While Kate Middleton gets plenty of praise for fashion inspiration, she also reintroduced sheer pantyhose this year. (And L'eggs launched its first TV ad in more than a decade.) While Tim Gunn respects her style, he is not a fan of the hosiery. "I think there are few things that look as anachronistic as a sheer stocking," he says. "If you're wearing stockings, it should be known!"
I have to say that I love Tim Gunn, but I completely disagree with him here. I think nylons are a staple of classy women's wear, whether it be professional or formal attire. Also, why would a woman want to wear stockings that are 3 shades darker than the rest of her skin just so that everybody knows that she's wearing them? It looks odd when gals have brown legs and white arms. You want to match your skin tone or go a shade darker. I don't want people going, "OMG! She's definitely wearing nylons!" So weird. I didn't even know hosiery had officially gone out of style. Can someone let me know when bras aren't "trendy" anymore? I'd like to hit the clearance sales!
I think Kate looks lovely here and her legs look nicer than Mrs. Obama's bare legs do in this picture.
I think pantyhose are fine if you follow the rules:
#1. No open-toed shoes.
#2. No runs, always carry a spare.
#3. No hair. If your legs are hairy, please wear proper tights & spare the rest of us from having to view your smashed-up leg hair.
The number of U.S. states in which a person can marry the person they love regardless of gender: 30 and counting!
I'm with Tim Gunn. Tights, patterned tights, black hose etc etc....no nudes. Ever.
I'm also in the do NOT wear a black/dark bra with a white/light top! It should not be *that* visible!
