Do women never wear hose anymore? Is it appropriate in Winter?

One of my younger friends told me she saw my facebook picture and asked if I was wearing hose. I was at a very formal dinner, at the local country club, celebrating my parents 50th anniversary. It gets cold here and I am 50; over the age of striped, or textured tights. Any idea? So far, I just use sunless tanning and don't wear the hose.

  • They are not "in" at the moment. However, if I feel like I want to, I will.

  • No.. No hose!
    Pantyhose are so 1980's! I didn't even know they sold them anymore until last year, when one of my employee's (who has Asperger's was talking about running her pantyhose!.... Really???)

  • I don't ever were TIGHTS i'm not 6 lol. If I have a skirt or a dress then yes the panty hose goes on, it just smooth out my color, since I don't tan and even though still in my 20's I don't have young looking legs. However even as a teen thats what I did in school, wore skirts with silk panty hose, they feel awesome against your legs.

  • I used to have a corporate job that required you to wear them. It was very professional. I had to wear a suit and jacket everyday. And it was within the last ten years. My Mom is a Flight Attendant for Delta and has been for almost 20 years and she has to as well. It is not an 80's thing. I didn't/don't wear them otherwise but mostly because I live in Southern California and don't need them but they are in style to wear colored(black/brown) tights in the winter with skirts.

  • I avoid dresses as much as possible especially in the winter but when I do wear one I prefer stockings.

  • UGH, no. I hate pantyhose. They look old-woman like. And if I'm showing my legs, I want to show off the tattoos on them, not have them blurred by hose.
