There are so many different types of pantyhose- sheer, demi sheer, nude, opaque, tights, lace, and the list goes on and on. 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 […]
Hi y’all. 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. I’m so torn on the proper thing to do when it comes to nylons. It’s a business banquet with Sr. executives from my husband’s company – I really want to be polished as I’m representing him in front of his people. What would you recommend? I’m thinking […]
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. I had a housecleaning business for 18 years, so my knees are discolored. What is the best shade of hosiery to wear? Is it nude or should the hose color to match dress— with closed shoes, of course?

Wear It Wednesday… it’s a dare to pull off socks and shoes. Socks and shoes, no not the way actors had to wear black socks in sexy movie scenes back in the day, but black socks of the off the runway kind.

Outfits pop with neutral […]
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 […]
I’ll Have What She’s Having: A Carven indigo ruched stretch-wool dress played down to look perfect for day. A navy dress– particularly in the fall or winter– can get a bit tricky when it comes to deciding what color hose to wear with it. Summer months are a no-brainer with bare tan legs and tobacco, nude, or bold colored shoes. But, what to do when it gets cool out? Navy hose and a navy dress can get a bit old […]

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. My old gams look much better in hose, obviously. Hose does for my legs what Ultima II does for my face! 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 […]
