Everyday Hosiery: Wear to Work Nylon

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I love my new job. And one of the many, many things that makes it better than my old job is the fact that I can wear tights to work. I’ve already talked about some of my favorite stockings in the article “Nude Hosiery for Women of Color,” but now that it’s starting to get a bit chilly outside, I’ll need to exchange my dresses for pants and my pantyhose for knee highs. Like the rest of you though, I’m operating on a much smaller lingerie budget than usual, so why don’t we look at fab knee-high finds for $10 or less?

I’ve been using a lot of words to sing the praises of We Love Colors and Sock Dreams lately, and there’s a reason for that. They have good stuff at good prices. Both We Love Colors and Sock Dreams stock a plethora of work-friendly knee highs at prices ranging from $3.50 to $8.00 a pair. That’s right; you can buy an entire week’s worth of knee-highs socks from either of these fine companies and still have enough left over for a nice dinner.

If you’d rather go with basic sheers, Nordstrom’s has several very reasonable options. Those of you who spend a lot of time on your feet might like the Cushioned Sole Light Support Knee Highs while my Spanx fans (I know you’re out there!) may want to give their 2/$14 trouser socks a try. In addition, Bare Necessities sells opaque knee-high socks from the ever popular budget brand, Hue, for only $6/pair or 3/$15.

Finally, you all know that no discussion of hosiery is complete without talking about the European brands. MyTights stocks a couple of excellent selections from Aristoc and Transparenze at $8.95 and $9.95/pair, respectively. Either of these would be perfect for adding a bit of sass to your workday wardrobe.

If you have a go-to brand for your work hosiery needs, why don’t you tell us about in the comments section? As always, Happy Shopping!

    You know, when it starts to get really chilly, it might be a good idea to wear pantyhose under your pants.
