Yesterday, I shared what is quite possibly my favorite DIY project ever. Not because it was elaborate or difficult to accomplish, but precisely because it wasn’t. These DIY polka dot tights are so simple to do, but the finished look is amazing! Now, I just need to grab some tights in other colors so I can make more, perhaps even in other patterns. I loved the tights so much that I immediately put together an outfit inspired by the pattern.

This top is the Skyline Selfie top, which is one of the pieces I won from the Nicolette Mason collection for ModCloth a few weeks back. If I’m completely honest, it’s not the type of shirt I’d usually pick up when shopping on my own. Mostly because big boobs mean that button-down shirts rarely lay flat in the front, and I never really know how to style them. But it was honestly the perfect pairing for these tights, and now, I’m looking for other ways to wear it. So thanks, Nicolette, for pushing me outside my comfort zone.

Of course, I had to pair the top and tights with a skirt, because the whole point of tights in the winter is to be able to rock them without freezing. This plus-size faux leather skater skirt from Forever 21 is an oldie, but goodie, and it’s the type of piece that can be remixed dozens of ways. Check out how it wore it back in the summer.

Also worth mentioning? This topknot. I never thought I could get my thick, curly natural hair into a convincing topknot, but I did, almost by accident. I twisted the ends of my puff, planning to have a defined twist-out puff. But the twists didn’t set right and I just wrapped them into a bun instead. I’m digging, and this hairstyle is about to become a permanent part of my repertoire, because yes. Plus a red lip. Because a topknot requires a red lip.

So what about you? Are you inspired to try your hand making polka dot tights, now that you’ve seen how you could wear them?
