Finding new, inventive and yet still warm enough outfits during the winter is a challenge even for the best stylists out there. Sweaters are repurposed as dresses, summer dresses are layered and repurposed for the winter, leggings you won’t be caught dead wearing except to bed suddenly become typical under-your-jeans wear.
Seriously, we’ll do some crazy stuff in the name of fashion, but none crazier than in the name of staying warm when its freezing out there. That said, thigh high stockings are definitely back on the style radar, so to speak, and this time, they aren’t just a convenient way to keep you warm during formal events without having to readjust your crotch area every few minutes (looking at you hose!). Instead, fashion bloggers are pulling them out and using them as statement making accessories in and of themselves, especially with dresses and skirts that qualify as “winter minis,” if you will.
The only question left is, “Are you willing to give it a go?” Do thigh high stockings have a place in the fashion world outside the bedroom? We think so — and these six pairs are really good starter options.
