How to Style and Wear Stockings

You know what you don’t see often? Stockings anymore, and it’s such a bummer because it’s SUCH an excellent accessory to have in the colder months and can look SO CHIC. I feel like we look at stockings as an older, outdated thing in our grandma’s closet- but I am here to make it look chic, attainable, and a part of your closet. Let’s dive in on how to style and wear stockings …

Nowadays, there are so many fun and different stockings, from shimmer to rhinestones to fishnet ones! Now, do you need all of them? No, but a good basic black one is great to have! If you live somewhere really cold, these fleece-lined ones from amazon are GREAT to have.

If you want to add a little *spice* I think a fun fishnet or even something with a little pattern is also nice to have, but again not needed.

But Sheertex has some amazing ones! I have like 3 and love them. And they truly are unrippable… believe me I have tried. They are currently having a sale too! Talk about perfect timing 😝

No matter the dress, whether it’s fancy, or a casual sweater dress, wearing your stocking with dresses can look so chic! Because I have only black stockings, I tend to wear black shoes to keep the look uniform and elongate the legs on my petite frame.

Of course, you don’t have to wear black shoes, but that’s my preference.

P.S. Blaire does stocking outfits like NO ONE else if you want inspo!

with a skirt

If you don’t love wearing dresses, skirts are a great item to pair with your stockings. The skirt can be any length or style! It’s a great way to keep those legs warm during the cooler months and still look chic!

The idea of wearing stocking underpants may seem a little weird, but I promise it looks SO good, especially if you’re wearing cropped denim with sandals or low-profile shoes. Next time try wearing black denim with your black stockings and black shoes. And that will create an elongated look on your legs, keeping everything the same color! Take a look at this outfit for example

Thank you so much for this article. I’ve always loved wearing tights, but they have not been very popular recently. All my friends go for the bare leg look even in cold Ohio winters. I like how you featured them with dresses — great looks. I also bought a couple of pairs of the Sheertex and love them. Thanks again!
