Hosiery choice is personal
Question: Please clarify the rules of hosiery these days. I am aware that stockings are worn less frequently. However, does a woman in her 60s wear stockings for after-five dressing? If so, what is the appropriate color to wear with a champagne or mocha-colored sheath dress -- nude-toned or lighter? Answer: There really are no hosiery rules anymore. Whether or not you wear stockings is simply a matter of personal preference. Me? I think sheer stockings the same shade as your legs add a touch of elegance to after-five dress.
Appliqued Hosiery Adds Romantic Touch
When you're a bride planning a stroll down the aisle, you want everything perfect. Whether you prefer a long, traditional gown, a shorter, modern style or something in between, you want to look and feel your most romantic.Feminine, romantic touches don't have to be extravagant to be effective; sometimes it's the little things that make the difference. Bridal hosiery with delicate appliques of flowers, wedding bells, pearls or rhinestones can enhance a wedding outfit and make the bride feel special.
Trends Put Dull Hosiery On The Run
One fashion decision a woman hasn't had to make in the last few years is what to wear on her legs during the fall and winter months. Black opaque tights have been the right choice with just about any skirt length. But those carefree days may be over.There are signs of anarchy in the hosiery area, with designers suggesting sheer nude or sheer black pantyhose, opaque white tights, over-the-knee stockings and even knee-highs with a skirt and ankle socks with high-heel shoes.Women with an interest in fashion have already started experimenting, going barelegged in the summer, wearing thigh-high stockings with mini dresses or white tights with dark skirts.
Denier And Hose: It's A Sheer Thing
Question: I was ordering pantyhose off the Internet recently and noticed the term "denier" cropping up in some of the product descriptions. What is this denier creature? Also, is support hose just thicker than regular hose? Answer: "Denier" is a term that has long been used in Europe but is only now showing up on hosiery packaging in the United States. Technically speaking, denier is a unit of weight used to measure the fineness of threads. The lower the denier, the finer the thread. More simply stated: Denier indicates the sheerness of hosiery.
