Today I am pleased to announce another interview, this time with the lovely Patrioro from the blog El Armario de Una ShopAddict. I love her style and was so pleased that she agreed to do an interview. She sent me a few photos showing how she styles hosiery with her outfits. I love all of these outfits as they really showcase a wide range of options on how to style hosiery with your outfits. She styles black tights and also styles skintone shades which is something that I think is important to show as some people might feel skintone shades are outdated and no longer in style. But from the photos here, I think it is clearly evident at how nice they can really look on the legs.

There are even hosiery brands like Emilio Cavallini which make tights for men with barbed wire, and even skulls on them. Also French hosiery manufacturer Gerbe, made some with a fly opening.

I find it sexy pantyhose in women but this trend in men I dont like anything.

I'd Tell this person to try several brands as there are some that are itchy, and some that are soft and comfortable.

18. What advice do you have for other females on how to style their pantyhose/tights? How do you style them?
some pantyhose can completely change a look and make it more stylish and original, colour and style of dress is very important for choosing the kind of pantyhose you will wear, for elegant look it is better black non opaque and for day to day more opaque is more functional.

my mother bought me my first pair and since then I love wearing them.
