Thought my fall/winter wardrobe shows little evidence, I love color. In spring or summer you’ll rarely find me in muted shades, but by fall I’ve returned to neutrals for a softer, warmer feel and look. I was recently given the opportunity to review No nonsense leggings and tights, and I happily accepted; I often struggle to spice up my wardrobe, especially since I’m so focused on wardrobe staples, so it was nice to be forced into it.
I received a pair of bright, candy apple red corduroy leggings and a pair of black fishnet tights, both of which I gaped at in surprise. What on earth was I supposed to pair these with, I asked myself? It takes a lot for me to diverge from preppy, but I figured out a couple of solutions…
RIGHT: J.Crew Tippi sweater, J.Crew wool miniskirt (old, similar), No nonsense fishnet tights, Ann Taylor perfect leather pumps
I do think the quality is fantastic and the sizing is true-to-size for both the leggings and the black fishnets. I requested a large in the leggings—having found that many leggings tend to be snug—only to realize a medium would have been a much better fit. (The medium/large fishnet tights were perfect.) I was impressed with the quality of both pairs, especially the lightweight warmth of the corduroy leggings and the reinforced band and stitching on the fishnets. Plus, you can always find No nonsense at retailers like CVS, Duane Reade, and grocery stores for when you’re in a pinch.
