined pieces such as skinny jeans.
