So do you wear stockings with skirts/dresses?
especially for example to work?

i have read some places that it is neccesaary and and others say it doesnt really matter?

Me personally I think if i did wear it it might cause huge irrtation........because i suffer from hyperhydrosis in the feet......and wearing stockings with shoes might create a huge slippery mess and not to mention the blisters to go with it?

so any ideas/advice? Confused

It depends on the dress code. But generally yes you are supposed to wear pantyhose with skirt/dress. In the winter, definitely. However in the summer unless the dress code is conservative I think you can get away with bare legs- for a business casual dress code I think bare legs in the summer are ok. Of course, the skirt/dress can't be short and the shoes have to be conservative also (your toes are covered).

I agree with Nimue. Office settings dictate hose wearing. It just looks classy. And especially in the winter a heavier hose is a must.

What do you mean by that? Do you think it's ok to wear opaque hose with a skirt in the winter? (I honestly don't know, so far I've only worked in the office in the summers, and I've always worn non opaque hose to interviews)

Pants are also an option... And *maybe* opaque tights are ok, so you could find some comfortable ones, and they're definitely more ocmfortable, not to mention warmer, than hose.

If I understand you correctly, you're planning on wearing hose with a skirt/dress, and also wearing socks on top of the hose? If you can find socks that you can't see once you put on shoes I guess that can work.

Thats exactly what I meant. I would. A black pencil skirt, black opaque hose either solid or patterned with black shoes or boots looks sharp.

hi Nimue, what i meant was maybe wear those footsies socks on first then the hose on top......that way my feet wont get irritated with hose on Confused and footsies cannot be seen from the shoes cause they barely cover the toes and bottom of feet........iv worn those before with pants cause hose or not my feet still get sweaty and irrtated even with normal shoes
