If flesh-colored panty hose is now out of style, what color hose does one wear with a light colored or denim skirt? When it's too cool for bare legs and too warm for boots?
Who says flesh tone pantyhose are out? They are still in, wear them all you want.
I would wear opaque tights. Nude hose are very much out.
I'd go with the opaque tights, too....no sheer stockings.
Sheer flesh colored hosiery has always been "out" when paired with denim. Denim is very casual. Its either tights, bare legs, footless leggings, or cute socks.
If you are more comfy wearing hose, no matter the reason, then do so. I don't bow to the fashion ins and outs. I know a fabulous business gal who is truly a wonderful dresser but she always wears hose due to some scarring she has.
