One of the things I really adore, and love to have an opportunity to wear in these cold days are stockings and tights. My collection is quite big, and while I have the classic ones in black, I always tend to buy those with some extra color or print on them (what a surprise 😉 ) ! This pair in mustard yellow is my favorite – perfect color to fight of dark winter shades, but also incredibly warm and comfortable!
Do you love to wear stockings or just avoid them all together, do tell !
Kisses from Miss Dee 🙂 !
PS. Thank you my dear husband for being photographer for a day ! :*

SHORT HISTORY OF STOCKINGS:
For me, one rather interesting fact is that men wore stockings before women even did, but they were called hose and by the twelfth century were a staple in a man’s wardrobe.
By the 16th century men’s tunics shortened so more of the leg was exposed. This pushed men to also feel that they needed to have nicer legs and the perfect par of tights. Do you remember Henry VIII 🙂 ?
Before the 1940s, women would not leave the house without wearing a pair of silk stockings. In fact, it wasn’t considered appropriate to be bare-legged in public whatsoever unless you were at the beach.

In the 1960’s when skirts were worn very short and many women began to wear tights (pantyhose) instead of stockings. Thankfully stockings have become fashionable again, and can be seen in fashion magazines and runway shows.
