5 Benefits You Can Get From Wearing Socks

5 Benefits You Can Get From Wearing Socks

There are a lot of things that we love about socks on top of them being fashionable. While their pretty colors and cute patterns are a plus, wearing socks also have a lot of benefits when it comes to protecting our feet and keeping them healthy. If you haven’t heard of them yet, here are five benefits that you can get from wearing socks.

1.   Socks Can Manage Moisture – One of the reasons why it feels unpleasant to wear shoes without socks is the moisture build-up. Closed shoes can make our feet sweat especially when we move around a lot. The sweat and moisture can make our toes feel sticky. In addition to that, the moisture build-up can also lead to bad odor, which is both a challenge to get rid of and a bad sign for unhealthy feet.

2.   Socks Protect Our Feet – We feel comfortable whenever we wear socks because socks are protecting our feet from rubbing against the rough materials of our shoes, cold floors, and other hazards that can harm our skin. Wearing shoes without socks can lead to the formation of blisters and calluses because of the constant rubbing or friction.

3.   Socks Reduce The Stress On Our Feet – Whether we are wearing high heels or not, our feet still suffer from the impact as we walk around. You will notice that calluses form usually on our heels and soles. That is because these are the parts of our feet that receive the most stress when we move. Wearing socks cushions our feet and reduces the stress from movement.

4.   Socks Help With Blood Circulation – Specialty socks like the Elly LUI LEI Microfibre socks provide compression, which helps to improve blood flow. For people who have circulation problems or those who are sitting or standing for long periods, compression socks will help your feet relax and reduce the risks of having a blood clot. In addition, helping improve the blood flow can make your feet feel less tired and prevent them from swelling.

5.   Socks Keep Our Feet Warm – Aside from being uncomfortable, having cold feet, can mess with our normal body temperature. Our feet are one of the parts of our body that quickly loses warmth, especially when we fall asleep. Keeping our socks on can assist with regulating our body temperature. Of course, keeping our feet comfortably warm during the cold weather is a welcome bonus!

Wearing socks comes with a lot of health benefits, and that is why we make sure that our socks collection at Hosieree.com not only are fashionable but also are high-quality.

Knowing The Best Time To Buy New Stockings

Knowing The Best Time To Buy New Stockings

We all have a pair of stockings we absolutely love and have grown attached to. Still, there will come a day when it’s time for our favorite pair to go. The question is how would we know when is the best time to replace our old, worn-out stockings? Here are the things you should look out for:

1.       How Old Are Your Stockings? – Time flies by fast and before we know it, a year has already passed. Stockings usually have a lifespan of six months to a year, gradually bearing tears and holes along the way. Of course, that also depends on how you care for them! If you think your stockings are already almost or over a year, it is time to do a thorough checkup and see how they are going.

2.       Has The Material Thinned? – Most often than not, we fail to notice that the fabric of our stockings has already grown thinner after numerous washes and uses. Thinned fabric makes your stockings more prone to tears and holes. Stretch too much and you might find yourself down a pair. If the material of your stockings has considerably thinned, it is about time to invest in new ones before your old pair finally decides to retire.

3.       Are Your Stockings Slipping Down? – How many times have you pulled and adjusted your stockings today? Another sign of worn-down stockings is that it has already been stretched too much and can no longer hug your legs securely. You can even say that your stockings have grown a little bigger after being stretched over and over throughout the year.

4.       Are They Still Comfortable To Wear? – Old stockings may have loose threads that can make your legs feel itchy. They can also lose the warmth and protective layer they initially had as the material grows thinner. Stockings slipping down from time to time can also be a bother as you need to constantly adjust them up. Thinking and dealing with all of these things can lead to discomfort. Consider buying a new batch of stockings when you do not feel as comfortable as you did when you first tried on the pair.

Stockings do have an average lifespan but it is still up to your tender loving care when it comes to making sure that they last long enough. One tip we can give you is to invest in high-quality stockings, like those in hosieree.com’s collection.

How To Master Tights

How To Master Tights

Tights can create a bold look. While the looks are trendy and all over the high-fashion runways, they can be a little intimidating to those who may not choose to go bold often. You can always start slowly with tights, or you can jump right in with trying all of the boldest looks right away. We at Hosieree.com want to help you to master tights, feel comfortable in every pair, and have fun with your hosiery collection. 

First and foremost, if you’re under-experienced in the world of tights, start with the classic – opaque black. Opaque black tights are a fashion staple, and you can wear them in bold looks, modest looks, and everything in between. They’re the pair of tights that will really let you play with your looks, see what you like, and branch out slowly if you so please. With opaque black tights, you can go shorter with your hemlines, brighter with your colors, and more interesting with your patterns. Another unintended perk? Opaque black tights can make you look slimmer instantly. 

On the other end of the spectrum are sheer tights. Where black tights are versatile and classic, sheer tights bring sex appeal. If you’re wearing a longer hemline and you want to bring a bit of sexiness into your look, sheer tights are the simplest way to do it. Additionally, if you’re wearing an A-line dress with a whimsical print, and you want to mature the outfit a bit, sheer tights and a pair of heels will make any quirky dress look more “adult”. If you’re wearing a shorter hemline or sexier look, however, you may choose a pair of tights that tone down rather than ramp up depending on the occasion. 

We have black, we have sheer, but what about colors? Any “drab” outfit that needs a little vibrancy or life can get that touch of excitement from a great pair of colored tights. Either opaque or sheer, colored hosiery brings a certain liveliness to any look and really turns something basic into something fun and full of personality. 

Whether you want to start small with a simple pair of opaque black tights, or you want to go all out with bright colors, bold patterns, and some sexy sheer hose, we have just what you need at Hosieree.com. Check us out today to see where your tights can take you! 

Choosing The Hosiery That Best Flatters Your Figure

Hosiery can transform your look in more ways than one. Not only can it bring your shorter hemlines to the office, your basic skirts to an edgy or high fashion level, and your shorts into the fall and winter seasons, it can also transform the way your body looks as well. Choosing hosiery to flatter your figure ensures you’ll always look your best no matter what you choose to wear. A few tips for choosing the hosiery that best flatters your figure are: 

• Bringing the height – Not all people have legs that go on for miles, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create the illusion that they do. If you’re looking to elongate the leg what you want from your hosiery are long lines. Our Cecilia de Rafael Hyde Park Back Seam Pantyhose  has back seams that take the eye all the way from the heel up to the back of the tight, elongating the leg in a simple, elegant, and classic way. 

• Vertical designs and small patterns slim the leg – If you’re looking to create a slimmer silhouette, vertical designs and small patterns are the way to go, and especially when on black hosiery. The Adrian Constance Fashion Sheers in Nero or Giulia Afina 40 Fashion Tights are perfect examples  you can find at Hosieree.com for subtle slimming you can mix and match with just about any outfit. 

• Color and bold patterns play up your curves – For those who wish to play up their curves, you may want to look into bold colors and bold patterns to give your legs a thicker, curvier, and bolder look. The Calzitaly Fishnet Tights with Leopardo Pattern are a perfect example of hosiery to really give your curves a moment in the spotlight using a bold pattern, while the Trasparenze Microfiber Sophie 70-Opaque Tights are just what you’re looking for if you’d prefer to play with color. 

With the right combination, your hosiery can really polish your outfit and give you the silhouette you’ve always dreamed of by adding one simple accessory. If you’re looking for your perfect hose to slim, elongate, or emphasize, check out what we have in stock at Hosieree.com today. 

5 Fall 2021 Fashion Trends To Invest In Now

5 Fall 2021 Fashion Trends To Invest In Now

While we’re in the peak of summer now, what that really means is that we’re going to be winding down into the fall season before we know it. The fall fashion trends for 2021 are big, bold, and ready to be seen after a year of social isolation, and we at Hosieree.com are loving so much of what we see. Here are 5 Fall 2021 fashion trends to invest in now are: 

1. Bright greens – While fall is usually full of muted colors and rich earthy tones things are slated to be quite a bit bolder this year. Bright green is one of the fashion staple shades of the season and it’s being seen in coats, sweaters, shoes, and even hosiery. Our Giulia Blues 70 Opaque Tights in Olive have that perfect mix of earthiness and brightness, making them not only a staple for 2021 but a pair of tights you can return to again and again. 

2. Lilac – Like bright green, we’re seeing another color that’s more often seen in spring popping up for fall fashion in 2021. Lilac is the new mauve this season and we think that the perfect way to welcome this shade into your autumn wardrobe is with elegant hosiery. The Fiore Sandrine 20 Stay Up Stockings in Light Lilac are sexy and timeless with heels, but they can also be quirky and fun with booties and a patterned skirt. 

3. Leopard outerwear – Like color, patterns are getting bolder this year as well. Leopard outerwear is seeing a huge resurgence in 2021 and we love the way a great leopard coat looks with a skirt and fishnet hosiery.  Paired with heels, boots, or even sneakers, it’s the simplest way to have a stand-out edgy look with minimal effort. 

4. Sweater vests – Sweater vests haven’t been seen as a huge trend in a number of years, but they’re back in a big way for fall 2021. For a modern take on a classic look, you can pair a sweater vest with a collared shirt, sleeves casually rolled up, and on the bottom wear a simple pair of tailored shorts with the fishnet, patterned, or colored hosiery of your choice. What you get is an on-trend look that combines texture, fabric, and style for plenty of interest. 

5. Cut-outs – In tops and pants, cut-outs are bringing a certain edge to all sorts of outfits in 2021. For distressed jeans, one can try layering fishnet hosiery under the jeans so the hosiery peeks out to say hello at each cut-out section. Pair with combat boots or heeled booties for the perfect touch.

At Hosieree.com we have all of the looks to bring your 2021 autumn fashion to the next level. If you’re looking to invest in your fall looks, see what we have at Hosieree.com today. 

3 Tips For Getting The Most Out Of Your Hosiery

Investment in great hosiery means getting the kind of hosiery that is built to last. You want the most out of your hosiery and while quality hosiery is built to take you through multiple seasons, this doesn’t come without the proper care. Taking great care of your hosiery ensures you get the most from it, and that it keeps you looking and feeling beautiful throughout. Here are 3 tips for getting the most out of your hosiery are: 

1. Always go for quality – The quality of your hosiery will mean a lot and one should always go for quality over quantity when it comes to hose. A handful of pairs of quality hosiery will take you further than a whole selection of lower-quality pieces, and the looks you’ll get from your hosiery will be of a higher quality as well. Making an investment in your hosiery gives you the most out of your collection. 

2. Go for reinforced toes for your everyday hosiery – If you wear your hosiery daily, and you want that hosiery to last through each day, you may wish to invest in reinforced hose. Our Calzitaly Ultra Sheer High Heel Pantyhose with Cushion are made for wearing every day and wearing with the added pressure of heels, with reinforced toes and soles to keep you comfortable and confident. 

3. Gentle washing is key – Keeping your hosiery strong requires gentle washing, and one should never just place their hosiery in the washing machine and forget about them. Using gentle soap, handwashing, and lay-flat drying you’ll be able to keep your hosiery strong and looking beautiful throughout years of wear. If you must machine wash your hosiery, or wash multiple pairs at once, using a lingerie bag to wash inside will keep your hosiery protected.

Stockings Are The Hottest Trend Coming Out Of Fashion Week

Stockings Are The Hottest Trend Coming Out Of Fashion Week

Stockings are back in a big way this season and were seen in looks all over the runways of Paris, Milan, and New York. We saw classic tweed pieces paired with thigh-high sheer white stockings in Paris. Milan runways featured knee-high sheer black stockings layered under ankle boots. While designers in New York showed jet black thigh high stockings with textures. Luckily, you don’t have to pay fashion house prices to add these trending looks to your closet.

What Is The Difference Between Pantyhose And Stockings?

People often use pantyhose and stockings interchangeably. However, there is a major difference between the two garments. Pantyhose are sheer and usually made of nylon with a denier weight between 8 and 30. They cover the full leg from the toe to the waistband. Stockings on the other hand can be sheer or opaque and range in denier weight. The key difference though is stockings vary in length between under the knee to mid-thigh. They are either secured with a garter belt or have a lining at the top to hold them in place.

Get The Look

Now that you know the difference between pantyhose and stockings, here is how you can get the runway looks. These options offer the same high-end designer quality but at a much more affordable price point:

Trasparenze Sara Classic Sheer: These sheer stockings have a denier of 20. They also have a reinforced toe and a glossy finish which makes them a perfect wardrobe staple. They come in a variety of colors to achieve the perfect look.

Elly Knee-Highs 140 Semi-Opaque: Available in black and two shades of nude tones, these knee-highs are a perfect way to capture the looks of the Milan runways. They are semi-opaque with a denier weight of 140. Great for everyday wear, these knee highs have a graduated compression that slims the legs and provides a comfortable wear.

Fiore Malena Suspender Stockings: If you are looking for a statement piece for your wardrobe, these sheer spotted tights are a must-have. Available in a gorgeous shade of ecru, they will easily match any outfit while still adding a bit of interest.

These three options are just some of the great choices available at Hoisieree.com. We offer a full range of stockings in every color, size, and denier weight you can imagine. All of our stockings are European-grade, so they are durable and will last you through this season and many more. The best part is they are affordably priced so you can get runway looks without runway prices.

What Is Color-Blocking And Why You Should Try It

What Is Color-Blocking And Why You Should Try It

Color-blocking emerged as a trend in recent years and as people become more and more adventurous with their fashion choices, this style is definitely here to stay. This trend is all about bold choices, leaving an impression, and making a statement, but in order to pull color-blocking fashion successfully, you should have a clear understanding of how it really works!

What Is Color-Blocking?

First things first, let’s define color-blocking. Like we mentioned, this style is pretty adventurous and bold, and these are one of the reasons why understanding it is important. Color-blocking is basically wearing two to three contrasting colors, and by contrast, we do not simply mean wearing black and white, or light blue and dark blue.

Color-blocking is about combining colors that are on the opposite ends of the color chart; colors that you would not dare to imagine together because they seem so different—or at least that’s the impression that they generally leave at first. You would be surprised at how two bold colors, like orange and pink, go well together!

Why Should You Try Color-Blocking?

Wearing blocks of colors are definitely eye-catching as you would expect to really pop out in the crowd. More than that, the unique combinations you create from wearing bold and contrasting colors can give you a fresh, youthful, and uplifting look. It is like being a spot of sunshine in a bleak and gloomy day!

Color-blocking also helps when you need to especially grab attention, like for important talks, client meetings, or parties. If you are able to find the perfect contrasting colors that magically complements each other, we are sure you will totally rock it.

Color-Blocking For Beginners

Finding outfits that you can color-block is easier said than done, but it does not have to be extremely challenging. For starters, you can narrow down your fashion pieces into two: top and legwear. Forgoing your usual denim jeans and black leggings, you might think that you’ve already run out of options for legwear. That’s far from true because Hosieree.com has just what you need: opaque tights!

Opaque tights go in various striking colors and unique textures so you have a lot of options to choose from. For instance, the Girardi Cortina Opaque Tights have a matte finish while the Cecilia De Rafael Uppsala has a smooth and glossy texture.

Finding the right legwear for your color-blocking fashion adventures is not that hard if you look in the right places, like Hosieree.com. We’ll be with you all the way!

Occasions That Call For A Great Pair Of Hose

At Hosieree.com we believe that every occasion calls for a great pair of hose, but we know that some events take precedence over others.

  • Weddings – The spring and summer months are high-time for weddings.

Opting for a pair of open toed hose lets you get the perfect polished look of hosiery on your legs, while still showing off your pedicure uninterrupted. The Falke Shelina Toeless Ulta Transparent Pantyhose are sheer, comfortable for summer, and feature an open toe design perfect for wearing with your favorite summer sandals. 
  • Job interviews – During a job interview you want to impress. First impressions can only be made once, and they begin as soon as you walk through the door. Hosiery is a necessity to ensure your look is polished, refined, and put together. A failsafe options is a pair of opaque hose in black or dark grey, or a sheer neutral tone that polishes the natural look of your skin. 
  • Fall and winter – If you plan to wear a dress or skirt during the fall and winter months, hosiery is a necessity. For these occasions, you want to look for an opaque higher denier pair of hosiery to ensure you’re kept warm if you’re going to be outdoors. Not only does it polish your look, it serves a practical purpose in keeping you comfortable as well. 
  • Attending religious services – If you’re attending a religious service of any kind it’s also important to top off your look with a high quality pair of hosiery.
