Bare legs with dresses have been the norm for a good while now, but it seems the tide may be changing, at least a little. The Duchess of Cambridge is reported to have been on a

I really hope it does, I think it looks much more a "finished" look to have hose on, especially if you are dressed up. It's also more professional, in my opinion. For those that don't like panty hose they do make stockings that stay up on their own .... or you can get your significant other's attention by doing a garter belt.

OH Gosh...I hope not! we've been having unbearable heat here in N. Texas and I can't imaging having to wear hose again; I'd never be in dresses.

I personally LOVE sheer panty house and I'm not a fan of bare legs...probably because I am very pale.

In a word, NO. At least, not here, not now. We are on Day 19 this year, at or over 100 degrees. The only thing that could induce me to wear pantyhose right now is good manners/protocol for a private audience with the Queen.

I'm certainly not going back to sheer hose as long as it's warm enough to have bare legs (with Jergens Natural Glow a few days a week to take the white glare off them).

I always wear sheer hose with dresses and skirts... I think they add a certain class and sexuality to your look.

We've been getting our own taste of 100+ here in PA for a couple of days now.
