Rebecca Minkoff is InStyle’s designer expert helping us answer reader questions! Here’s what she had to say this month:

QUESTION: Can I wear tights with my black peep-toe booties? I don’t want to freeze! —Carolyn M., Arlington, VA

ANSWER: “Sorry—no. A bit of covered-up toe sticking out of your shoe looks cheap. A better option? Open-toe stockings, which will still keep your legs warm. You can find some at American Apparel and Capezio. Go for black instead of a bold color, as you’re already pushing the envelope enough by exposing your toes.”
