Street Style: Stockings, An Essential Accessory
When it comes to street style, there are a few essential wardrobe pieces that you surely have to own, in order to make the best of your look, and stockings are one of those pieces. A new trend for wearing stockings was first started in the 1960s, when the pantyhose were introduced to the people. Before that, stockings were meant to be worn with garter belts. But in the 1960s, the fashion of wearing stockings changed a little bit. Ladies were wearing stockings in many different, beautiful bold colors and patterns, matching them with their mini skirts and mini dresses. Nowadays, stockings are available in many different styles as well. These stockings come in sheer, ultra sheer, nude shades, darker shades, sandal toes, etc. But as an street style look, no one is using bold colors for stockings anymore, as much as they did in the 1960s.
Nowadays, either as a street style look or a dressy look, ladies are more into sheer, nude, or black stockings (depending on the outfit). These nylon stockings come in a big variety of shades and are available as anklet stockings, knee high stockings, and thigh high stockings. There are many women who love wearing thigh high stockings rather than other ones. Some stockings need a garter belt to be fixed in the right place, while the other ones can be used by a knit or elastic grip in order to help them stay comfortable against the thigh.
That’s why stockings are one of the most essential pieces for every lady’s stylish wardrobe. There are plenty of different stockings out there in the market and online, that you can choose from. And if you are into vintage fashion, you can find some vintage stockings online on websites like Etsy or Ebay. These are originally from the 1960s and come in a huge variety of shades and patterns.
