Is it OK to wear Pantyhose?? - The Wardrobe Consultant
We get this question a lot. Many women want to know if it's on-trend to wear pantyhose. Maybe they saw a celebrity wear them or maybe they are going to a special event and want to make sure people won't think they're old-fashioned. Right now we live in a great time for clothing. Love overall shorts but left your teens behind decades ago? Wear them! Love sandals with sheer hosiery?
And different than the woman standing next to her? I read Kate favors the Wolford brand and I the Donna Karan — those and other favorite sheer nude hose are linked below…just double click the photo. Opaque tights are best when the thermometer dips below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Pantyhose — or stockings or nylons or tights, which are not exactly the same things but are often used interchangeably — are one of those items of dress that seems innocuous and unimportant, but is actually a giant generational, occupational and cultural lightning rod. For women of a certain age, they are simply a part of girding yourself for the world; for others, they are a symbol of old-fashioned female repression and outmoded gender rules. Indeed, if you ever want to start a lively discussion during a lull in a dinner party, bring up the question of pantyhose. Even when they are invisible or skin-tone, no one is neutral on the subject. Simply consider, if you will, the case of Megan Markle.
