Usually when I wear over-the-knee stockings I feel trashier than usual (as shown in above image). It must be the association to private school girl outfits. I would consider tights as an alternative but it’s just not the same. In fact, I almost resent tights. Maybe it’s because my mom pressures me to wear them too often: “Sindy-ah, wear tights. It cold outside”. I would have worn tights to my own pleasure but mom just has to ruin it by telling me to so then I no longer want to. It’s the I-would-have-but-not-anymore-now-that-you-want-me-to syndrome.
So here I am, bare-legged over the years, continuously unsatisfied with tights, stockings and socks of all heights and styles. Then, OH, what’s this I see? … all of the above?! Who would have thunk. The combinations are endless! Brilliant, splendid, simple yet sophisticated. An agreement both my mom and I can finally come to. I can hear her already, “Sindy-ah, why you wear more than one… you look like clown”. Damn it, mom….
The coolest of them all? Tights that appear to be both stockings and tights. Check out Taylor Momsen and Charlene rocking them out.
