I was at dinner tonight and a woman came in wearing a beautiful pastel print, with a white background, dress. She also was wearing white shoes and off black hose.

You are absoluteley right. Dark hose with white shoes is wrong. Shoes should not be a lighter color than stockings. She should have either worn black shoes or she should have worn neutral hose. Neutral hose would make the most scence in this case plus it goes with the dress better.

I agree...something about that just doesn't sound quite right.

Where did this women get her fashion sense from? Streetwalking 101? I think that looks so trashy, it even looks worse than a middle aged woman with white stockings. Personally I have never been a fan of off black hose anyway, it is gray people not black! Ok so I am a bit vacal here but sometimes I wonder if these women bother to look in the mirror before they leave the house.

Personally, I'm wondering about the age of the woman and the print of the dress. If it is more art-deco, funky shapes, mod ect. the white shoes with the black hose could work. I'm not saying, I'd wear it, but fashion is suppose to be adventurous and fun. The contrasting colors can make an out fit look funky and edgy. But it all depends on the style effect she was shooting for.

It was the type of dress you would wear to a garden party. The print was floral, and very pretty, but the off black stockings did nothing for the dress, especially since the background was white, as were her shoes. The stockings should definitely have been neutral, such as suntan or taupe.
