20-40-60 Etiquette: Socks, Leggings, Tights or Pantyhose?
YOU ASK! WE ANSWER! YOU DECIDE!
QUESTION: Are women tired of wearing hose? Most women I know are bare legged, except in the wintertime, when they must wear socks or tights to keep warm. Is there a real trend to shoes, no socks? How about black pantyhose? In or out? What is proper etiquette?
CALLIE’S ANSWER: Proper etiquette of pantyhose? I don’t think I have heard that term unless from an older woman. No offense.
For what is in style, tights and leggings are a must during the wintertime. They can be dressed up (tights) or down (leggings).
Socks, yes women do still wear them, but depending on what shoe.
A big trend right now is socks and heels. For this trend your socks cannot be too bulky, and your shoes cannot be too fancy. Always keep your outfit fun and casual! A high sock, no, unless you are young and can pull it off with the right outfit; remember you are not Brittney Spears. Dress for your age and body type.
LILLIE-BETH’S ANSWER: I haven’t worn hose in a long time, but thinking through this answer made me think about going back to them, at least to try them out again. I skipped this fashion “accessory” when I left work years ago to stay home with children and now that I’ve returned, have yet to add it to my getting-ready routine.
It’s very freeing not to have hose constricting your legs. But now that I’m back in the workforce, I don’t have any reason not to try again, especially since there are so many fun patterns and colors. Tights keep your legs warm, but I think hose can work with the right outfit and shoes (definitely not sandals).
HELEN’S ANSWER: Women are still wearing hose for a put-together look and for covering legs with bad veins and blemishes. Textured leg wear and textured tights and sheer black hose never went out of style, not even in the bare legs era. But, the young girls look great with their bare legs. I am jealous.
