I prefer opaques, bright ones or patterned ones.

i have a question regarding hosiery. i have an event/gala to go to in late september and i am wearing this Dries dress with brassy gold marni heels. i am not comfortable going to an evening event bare legged but the thought of wearing a nude sheer stocking isnt winning me over so my question is...is an ultra sheer black stocking too dated?

my feeling about sheer hose is that they must be black, or off black or dk brown...

and that they are due for a major comeback right about ...


NOW~!...

I love black opaque tights during winter and fall time, it leaves you the option having to wear skirts and dresses than constantly switching up jeans/pants throughout the week.

luckyme, depending on the weather I think either a darker/opaque black tight would be completely suitable with your dress, or if it's still too hot out to wear a heavier looking tight, sheer black tights would look lovely as well, not at all dated.

Personally I never wear nude sheer tights either. But sheer black, brown or greys are all good in my book though. Just as long as they are in good quality

Well, I generally wear tights to avoid shaving my legs, so I don't usually wear sheer ones. I also hatehatehate runs and I find I get runs more in sheer tights. Plus I hate that gap you get between your crotch and the crotch of the tights when they ride down and I get that more in sheer tights because they're slipperier.

So, in a very long answer, no. I despise them.

I'm not a fan of sheer tights. I rarely wear dresses or skirts anyway, but when I do, I wear opaques for smarter occasions and fishnets, lacy or patterned tights for a more casual or fun look.

A little late I know, but no, they're not too dated. That would be like asking if the little black dress or black heels are too dated.

I'm kind of surprised at some of the responses against sheer hose though.

I have always hated sheer stockings. Too shiny, too thick, too dark, too itchy, too old. However, today I actually found a pair that looked natural on my pale pale legs. They were from Wolford, called Luxe 9 in the shade Cosmetics. It looks like my legs have been gently airbrushed. I would recommend them for anyone with pale legs with a yellow undertone. Best of all, they feel soft, not coarse, like many stockings do...

Sheer stockings are terrible, but I love opaque tights very much.

I hate sheer stockings but I do wear them... otherwise my thighs rub and chafe, so I'd rather wear them and have my legs look orange than be uncomfortable. I like black opaques and colourful and patterned tights, however.

For those with similar orange issues, I found something both pale and cheap enough: the "London" from H&M.
