Maybe it's because I live in L.A., but I'm always a tad confused on how to style tights. They're a winter essential that can be slightly tricky to pull off considering they're particularly difficult to style with certain shoes or hemline lengths. But leave it to Emma Roberts to come up with the chicest, can't-go-wrong way to wear tights—and on a budget, no less.
In a new Instagram post promoting her Belletrist book club, Roberts wore arguably the cutest dress that Nordstrom has in stock right now: the Topshop Belted Pinafore Dress ($55). She smartly made it winter-appropriate with a mock-neck Splendid sweater; opaque tights; and By Far Becca Leather Ankle Boots ($540). Take note: A sleeveless, A-line minidress is the perfect thing to wear with tights and boots. Even better if the dress is under $60 like Roberts's.
