    Default I'm confused about stockings?

    Like we shouldn't wear them anymore because they're out? I don't know what's the deal with stockings these days?

    But my legs are not great, and it's always cold in Seattle. A skirt without stockings and the wind blowing up my bare tush? Brrrr.

    I don't like the dark tights very well, but I do like stockings with skirts and dresses. Do they make you look old?

    We went to the symphony last week and I wanted to wear a fancy skirt, but the only shoes I had to go with it were peeptoe, and I know you can't wear stockings with peeptoes, and my knees don't look so good bare nekkid, and it wasn't warm enough to go out barelegged.....so I wore trousers instead of my pretty skirt.

    Stockings in, out, maybe, yes, no?

    Unless you're wearing a hooker mini skirt who the hell is going to know what your hosiery of choice is apart from you? Tights/hose are daggy but warmer and more comfortable. Guys love stockings.

    I see a lot of criticism here on the celeb pics "Is she wearing stockings?". So I'm thinking it's a fashion offense?

    I don't mind stockings as long as they are not worn with shorts or open toe shoes. Nothing in white or high sheen or fishnet.

    ^^^ Yeah, it definitely seems that way. BUT there are very discreet stockings that you could easily get away with (and you totally have a great reason, to keep WARM). Most of the celebs I've seen mocked for wearing stockings are the ones that are super shiny. If you get a matte sheer that is very close to your skintone, I think you could easily get away with it. I know they also make ones for wearing with peep toes, they just end before the toe cleavage starts. Colored tights seem to be in fashion, but I just don't see that as a warmer spring/summer option. I personally don't wear them because of an injury I have on my abdomen that left a huge keloid behind ... the type of fabric used and the stretchy tightness of stockings just really irritates it. My mother AND mother-in-law grew up in the generation where apparently you're supposed to wear TAN stockings (even if you're fairer than fair), and wearing them with open toed SANDALS is a bonus!! I just cringe every time I see them dressed up.

    I loathe pantyhose, but I like tights. I think that when you don't live in a place with weather like southern California, practicality has to win out sometimes and I still couldn't see myself wearing nothing on my legs in a business situation where I'm wearing a skirt suit or a dress, even if it was a bazillion degrees out.

    Pantyhose don't always photograph well, and that's why a lot of celebs get ragged on for hose, imo. I think pantyhose has probably come a lot way from L'Eggs in Suntan, though. I personally prefer tights, but if you don't like them, wear what you're comfortable in and what will make you feel best. No sense in not wearing a skirt you love because of arbitrary fashion rules.

    I do not miss the days of wrestling into my control top. But because of that, I never wear skirts anymore (has nothing to do with warmth, but chub rub and a winter aversion to shaving). In these days, I do find it odd when I see a woman in stockings, I tend to think either skater or deep vein thrombosis. With that said, it's mind eraser monday and my comments and opinions should summarily be discarded in all but Mel/shed contexts.

    I just don't want to be one of those people who takes a last look in the mirror on the way out the door, and says yep that's perfect--and then get out in public where people snicker in horror thinking my god look at that old bozo she's wearing pantyhose for chrssake. What a rube.

    Can we clarify the terminology here? To me, stockings are held up with a suspender belt or have elasticated tops. Tights (hose) have "panties" sometimes with a gusset. I love that word. I don't give a crap what you wear and neither should you.

    I take tights to be more opaque and pantyhose to be more sheer, to clarify further.

    It's all about the denier IMO.
