How to Rock the Formal Wear With Hosiery

Attending a wedding but don’t feel like buying a new cocktail dress? You’re not alone in this issue! We understand the importance of always looking your best but also balancing your expenses when it comes to having a perfect wedding attire.

Instead of buying a new dress to wear, why not focus on wearing an old dress differently? One way to spice up your formal wear is to add hosiery to the overall look. Check out these three tips which can help tide you and your old trusty black cocktail dress over for your next formal event.

Cocktails and Prints

A staple approach to
wearing hosiery with cocktail dresses is to have either black tights or textured tights. This gives that little black dress an
extra oomph for style.

For the more
practical ones, pairing black tights with a dress also acts as a safety
blanket. No need to worry about that updraft, if you have a nice pantyhose.

When wearing a
cocktail dress, try to experiment with lacy tights or a textured hosiery. With
the right design, you can teeter the border between edgy and sexy—and this is a
nice combo you may want to aim for.

Fashion Fit For a

Ever looked at
Princess Kate Middleton and think that she looks unbelievably classy in whatever she wears? A great fashion
sense may be a big part of it, but one reason that contributes to it is her
preference for nude pantyhose. 

While it takes some
guts and style to pull off royalty fashion, it is possible, as long as you
understand when to use it and how to pair it well with your outfit. Nude
pantyhose is a nice touch that could keep your legs warm without interfering
with your fashion sensibilities. Just remember to try and keep it as close to
your skin tone, especially for a more formal ensemble.

Tights and Pantyhose
with Open-Toed Shoes?

In fashion, hosiery
is meant to give outfits a fun twist, especially the lacy and textured styles.
However, you may have to deal with the age-old fashion debate: do I wear tights
or pantyhose with open-toed shoes or not?

The verdict lies more
with your fashion taste and the occasion. There are some cases when this
combination would be off, particularly when using nude color options. Unless
you are using pantyhose for practical purposes, including protection from cold
temperature or a good cover for varicose veins, it may be a good idea to skip
the nude hosiery if you’re rocking an open-toed kicker.

However, colored
pantyhose is a different matter. If your style is edgy—think of an all-red
ensemble paired with a black pantyhose—then this can definitely work.
