How To Wear Stockings

How To Wear StockingsNothing gives you confidence the way that a pair of fashion stockings do. You just slip them on and you feel like you could take on the world in style.

However, before you throw a pair on, there are a few things you should know first.

Stockings are typically much more convenient to wear than pantyhose and they go wonderfully with a nice skirt or dress. Not to mention the large variety of colors, patterns, and finishes you can find at Still, every closet should at least have one pair of nude or black stockings just to cover your bases.

While most of us think of stockings as something exciting for the bedroom, they can actually do wonders for a professional, casual, or fun outfit too when styled right. This makes stockings a timeless addition to any wardrobe.

Once you have the essentials down, you should have no trouble experimenting with your stocking look. You can try pairing that little black dress with a bold pair of Valentis Suspender stockings or wear a nice pair of Coco Classic Sheer stockings with a causal pair of shorts. From lace to fishnet to stripes and swirls, the choices are endless.

How To Wear Your Fashion Stockings

If you are planning to wear stockings as part of your daily outfit, the best way for you to appear presentable is to wear them with a dress or skirt that falls just above your knees. You will want to make sure that this dress or skirt is long enough to avoid the top band from showing when you decide to sit down.

However, if you are planning to wear them for party or pleasure, you are free to be a lot more creative and daring with your stockings.

How To Wear Your Fashion Stockings With A Garter Belt

Typically, fashion stockings are meant to be worn with a garter belt in order to ensure they don’t end up slipping down on you. However, there are stockings known as ‘hold-ups’ that have bands of elastic at the top of the thigh that keep your stockings up throughout the day. While hold-ups are more practical and can save you a bit of time, there is nothing wrong with sticking to the classic garter belt system as long as you know what you are doing.

  1. Wear your stockings and garter belt underneath your underwear and skirt or dress.
  2. Pull the garter belt up to your hips.
  3. Make sure to adjust the straps so that the front ones are 2 inches shorter than the back straps and 1 inch shorter than the straps on the sides. This will cause a bit of a pull in the front, but ensures that you will be covered when you sit down.
