I just checked the blog “dashboard” a second ago and realized someone found this blog by searching for “What hose to wear with denim mini.” (As a side note, ‘pantyhose’ is a word I really don’t like.)

If you’re reading this, please…unless you’re going for some sort of punk-goth thing where you could pair fishnet stockings with a mini, even though it comes across as super trashy…(we remember this girl, right?)

…I highly suggest NOT wearing hose with a mini. Maybe avoiding the mini all together if you feel the urge to wear hose with it.

Pantyhose are typically worn in very conservative, formal settings. Like if you’re working in a top law firm or you’re running for president. Denim minims are typically worn in fun, casual atmospheres like beach parties and bbq’s. You shouldn’t mix the two.

Even celebrities who try to add pantyhose where there shouldn’t be any end up looking bizarre. Witness Christina.

If SHE can’t pull of hose with a mini, you shouldn’t even try.

    Maybe Christina should have invested in a nude colored bra as well.
    I agree Jen- pantyhose should only be worn in the most consevative settings.
    Plus, it seems they always end up making your legs appear as if they were outlined, which is a look I could never get into.

    Good call, Steph, on Christina needing a nude bra too. You’d think she’d have “people” that let her know what to wear. But then again, maybe not.

    What are you talking about Hose look good with anything. I wear them everyday with Short Skirts, with shorts, and even long pants no matter what the weather. they make my leg look so much better, and my husband like it too..

    Donna, if it makes you happy, go for it. And if it makes your hubby happy, then even better. 🙂 You won’t catch me doing it, but to each her own, right? Happy Friday!

    i think women look better in pantyhose than the bare leg look & most men i have asked say they prefur women in pantyhose.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I think pantyhose look especially hot with a mini…or just about any other outfit

  • 7. Lara  |  May 1, 2008 at 10:48 am

    I love the way panyhose look and feel. i am a sexy woman and men do notice and comment about my legs when i wear pantyhose. you would be crazy to write them off for only conservative settings….explore alittel and love it….

    I think she looks great in the nude pantyhose. I think we should wear them more often.

    I think there are many women out there who have been brainwashed by the fashionistas that their bare legs and feet in strappy sandals look good. This “bare all” look has done nothing but showcase some of the most hideous looking legs and nastiest looking feet and toes I’ve ever seen! Blech!

    I say it’s high time hosiery comes back in style. It’s just gross…

    Women everywhere can where pantyhose whether it is in a formal or casual setting. The fashion models on the runways are seen wearing pantyhose, and celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Zooey Deschanel, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Christina Aguilera, are frequent pantyhose wearers. Some of my friends even wear pantyhose when going to school, clubbing, or meeting people, not just in the workplace.

    Unless your legs are tanned and smooth, the so called bare leg look is hideous, disgusting, and slutty. I don’t know what these liberal fashionistas are thinking by brainwashing women today with their fashion agendas through the mainstream media from magazines, TV shows such as Sex and the City, and the internet

    Not all women can pull the bare leg off if their legs are pasty, blotchy, veiny, and have scars on them. Or if their toes are out of shape.

    Pantyhose can cover those hideous looks on the legs and put the toes back in shape. Women should follow their own instincts about pantyhose, and not worry about the fashionistas, and their friends’ negativity towards pantyhose, as it is like giving into peer pressure. Those who say that pantyhose is dead or out of style are completely wrong. It is something that is made up by the fashionistas in the media to get women to follow their agendas instead using their own instincts.

    It is great to see all the people that love Silky Pantyhose typing in here. It has been a sad 10 years past that people have been obeying ‘brittany’ and sarah jessica parker and lazy girls.

    If a woman does not like Pantyhose, fine, do not wear them. But for the ones that do like them, please wear them – we gentlemen adore you in them. It is the most feminine thing a woman can wear. Great looking, sexy feel, stylish, fashionable and so many ways to wear them. My last girlfriend told me that most girls think there is one kind of Pantyhose- the 3 dollar pair that does not feel,fit or last too well. – And with Pantyhose it is surely ‘you get what you pay for’. (Try the high-end brands). Very Smooth and Silky!

    The word ‘Pantyhose’ has thrown many off. It is always pronounced wrong which only makes it worse. Magazines and television have even stopped using the word- Just using words like ‘tights’ – even when they are super sheer -(as England/Ireland/Scotland has always been calling them), ‘leggings’ (?) (even when they are not footless) or just ‘hosiery’. Anything but the ‘P’ word, unless they were using the word for a joke.

    As a Gentleman, it is lovely to see a Woman that went that 1 last step in her wardrobe – especially when it is adressing her lovely legs. Again, we gentlemen adore you Ladies in silky Pantyhose, even if we are too shy to admit it.

    P.S. Thank you for the Christina photo-
    Love the sexy Legs in smooth Pantyhose.

    And what do you mean, “if she can’t pull off ‘hose’ w/a mini you shouldn’t…” ???
    You may not like her outfit- but she obviously ‘pulled it off’, the magazines think so too (not that I pay too much attention to what they say), the fans love it, the non-fans (moi) love it, the men are swooning and those Legs look so sexy! Be a rock-star- don’t be boring- Let’s make this world a Silkier place.

    The hose look great on her. The clown face makeup, on the other hand…

    Manifesto For Pantyhose and Nylons

    Preface: Before women get all upset after reading this, let me say I am for equality between men and women, but that DOES NOT mean there should be a double
    standard when it comes to professional and classy dress. As it stands today, women can get away wearing pretty much what they want in all environments –
    work, school, the symphony etc. I’ve even read stories/postings and seen where women show up to school or work at professional environments in their PJ’s a
    T-shirt and flip-flops, and clearly just rolled out of bed…yet they still demand R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Men, on the other hand, are still expected to dress in a
    shirt, tie, socks and nice shoes before they get respect. This is unfair and it’s time to do something about it.

    So now that a recession is upon us and nylons are making a small come-back, perhaps it is time to fight against this nonsense and insist on changes. I think
    those who think those who follow the New York/Hollywood fashion world a little too religiously when it comes to poor taste, especially in the lack of wearing nylons or pantyhose, need be made to make a choice about their livelihood. I propose that those of us who have the ability follow this manifesto.

    1. If you are in a business casual environment and are tired of seeing flip-flops and bare-legs, talk to management to get them to “spruce up” the dress code to show professionalism to each other and to clients.

    Tell them that it is illogical reasoning to assume that “I don’t see clients; therefore I should not have to wear nylons”. Are they robots and just sit at
    their desks all the time? Do they not go out for lunch, and are they 100% sure that a client or potential client is not in their building checking out their
    environment? Besides, their job is not there for their personal comfort, it is there to service the needs of their customers and their comfort. And yes,
    That does include IT workers. I am in the IT field and have been so for over 10 years and have witnessed the decline has its roots in that field, particularly during the “DOT COM” days in the late 1990’s. Just throw around words like “Application Service Provider”, “India” and “Outsourcing” to get the attitude to change in the IT shops of businesses.

    I’ve researched this bit and my conclusion regarding performance and dress codes is this. Relaxed dress codes do increase productivity, but ONLY for a short period of time. After the novelty of a relaxed dress code wears off does one discover that people are actually more careless about their work, less customer service oriented (honestly, do you believe that customer service has gotten better in the last 10 years in any industry?) and you see less productivity and more tardiness. The solution, dust of the 1995 employee handbooks and move back to a formal dress code which includes shirt and ties for men, and nylon hosiery for women.

    Also, it appears that as the dress code has slipped in professional settings, sexual harassment has actually increased as women feel more comfortable baring more skin. This is another good argument to bring up with your employers, because sexual harassment could end a company’s life and all the jobs within it faster than you can say “Paula Jones”.

    Insist that you feel that the business is applying a double standard against men by making them wear socks while girls can go bare. The employer legally has
    the right to dictate a dress code in the U.S. as long as it is applied uniformly and fairly. If your business is casual attire, you might have to accept
    requiring socks or opaque tights as well as pantyhose for a while. But those in business casual environments or smart casual which require socks at
    aminimum, perhaps the time is right to introduce that women should have to wear hosiery, particularly if you are a man and have to wear a suit and tie.

    2. If you are owner, in a hiring or decision making roll in your business, do not hire consultants or potential female employees who show up bare-legged. If
    they can’t be bothered to present their best selves on a first interview, its indicative there could be attitude problems later.

    3. Keep track of the aggressive female employees who complain if/when a new policy requiring nylons is implemented…put them on the short list of people to
    let go when the company needs to scale back due to hard economic times.

    4. Be aware of the “passive aggressive” types, who when given the requirement to wear nylons, simply refuse and try to “sneak by” by wearing longer pants and
    shoes, but who you can still tell are not wearing hose when they sit down. Add them to your shortlist to let go as well.

    5. Do not hire female lawyers. I’ve read about 60% of law students these days are female. I’ve also noticed the greatest trend (by reading through blogs on
    the topic of professional dress and nylons is of women insisting on not having to wear nylons) are the women lawyers (Think Reese Witherspoon’s character
    comment in Legally Blond “Pantyhose…it’s just not me”). OK, if there not you, you’re fired because I only want professionals, and YES professional dress IS important. Besides, the US and the world need less lawyers anyways.

    6. Do not transact business or monies (of significant value) with women who are dressed like slobs and do not wear nylons. If you are buying/selling a home,
    or cars, jewelry or other goods of significant value where they make a commission, choose a man, or better yet a well dressed woman. I have turned down
    service from women who dress like men (black pants, pull over shirt, socks or no socks) or slobs (bare legs, open-toed shoes) and have purchased big items from a man instead. It is a little uncomfortable, but when the manager asks, I just say “Look, I’m spending a lot of money here…and I believe in all aspects of professionalism. Your female employee does not exhibit the characteristics I consider professional, she’s got a nose ring, and a funcky visible tattoo, and she isn’t even wearing nylons. Sorry, but I choose not to spend my money validating that attire.”

    7. All things being equal, promote women who truly support the requirement to look professional and wear hosiery, demote or fire (see point 3) those who will not.

    8. Complain to the networks who let their anchor’s bare-legged. I complained about Katie Couric multiple times, and while it did not amount to much, I am
    glad to see she moved to CBS, where she is struggling and may be leaving the network soon. I’ve also complained about Megan Kelly of Fox News multiple times. I watch Fox news much less now because she is all over the place (and I’ve let them know that I’m tired of seeing her…I find her tacky, unprofessional and somewhat smarmy). Also, guess what Megan Kelly is…that’s right, a lawyer (see point 5).

    9. Do not support anything that Candace Bushnell produces, writes or sells. Candace is the brain-child author/producer of Sluts in the City, I mean “Sex and the City”. She is an avowed pantyhose hater (that’s why her trampy characters went bare and helped propel the movement of bare-legs everywhere). Her latest TV garbage is called “Lipstick Jungle” on NBC. More tackiness and ugly toes and legs. Ban that garbage from your television.

    To conclude…I beleive the gender feminism has gone way to far and now men are second class citizens to women. We see it in the court system where women get better treatment over men in custody and ad we see it in our popular culture where little boys have no honorable heroes and are told to suppress there boyish ways and expected to act and behave like good little girls, and if they do not they are drugged you with Prozac. Yet, we discover left unattended, women/girls are MORE violent, more dishonest more deceptive, less contrite and more aggressive than boys could ever dream of being as evidenced by this latest round of aggressive girl teenage violence. I believe women/girls who have chosen to not wear hosiery is a symptom of this overall problem. We are not teaching girls to GROW UP to be honorable women and ladies, instead we are allowing them to be the worst of MEN, tramps and sluts. The time is now to reverse the trend while there are still decent and honorable men who can have the courage to look a woman/girl in the face and say, “No, I don’t accept this nonsense…you will dress like a lady or I will no longer date you, no longer employ you, no longer let you have my money etc.”
