hosiery color

michie1November 12, 2004

It's been several years since I've been out in the work force & had to wear hose on a regular basis. Tomorrow I'm having a family portrait. I'm wearing a blk leather skirt just past the knee, a ivory top with a black open weave poncho & blk knee length boots. There will be a small portion of my leg showing. Should I be wearing blk or nude hose? When I worked it used to be to match your hose with your shoes & nude hose looked cheap, especially in the winter so I used to wear taupe & off blk & in the warmer mnth a blush or ivory hose to match my shoes, but I think those rules might be passe. Please advise.

I would wear off black or opaque black....as that pink knee sticking out between the boots and shirt might be a bit startling.

I agree with Lindac. Hanes has a color called Barely Black that would be perfect.

In this case I'd wear black, too. Generally, I wear and see skin tones in hosiery, and white seems to have fallen by the wayside.

I agree with the above; because of your boots, you would not want to be too cut up.

I also always wore Hanes Barely Black years ago & is what I ended up wearing on Fri for the photos. It looked perfect. Thanks.
