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

Quote of the day: “A river cuts through a rock not because of its power but its persistence.” Kathleen Hogan Madzin

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

This is the category that it is most common for us women to pull out our pantyhose.  Especially the black ones since formal attire is so naturally black! The hosiery I picked for our posts from Fiore, is certainly tame and usual, but the company does have some very interesting designs available.  The price is less than $10 a pair which is a plus since we all know the fragility of this item! Besides it’s nice to have a couple extra pairs in your possession in case the inevitable run happens. The first two posts in this series focused on wearing these same hose for the office (here) and with a casual outfit (here).

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: I knitted this “wrap” but don’t wear it much.  I love that it has “sleeves” but I wish it were longer in the back to actually keep me warm. It was a one-skein project and I tend to wear it more as just a short scarf.

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: I do think a sheer pair of black hose looks fabulous with a black dress, so there is some contrast between legs and skirt! Isn’t Nancy’s hemline terrific?

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: Mom loves wearing any kind of hosiery to cover up her legs!  We just cleaned out her hosiery drawer and found that she has over 100 pairs!! Anyone else out there guilty of this hoarding collecting phenomenon?

Thanks to Fiore for the inspiration and hosiery! Mom loved these tights because they were quite opaque.  She did think they ran a little small and would have gone up a size.

And here’s some dressy dresses to go out on the town wearing:

  • Kathleen McDermott

    Yes, guilty. I definitely have 100 of an item, in fact, many items.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Ha ha!! Mom will feel better that she’s not the only one!! (Of course, I haven’t actually counted mine, so I could be just as guilty??)

  • 3 swanky ladies rocking 3 gorgeous dresses. Love the print of yours, Nancy’s hemline is fabulous but I have to agree with Samantha, your Mum has triumphed again! When she’s finished with the dress, may I have it??? 🙂

    • How cute you are…the bad thing is my mother does not “finish” with any of her clothing. It takes a crow bar to pry anything old out of her closet to give/throw away—and trust me…I try!

  • I always struggle with how to wear tights. These are all great examples of making it work!

    • I’m laughing a little because it might be easier to wear tights as you get older since we tend to like to cover up our legs!!

  • Jodie, you all look so beautiful! What fantastic styling you have achieved. Nancy’s tights go beautifully with that dress, they have finally found their perfect look. She looks stunning and has almost stolen your Mum’s limelight….BUT your Mum is Rocking this AGAIN!! Can this lady look anything but fab? That dress, those shoes….she is gorgeous!
