A new season means I start looking through magazines and stores, searching for ways to update my wardrobe on a budget. So I was really looking forward to trying out these No nonsense tights and leggings.
First I tried on the No nonsense lace tights. Yes, I was scared at first! I haven't worn lace tights since Madonna's first album. But these lace tights were lovely. They had a pretty pattern, and I loved the soft pink tone. It surprisingly went with my favorite Fall skirt with lace edging and embroidery, and it was neutral enough to go with either a similarly pale sweater, or a more richly colored one. To contrast with the femininity of the tights, I paired them with some slighty rugged wedge ankle boots, and finished my look with the cowl my mom knit for me.

One look at the corduroy leggings from No nonsense and I knew they'd be comfortable and warm. It was easy to put together an every day look with my favorite cover-up-my-bum sweater. When it gets colder, I can definitely wear these leggings with boots, but for now, I'm pairing them with some patterned flats, plus my mom's pom-pom scarf.

Many thanks to my photography assistant, who showed me how to work it.
I was not surprised that the tights and leggings I tried were of such good quality. I've been wearing No nonsense since age 6! No, I wasn't on the 70s version of Toddlers and Tiaras, but I was a figure skater. Back then, we wore panty hose over our thick tights during performances, and yes, I know we wore No nonsense. And just like back then, No nonsense is affordable and available at your local grocery, mass retailer, or drug store. So it's easy to change up your look...grab some milk, grab some leggings.
But these days, No nonsense is more than the nude, black and white hose of yesteryear. No nonsense is now modern and stylish, yet accessible, and has recently partnered with Jill Martin, author of the NY Times Best Seller "I Have Nothing To Wear!" and Correspondent for Access Hollywood. In this video, she's talking about how to add a punch of color to your basic fall wardrobe, by simply picking up a pair of colorful No nonsense tights.
