    SPANX Tights - Uptown Tight-End-Tights Blackout at Bloomingdales

Let’s help this reader, and you, figure out what type of pantyhose to wear with what.   I have a draw full of black pantyhose- sheer, opaque, very opaque, and a few textured (hate them as I think they make my legs look fat). The thing, is that I never know what kind of pantyhose to wear with what…

I’m recuperating with a fractured ankle so Naveed is doing this week’s Stylist Advice question… -S.H Dear Sharon:It’s been awhile since I’ve had to wear a dress to an evening event during winter in the Northwest.

    Can I wear stockings in beginning of September or is there a time of year when I can wear nude stockings? My legs are horrific… I am 58 and have a lot of marks and spider veins.

  • Celebrity Style Bust- Rihanna, the girl of too many things but one good Givenchy Antigona bag

    Celebrity Sightings In Paris - October 22, 2011

    I’ll Have What She’s Having (from the waist up): Rihanna manages to ruin a few very good pieces with some dang tacky tights and a girdle for a dress. There, I said it! Rihanna was sporting some super chic fashion elements on her 3AM return to her hotel after her concert in Paris. There’s the well-proportioned floppy fedora (unlike that over-sized Kim Kardashian monstrosity), the covetable cropped jacket, and the to-die-for Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci “Antigona” bag… all in classic…

    Adjust your fashion sense for your age… Senior style for forgoing pantyhose

    Adjust your fashion sense for your age… Senior style for forgoing pantyhose Here’s a spin on that proverbial chestnut: hose worn with open shoes. I’m old, and my legs show it.

So, I know pantyhose worn with open shoes is a no-no, but I’ve seen old girls like me without hose, and it ain’t pretty! Is there any advice…
