Questions about how to wear pantyhose, stockings and tights are something I get asked about all the time. I recently received an about this and decided to address it. This reader asked me the following:. I never know when or when not to wear stockings. Did stockings go out of style decades ago? How do you choose the color? Can you please shed light on this confusing topic?
When did stockings go out of style?
There is no definitive answer to when wearing pantyhoses went out of style. However, what I believe is that classic, nude stockings seemed to have lost momentum when the movie Disclosure starring Demi Moore released in Despite the fact that the movie is nearly 20 years old, and few probably even recall this reference, from that moment women abandoned their pantyhose for bare legs at the office. So, yes, wearing pantyhose did go out of style decades ago, but they seem to be on the upswing again with Kate Middleton recently wearing them. For goodness sakes, if your legs are cold put some tights or stockings on.
Besides, with all the options that expand past a classic pair of nude nylons, if trend is important, you can wear a pair of opaque tights. In fact, they even make fleece lined tights now and companies, like Uniqlomake tights that hold in heat and keep you post. I feel about wearing stockings like I do breastfeeding an infant— while there may be a lot of outside pressure to breastfeed a mother has to make her own decision.
The yours goes for wearing stockings. If you are looking for ultra-sheer, Falke makes hard-to-see stockings. So you can cross that color off your list.
Moving into colored tights, right now they are very trendy. To choose color, what I would suggest is that you look at the predominant colors in your wardrobe.
When did stockings go out of style?
For example, my wardrobe is brown and grey based so I have several pairs of brown and grey tights. You can never go wrong with neutral tights. If your legs are heavy or short, stick with darker and richer tights, like eggplant, burgundy, navy and hunter green. This is why sticking with richer, opaque tights shades are the best way to go as these richer colors will work better with a dark pair of shoes. My favorite tights brand is Spanx Tight-End shaping tights in their high-waist style.
I like them for a few reasons. First, these tights are basically indestructible. Secondly, I like the high-waist feature because they create a seamless line over my tummy. When tights are too short an unflattering bulge can get created over the waistline of the tights. With Spanx Tight-End high-waist tights you get the tights and shapewar in one.
Wearing stockings with open toed shoes has to be one of the hottest debated fashion topics on the planet. While I would never in a million year wear a pair of hosiery with open-toe shoes, I know there are many who do.
Not unless you want to look like Minnie Mouse. Striped stockings, crazy patterns, even something called Melting Tights are all fine if you choose wisely. Personally, I think patterns like stripes and really crazy patterns belong on someone younger than older. If you are going to partake leave the rest of your outfit really simple and use patterned tights as your accent punch.
This is why I cautioned against white tights and stockings. Unless you arethey look juvenile and silly. Not for work, unless you work in the oldest profession. Fishnets have become more acceptable at work as long as the net size is small. I feel the same about lace.
A small, subtle pattern can work in an office environment, but anything to exposed or daring is best kept out of the workplace. I hope this guide on how to wear pantyhose, stockings and tights gives you some helpful direction.

Love them or hate them, the once-ubiquitous women’s accessory was a revolutionary invention that helped transform women’s fashion
I love your humor and knowledge of style. Minnie is cute but not on my legs!! A faithful fan, Pat. Hi, Pat! I appreciate your faithfulness and your compliments! Next time you see a woman in black tights and colored shoes all you will think is Minnie Mouse! Black tights with white, brown, nude, grey or blue shoes blend in pretty well. Unless by color, you meant the really colorful ones such as red yellow green lol. Loved all of the photos!! Thx for a laugh Bridgette. My favorite was the witch under the house! That was the first thing I thought of with striped stockings.
Another great article with helpful advice! I find them comfortable and somewhat protective do you know who sat on that seat before you did? Pantyhose enables me to feel dignified and confident in the shorter skirts I prefer.
Thank you! I totally agree. But if you prefer tights, sure wear them, I also like them, they can be sophisticated. ALL womenno matter what age look better in hosiery, its a more finished look. Its also prettier and sexier, then bare skin. But thats secondary.
Black looks ridiculous, nude and you look naked. But why would you want the outline of your white bra to show? The whole point of a nude bra is so it is invisible. This is such a mean spirited article.
Utterly ridiculous. It sure is! Check out this post about men who wear tights and pantyhose. With all of the focus on women being comfortable with themselves and their choices, and not being judged or ridiculed, this article is quite damning of many particular fashion choices. In truth, white tights can look very cute, classy and even sexy!
I love wearing tights of all colours, with various styles of shoe, and never get anything but compliments and very positive attention from men and women alike! When you come for fashion advice you are going to get an opinion. I love wearing for warmth, support, the way they make my legs look the feel is a great fashion. Great article! I never liked wearing pantyhose before and i definitely think thigh highs are better.
If your legs are cold put a pair of stockings on
God there are a lot of really ugly legs about. You […]. We laugh we call it the cavewoman look. Trust me when I say men truly enjoy the look of a woman, with nylons on her legs.
