With temperatures dropping, one way to take an outfit from ordinary to extraordinary is to add eye catching hosiery. Patterned hosiery keeps the legs warm and adds additional texture and interest. Wearing coloured hosiery can be difficult, but I love this outfit, a monochromatic colour scheme with purple shoes, purple lace stockings and a purple patterned dress. A mixture of lace patterns and prints in one colour from head to toe finished off with solid coloured shoes in a darker shade.
Unfortunately, there’s the perception that patterned hosiery can be difficult to wear.
The key to wearing patterned hosiery successfully is not to allow them to overwhelm the rest of your clothing.
Stick to the rules, and as you can see, the look can be fantastic.
