Fashion help, Part II
Ok, I went out with the intention of finding a nice top for some black velvety pants. I found a dress, instead. It's three quarter sleeved, slightly below the knee, surplice styling with runched side, in red. It was a HUGE bargain, $15. I believe the fashion gods were with me, the only one they had, in my size, and hidden away amongst all the dresses. AND, my husband really liked it. Phew!
So, now, I will be wearing some black heels with it. Should I wear black hose or nude hose?
Either will be fine, but I personally would wear black hose (or no hose!). If you are going with strappy sandals, then certainly no hose. Sounds like a great dress and a fabulous bargain. Pictures please!
No hose...if you really must though, I would go with nude.
When I wear hose, I always wear nude hose. they always look good, and you don't worry whether the black looks right.
I personally think that during something this formal, hose are a must. They pull the outfit together and make it look dressier, especially if you live in a cooler climate. But nude would be my choice....
Nude hose. Hose for dressy functions in the winter.
No hose...black would look funny with a red dress. I would wear nude hose if you have to wear any at all.
I agree that black hose would look funny with a red dress.
I would go for nude hose. If it was summertime, i would say no hose. But since it is a holiday, semi-formal party you should wear some hose.
Depending on the type of shoe,I think black hose would look nice with black shoes.
No hose and possibly strappy black or metallic shoes. I wouldn't go too "heavy" with a shoe. Here's a website that talks about red dresses:
I'm envious of that price!!
I never wear hose just for the pure fact that my father said I should wear them. I was 16 and he told me that, without hose, men might think I'm "available" IYKWIM? Where the heck do men get off inventing the d*mn pantyhose and then give advice when THEY don't have to wear it?
Ok, back to our regularly programmed thread...
Thanks so much ladies!
Heidi, thanks for the link. I saw those dresses and noticed that all the models were wearing nude hose, if they were wearing any at all (couldn't tell).
I'm definitely going with the black shoe (they are my multipurpose shoe) and nude hose.
