Styling skeleton tights may seem like something for only emo, gothic, or Halloween obsessed people, but that is simply closed-minded! Skeleton tights can easily be made into something actually quite adorable and wearable! And to prove it, I have this outfit I wore to an apple orchard.
I gave up on trying to dress completely girly or completely emo a long time ago, and have come to terms with my sweet spot being somewhere in between. Thus the “school-girl who could also maybe be a demon?” look was born.
Or if you’re a Taylor Swift fan, I like to say my style is like her lyrics from Blank Space: “Darling I’m a nightmare, dressed like a daydream.” Except, the nightmare comes out a little more in October.
What I’m trying to say is, I actually don’t dress super “goth” or “Halloween.” Not even during spooky season. And I never dress super girly. So if you’re the same, or fall more on the feminine side or the dark demon side of the spectrum, incorporating skeleton tights into your outfit is really quite easy.

If you look closely you can see that my nails are glittery red blood on a black background. My friend that I went to visit sells Color Street nail polish and did my nails with this style the night before we went apple picking. Isn’t it so me!?
Adding the bandana into my hair really balanced out the girly side of this outfit. If you wanted to get even girlier, you could have done a bright lipstick or just a colored cardigan and bandana.
On the other hand, to spook things up more, I would have done darker makeup and used my black bandana. Maybe wore a long sleeve mesh shirt instead of the cardigan. Or even a black cardigan.
Are you seeing my point about how styling skeleton tights is simple now?
We picked apples at Lynd’s Fruit Farm just outside of Columbus. They actually gave us the bag I’m holding to pick apples and to donate to the food bank. How cool is that!? I love it when I can help to give back to others.
Now to the details! First off, I wanna talk about how much I’m loving these black booties! These are my first pair of everyday black booties. Last year I bought four-inch black booties, but I just wear those when I go out sometimes. Definitely not office appropriate.
Everyone is always talking about how you need a good pair of black booties. But I never believed the hype until I got these in the mail. I legit want to wear them every day and have to force myself to sometimes wear different shoes. Sorry not sorry if you see them all over my Instagram from now until it’s too cold to wear them.
The only bad thing about these booties is that they run a little small. I ordered my normal size and they were a bit tight. But after one day of wear, they fit so much better and don’t bother me at all.
Now, these skeleton tights? I bought them on a whim while browsing on PrettyLittleThing, and I’m not mad. They were super cheap because I got them 50% so I’m not mad that I already ripped them. Look closely and you’ll find it in a photo above! Plus, I think ripping them adds to the spooky character of the outfit.
