Tips for Wearing Stockings

Many women in today’s fashion world completely avoid wearing stockings which I think is actually okay for certain occasions. However there are still those events and times when wearing nylons is definitely appropriate, even expected, and you need to know how to choose the right ones. Wearing the wrong kind of nylons could result in fashion disaster and having the perfect ones could swing the pendulum to the other direction of a fashion bulls eye.

One of the things to always remember is that your stockings should match your shoe and that your shoe should never be lighter than your stocking. Probably nine times out of ten you can get away with a nude sheer stocking; that particular shade goes with just about anything and can give your legs a nice smooth look. Depending on the occasion, you could want other kinds of nylons. There are stockings that are more shimmery for parties or night time events, black ones for concerts or particularly fancy affairs, and there’s even super sheer for a look that really just evens out your legs without looking like you have stockings on at all.

One of the issues with women and fashion today is persuading women to actually wear nylons. Many had unfortunate experiences with stockings in their youth and as a result refuse to ever wear them. The key however is in finding a good quality pair of nylons. Not all nylons have to be itchy, riding up, or falling down; I’ve had some amazing pair where I hardly know they’re there when I’m wearing them. Remember though, that in finding a good pair of nylons, it probably won’t be totally inexpensive; sometimes investing in a great pair of nylons is a most excellent investment for your wardrobe.

One of the important things to remember though with nylons is that you need to shave your legs before wearing them, otherwise you’ll have unattractive hair poking out of your stockings! Nylons don’t have to be uncomfortable and unbearable—wear them to highlight your legs and give you a extra boost of confidence!

Tips for Wearing Stockings

Figuring out the look that you’re going to want to create will help you to choose the right stockings. Here are some additional tips for wearing them with style:

• Think carefully about your shoes. High heels and boots are great choices with stockings. Open-toed shoes are often a mistake.

• Note that sheer stockings are going to make legs look thinner whereas thicker, patterned stockings might create a look that’s too bulky for you.

• Pay attention to where your skirt or dress ends. If it hangs too low then stockings might throw off your proportions and make you look a little strange.

• Play around with your style. You’ll figure out what looks right.
