27 Fall Dresses That Look Naked Without Tights

Some people refer to this time of year as sweater weather, but we prefer to think of it as sweater dress weather. Before the tide turns toward snow and freezing temps, now is the prime time to rock fall dresses. You just need one key accessory to make them season-appropriate: a great pair of tights.

And this styling trick doesn’t just apply to sweater dresses. For the perfect fall dress, look for one with long sleeves and a slightly thicker material or opt for a piece that you can layer thin tops and turtlenecks under with ease. If you want a leg-lengthening look, make sure you match your shoes to your hosiery. Or if you want to mimic a street style star, go with completely contrasting footwear for an extra kick. When it comes to top hosiery brands, we’re big fans of Wolford’s long-lasting versions.

Tights literally come in a rainbow of colors, so in addition to putting together a shopping list of scene-stealing fall dresses, we’re also offering up some styling tips to find your perfect match.
