Hosiery 2 (Casual)

Hosiery for the 50's, 60's, & 70's

Hosiery for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Casual Version

Quote of the day: “Stay away from negative people.  They have a problem for every solution.” Elizabeth Gold

We were gifted this hosiery from Fiore, but I was not paid to write this post.

Many of us in this day and age, do not think to wear a skirt, let alone hosiery for casual events.  But as I always say…I love being a woman with the variety of options of clothing available—and skirts fit this bill!  Hose are an added covering which helps with camouflage & warmth depending on your needs. I’ve been known to layer 2 pairs of hose over each other to help me from freezing in the winter months! All three of us are wearing a different variety of pantyhose. The first post in this series concentrated on wearing these same hose for a business day (here).

60’s Hosiery (Sheer): I just bought this swing trench coat for Nancy for her birthday.  And you thought that Forever 21 was too young for our age group…hah!

70’s Hosiery (Tights): I figure that tights are a great cover up when the skirt is on the shorter side. That and a pair of boots are very hip!

Thanks to Fiore for the inspiration and hosiery! Nancy’s take on her sheer hose: she was disappointed that they ran right away (but that is life, eh?) and would consider going up a size than what the chart says.

Here are some casual skirts–especially good for showing off boots:

  • This is a great post.

  • I love the hosiery trends for Fall!…too bad it’s too hot to wear any of them 🙁 I just dropped over from the MBA FB group!


    • It may be hot outside, but I have to laugh at how cold some restaurants keep their environment—sometimes I take a sweater more for the inside than the outside!!! Maybe I should take some hose and put them on in the restaurant and take them off when I leave….ha ha…wouldn’t that be a hoot?

  • It is too hot to wear hoisery over here but it definitely makes an outfit look smarter!

    • There’s always good and bad to every aspect of life, eh? I’d love the warmness of Singapore, but I definitely would miss the variety of weather and clothing!! On the bright side, think of all the money you save by not needing hosiery!!

  • I love opaque tights for winter and fleece lined versions are wonderful for coldest days. I love skirts year round for my casual life. Love your earrings and Mom’s light colored boots. Great trio of outfits, can’t imagine Fall yet with our heat.

  • These are all so fabulous! So glad to have discovered your blog… love the idea behind it! Style is for EVERYONE and I’m so glad to see someone showing that fashion is not just for young people..it’s for all people!

  • So fun! I love seeing how you each style them!

  • Cathy Skelly

    Are you going to post about colors of hose, and opaqueness? I always wonder when to wear what. Thanks.

    • Great suggestion!! I’ll work on that and do a Monday post on it in a couple months!!!! Thanks for the input Cathy!!!

  • More tights styling….yay!
    I love your look here, so cute and playful. But (once again) your mum is knocking it out of the park….those boots <3.
    She is the coolest Mum (or Mom) EVER!

    • My mom is a great sport for allowing me to “dress her up”….she has great clothes and amazing sewing talent!!! Thanks Samantha!!

  • MaryAnne

    You all look so nice in your casual outfits. Love the orange necklace against the denim shirt Jodie. Don’t you love wearing skirts and dresses to casual events? It makes you feel so feminine. : )

    • Exactly!!! I love that as women we have so much more variety of clothing for all occasions!!! Thanks MaryAnne
