Stockings Or No Stockings?

Are you trying to figure out if stockings are still in fashion? Well, then you have come to the right place because we have the same question. Stockings were very popular in the early 2000s with every celebrity wearing them but only in movies and music videos. Celebrities were seen wearing stockings on red carpets. But with that socking hasn’t really made a major appearance since then. So it is easy to see why you don’t know if you should wear them or not. Thankfully you have us.

 

So why do women actually wear stockings? You probably don’t know this but stocking stockings were solely invented to keep you warm while wearing a dress or a skirt. Great thing is that the principle hasn’t changed since then. This means that the only reason why you wear stockings is that you would like to wear a pretty dress while it is cold out. Stockings allow you to show off your legs without having to worry about getting chicken skin. Now just because you don’t see stockings in fashion magazines doesn’t mean they aren’t in fashion. All you need to know is how to style them correctly. You should always try to wear a pair of stockings that matches your skin tone or the outfit you plan on wearing.

When it comes to your skin tone, there are a variety of nudes and deeper-toned stockings you can explore. It is important to try and get a pair of stockings nearest to your skin tone if you are trying to give the allusion that you aren’t wearing stockings. If you aren’t looking for a skin-toned pair of stockings, your best bet would be to go with black. Similar to the little black dress, a black pair of stockings tends to be an easy fashion win. Black stockings go with any and every type of outfit you have planned. The only thing you have to keep in mind when wearing stockings is to get a good quality pair because stockings do rip easily.
