As a rule, I don't do nude hosiery. Honestly, it just doesn't seem to come in a shade that works for people of my color (read: very, very fair), and I am not a fan of orange gams on a fair person. This phobia may all stem back to the fact that the tights required for my high school dance team ensembles were "one color fits all" -- and that color was not for moi. Although I am NO fashion expert, I've also cringed many times over the years when I spot any type of hose worn with open toed shoes (bonus points if they are reinforced toe!).
Enter my trepidation when I read this article yesterday about Princess Kate rocking sheer hose out and about. Admittedly, the hosiery Kate is wearing is a far cry from those dance team tights circa 1997, and her legs look great, but....I don't know if I am sold on this trend for the general population.
What's next? A comeback of slips (which Lauren and I both agree are way under-utilized)?
