How to Buy Womens Fashion Hosiery

If you have long and slim legs then you're primed for all kinds of fashion hosiery!

But if your legs are a bit on the shorter or curvy side, you might want to carefully select the right hosiery because the wrong ones can easily add pounds and even shorten them :S

So be extra careful with tights that add width (eg. horizontal prints) because they'll make your legs look the worst thing imaginable on a pair of legs - short and stumpy!

How to Get the Most Out of Your Hosiery

Essential, basic black tights
If you want to get the most out of your money you first need to secure hosiery in simple, versatile styles and colors.

Examples are: Sheer pantyhose and stockings, as well as black spandex leggings without any fancy or complicated details.

To maximize their flexibility you might want to select a neutral color such as black or nude! In this way, you'll be able to wear them with the rest of your wardrobe without worrying about if they match, and you'll always have something to wear for every occasion.

A tip is to begin by securing the wardrobe hosiery essentials and then build on them based on your major daily activities (work, casual evenings, traveling, parties, etc.), personal style and latest fashion trends.

For example, if you've secured basic sheer pantyhose in black and nude, you can build your collection with a pair of lace hosiery or sheer tights with black polkadots or vertical stripes.
