9 Ways to Style Stockings
Stockings fit well for most kinds of outfits. You can add stockings to your outfit to make it look more sassy and classy. And you know what’s the best part of wearing them, it hides if you have some poky little hair growing on your legs. Although stockings were considered an outdated fashion for a short period of time. But in the last few seasons, we have seen some famous fashion influencers bringing back the stocking trend and how!
Adding a variety to your stockings drawer will let you style your boring outfits in many stylish ways. There is a wide range of stockings available like fishnets, sheer stockings, floral net and solid ones in such vibrant colours that could even stop hefty traffic.
All it takes is a slight push to evolve a stocking fan. One day you’ll pair them with your espadrille sandals, and just like that, a handful of new outfit ideas will pop into your head. Stockings not only make those spring-summer outfits wearable in autumn but also helps add colour to your new autumn wardrobe for transiting seasons — they also add a subtly hot touch to a leggy look, and of course, a bit more warmth.
Here, we round up 9 cool ways to style them:
1. Opaque Stocking
Opaque stockings are on point these days and you can get them in any colour. Don’t you think stockings settle well for any outfit? Add classic black tights to your structured romper and a turtleneck to get this edgy look. It works great for really short dresses, skirts and shorts.
2. Sheer Stockings
Sheer stockings look best in black or very see-through nude. You can wear nude stockings if you want to create a clean look. Nude stockings are a great pick for formal wear under pencil skirts and shift dresses. While black stockings would look better with winter outfits.
3. Edgy Fishnets
If you want to amp up the sex appeal of your outfit, you can never go wrong with fishnet stockings. Create an edgy and punk look by styling fishnet stockings with distressed jeans or style it with a bodycon dress for your Friday night clubbing scenes.
4. Textured Stocking
Floral patterns are embellishments are very much the trends right now and you may want to incorporate this trend with your stockings too. Using patterned stockings can very quickly look wrong or trashy or just draw too much attention on your legs and away from your face. If you like to use a pattern, you can stick to a subtle pattern in one colour. Make sure that the pattern blends in with your outfit and it can look great and make sure you pair them with cool high heels. If wearing patterned stockings, wear solid coloured outfits.
5. Polka Print Stocking
Make it quirky with this spotty stockings. These classic polka-dotted stockings can be paired with maxis, camisole dresses and even long skirts. Compliment these stocking with a pair of high heels and you’re ready to steal everyone’s heart.
6. White is the new black
Although black is known as the go-to colour when it comes to stockings, white can be just as chic – and far more authentic. Another bonus: they can make your coloured shoes really pop like a marquise diamond.
7. Add some sparkle
Fishnets often have intents of grunge when it comes to the catwalk. However, these stockings give a very girly update by adding sparkly embellishments. These would work well for a special occasion – team with a champagne satin slip dress and dainty heels.
8. Embrace lace
Lace detailing is such a classy way to make your outfit look divine. Lace stockings can be a great way of adding a little texture into your look – and injecting a bit of attitude in the way a bare leg would not.
