Stockings and socks
Stockings and socks sound like such simple, day-to-day articles – and they are, but they come in shapes and styles to suit any occasion.
For example, a pair of sheer tights can keep your legs that much warmer on a cool summer evening, or a pair of thick woolen tights can allow you to wear a skirt in late autumn, winter or spring. A pair of pop socks can allow you to wear fashionable ballet flats more comfortably, or a pair of thicker socks can help keep your rubber boots on when gardening or fishing. A pair of legwarmers or footless socks can be a great help to a dancer, just as the right pair of sports socks can make an athlete’s life more pleasant. And not forgetting that the right pair of stockings at the right time can spice up any occasion!
There are so many different ways one can wear these items, whether for practical or fashionable reasons, that they’re more worth thinking about than one might suppose.
