The great hosiery debate
My question is simple: is this appropriate?

I don't think it looks too hot.

i think it can work with the sheerest of the sheer, or very deliberate fishnets.

I wouldn't recommend it... but do what you feel you're comfortable with

Not appropriate. It's not as bad as hose with open toe sandals (or worse yet, hose over anklets!) but I still don't do it. The reason is that people will be able to see the wrinkles in the hose where the slingback hits, and that is what makes it tacky.

Its a fashion don't in my books.

This makes it hard for work when stockings are mandatory.


Maybe with a very very very sheer grey with black shoes but even then its a bit of a don't

Mandatory stockings is a horrible dress code... and I can see how that would make dressing for work difficult.

with slingbacks, no.
but when done right, hose/fishnet can look great with sandals

would anyone wear black tights with mules during winter?

I don't believe there is such as thing as a "Fashion No"

Surely it depends on your hose, your style of slingback, what the rest of your outfit is, what you look like, how well you can carry things off....etc etc etc etc

Personally, I hate hose and hate slingbacks singularly, so wouldn't dream of pairing them up, but if it goes with your look that day, why not?!
