Happy National Stockings Day!

So today is National Stockings Day (or maybe yesterday was, honestly I've heard two different dates). Either way, it's time to give your legs a little love in celebration!

But first, a little lingerie lesson for you. Did you know that stockings are different than pantyhose? Although some may use the two terms interchangeably, they are two separate things. Both are typically sheer, but pantyhose go all the way up to the waist, while stockings only go up to the thigh (aka the thigh-high).


If you're not a big wearer of stockings (or pantyhose) I encourage you to start incorporating them into your wardrobe more. I mean, have you ever thought about how much of a statement you can make with your hosiery? Fashion experts are always saying that a few pieces of jewelry can completely change the look of an outfit, and I believe the same can be said for hosiery!
 
Think of it as accessorizing your legs, changing with your outfits and moods. Some times you feel a bit demure and lady-like. Other times you want to be wild and racy. Or somewhere in between. No matter what you're wearing or how you're feeling, there's always a pair of stockings or pantyhose or tights that will fit the bill (and make your legs look fabulous)!
