4 Ways To Wear Your Favorite Shorts Into Fall

4 Ways To Wear Your Favorite Shorts Into Fall

At Hosieree.com, we’re all about taking your favorite wardrobe pieces and utilizing them in unique and fashion forward ways. With the right hosiery, your favorite shorts are no longer a summer staple; they’re a year-round staple you can enjoy well into the fall! When you pair your shorts with hosiery, not only are you cool-weather friendly, but you’re given a whole new world of possibilities when it comes to creating stand-out outfits.

The key component to remember when taking your shorts into fall is pairing them with the right hose. You can pair a cut off pair of distressed denim shorts with fishnet hose for a punk-rock look, and just as easily you can pair a tailored pair of shorts with solid opaque tights for something sleek and ready for the office. Once you have your hosiery pairings down, you can then start to branch out into pairing with accessories and additional layers for a new fashion-forward look every day. 4 ways to wear your shorts and hosiery into fall are:

  • Set yourself up with a blazer – If you’re looking to take this look into the office, pairing with a blazer is a must. Take your favorite pair of tailored shorts, an opaque pair of tights, and a tucked in blouse and pair these elements with a sophisticated blazer. Never thought you could wear shorts to work? Think again!
  • Use longer shorts for extra movement – If you want something a little more retro inspired, longer shorts that go down to about the knee with a little movement are perfect. Paired with a quirky blouse, opaque hosiery, and T-strap heels, you’ll be perfectly executing those vintage vibes.
  • Get grunge cozy – Fall is all about those cozy looks, and the grunge look is bigger than ever this year. Take a distressed pair of shorts, pair with fishnet hose, and layer over top a chunky knit cardigan for a perfect cozy grunge look.
  • Day to night – Shorts and hosiery is a perfect choice for day to night looks. The same tailored shorts, hosiery, and blazer look that was ideal for the office is taken to happy hour by switching out your top for one with a little sparkle and some sky-high booties.

With fall fully underway, there is no better time to try out some of these fashion-forward looks for yourself. If you’re looking for the perfect hose to take your shorts into fall, check out what we’ve got at Hosieree.com today!

Do You Know The Difference Between Stockings And Tights?

Do You Know The Difference Between Stockings And Tights?

If there’s one question, or two, that is constant in the world of women’s legwear fashion, it’s this: What’s the difference between stockings and tights? And which ones should you choose? At Hosieree.com, we believe it’s a matter of personal preference as they both have many positive qualities. If you aren’t sure what your personal preference is, consider the differences to determine which is right for you.

Stockings

Stockings start at the foot and cover the leg up to the mid-thigh, or sometimes just above the knee. They are work with a suspender belt to keep them from falling down. (Note – Do not confuse thigh highs with stockings. Thigh highs have a silicone strip along the top of each leg to hold them in place.)  Most stockings are sheer, but there are some opaque varieties available. Some of the benefits of wearing stockings include:

  • They make you feel empowered. (There’s something about being the only one who knows that you’re wearing a sexy back-seam stocking under your suit.)  
  • They fit all body shapes and sizes.
  • With better air flow to your bottom, stockings can keep your cooler and more comfortable.
  • They come in so many fun and flirty styles, you can wear them for any occasion.

One disadvantage of stockings is that they cannot be worn with too-high skirts or shorts.

Tights

Tights cover your legs from the toe to the waist. They’re traditionally thicker than stockings, but they now come in a wide variety of deniers and opacities. Some of the benefits of tights include:

  • They can be a lifesaver if you live in a cold climate.
  • You don’t need suspenders to wear them.
  • They can be worn under shorts and very short hemlines.
  • You can find them in beautiful patterns and designs.

One disadvantage of tights is that they can be too restricting and warm due to the full coverage.

Whether you prefer stockings or tights, we have a beautiful variety of colors and styles. They’re all made from the highest quality European fabrics available, which make them feel as good as they look. Browse through our selection for the hottest styles and trends to make your legs happy. You might just end up choosing both.

4 Ways To Wear Fishnet Stockings To Look More Classy Than Trashy

4 Ways To Wear Fishnet Stockings To Look More Classy Than Trashy

Fishnet stockings have been worn by women for decades. They are stylish, edgy, and they make a statement. Women who wear fishnets do not go unnoticed, but how you wear them can determine the perception of those who notice you. There are, however, ways to wear fishnets that look elegant and tasteful. Try following these 4 tips for fishnet perfection.

1 – Choose your outfits wisely. Avoid becoming the classic image that people get in their minds with they hear the word “fishnet stockings.” You know, high cut mini-skirt, low cut tank top, and stiletto heels. Reserve that for Halloween fun and keep your outfit tasteful. Try pairing Olympia Fishnet Pantyhose with a pair of capris or a skirt that hits below the knee. 

2 – Choose a smaller fishnet pattern. Fishnets can be worn elegantly when they come in a tiny, subtle pattern. If you want to wear a shorter hem or an edgier outfit, the tiny design on Bellissima’s Microette Fishnet Tights adds a level of sophistication as opposed to shock.

3 – Avoid too much noise.  By this we mean, don’t wear bright and bold patterns with your fishnet stockings. Avoid items like large hoop earrings and hot red faux alligator bags. Let your fishnets be your stand-out accessory. This gives you room to get bold with a pair of fishnet tights with vertical stripes

4 – Close your toe. Can you wear stockings with an open toe? Sometimes. Can you wear fishnet stockings with an open toe? Never. Open toe shoes and fishnets are like nails on a chalkboard; jarring. Keep it classy and only wear closed toed shoes with your fishnets

You Have To Feel Good To Look Good

One final thing to keep in mind: If you don’t feel comfortable wearing fishnet stockings, don’t. Some people feel that they are too risqué, regardless of how they’re worn. In order to look good on the outside, you must feel good on the inside, so if fishnets don’t make you feel good, you won’t look good despite your best efforts.

But if you can’t wait to buy your first pair, or fifteenth pair, of fishnet stockings, you’re in luck. At Hosieree.com, we have a wide range of options available. Fishnets are a lasting trend that goes back to the basics of feminine legwear. Browse through our products and pick the best pair to take make your legs more glamorous than ever.
