I have a semi-formal event coming up. I have a basic knee length black dress I plan to wear with some cute strappy shoes. Am I supposed to wear nude hose? or black hose? Is it okay to wear panty hose with open-toed shoes? I hardly ever dress up anymore and I no longer know the rules!

RE: Hosiery

I would opt for the nude panty hose without the reinforced toes. Unless your legs look great and are somewhat tanned, it always seems better to cover them up a little bit. My daughters can get away with the bare look, but not me!!!

By the way, black is THE color this season, so you will look wonderful. Red is always a good accent color if you have any jewelry or scarves in that color to go with it.

Have a great time!!!

RE: Hosiery

Never wear panty hose with open toed shoes - except the *toeless* type.

It may be a little difficult to find but you can get nude panythose without a closed toe. Some styles are completely open at the toe and some brands are a 'thong' type (thong like in thong sandles, not the panty part).

Toeless pantyhose will cover any leg blemishes and avoid the 'webbed' look at the toes.

It's nice to use polish on your toes for a fancy night out too. You can get away with a brighter color on you toes than on your fingers - they don't have to be the same color. A deep peach on the fingernails and a soft coral on the toenails can be a nice look.
