Wise County Fashion Poll

After much coaxing this morning, I was able to get this shot of the knee of an unnamed courthouse employee. The issue is: Are these hose appropriate for work with heels and a skirt? She says "no" which is why she hides them under a long skirt and boots. I promised to throw the issue open to my fashion conscious Wise County readers.

No, not professional. But they're really cute, and great for evening/after hours.

The stockings look good and very appropriate for work under boots (only).

Wearing them is not the point. Having someone who appreciates sexy attire remove them is their purpose.

She could be very popular in that office...

#1 question

Why are you looking up her skirt? Otherwise you wouldn't have noticed them if they were covered.

I would prefer them with heels and no skirt!

Completely appropriate with tasteful boots and a solid colored knee length, or slightly above the knee, skirt or dress. No problem!

There are very much in fashion right now. Some people have no clue. Times change.

It's only appropriate for the office if the rest of the outfit is conservative. It's all about balance. Also, they need ankle boots not knee boots. That's my vote.

Female executives, unless she is in the fashion/artsy industry, should not wear patterned or coloured tights to work. However, it is absolutely appropriate for professional, support staff to wear patterned tights to work, in dark neutral colours with small patterns like the one featured in the photo, houndstooth and/or pinstripe so long as they are paired with a skirt of a solid/plain winter weight fabric that is work appropriate length. Keep the top simple along the lines of a plain blouse, simple smooth knit sweater. The tights are what is lending the interest and pattern to the outfit. Patterned tights look especially fetching with shoes that have a minimum of 1.5" heel. NEVER wear patterned tights with flats. Opaque coloured tights with matching flats are very flattering on women with chunky legs and/or short legs. Save the bright colours and wild patterns for looking smart while off the clock.

Just a note, if your legs distort the pattern in the tights, you need a bigger size or stick with solid coloured tights.

In most corporate offices, that employee would have a solid harassment complaint, believe it or not.

She'd need to raise that skirt a whole lot higher for me to make an accurate assessment..... A whole lot higher

We need first to establish are those hose or stockings?

Good grief! I'm almost 50 and the hose are just fine for office/professional dress. If some of you haven't noticed, the corporate world everywhere has become more relaxed with dress codes. I would assume a government office would be even less formal than big corporations. Most large companies any more are mostly business casual. Around here - it is VERY comfortable even in the larger offices in the county.

couldn't you at least let her drop the robe and gavel on the floor in the background?

I can't believe this is an issue. I'd have to see the rest of her and decide then if it's appropriate or not. If she's hot all over, wear what you want. If she's fugly, then this is highly inappropriate.

Those sexy hose can be worn with Daisy Dukes at any lawyers Christmas Party.

totally appropriate. fun tights are equivalent to fun shoes. they can make a day.

Candance said...

Totally fine with boots and a solid skirt. It doesn't even have to be a long skirt. I do it when I sub all the time and no one has complained and at school you can't be too careful these days, especially high school.

A printed skirt would be too much and looking at her would give one a headache. Maybe even cause a seizure.

My God! Is there no subject Mzchief is not an expert on? What a pompous ass.

Being well educated and better informed than you does not make me a pompous ass however, your belief it does just proves my assertion that jealousy is a mental illness.

Get over me being me and LEARN SOMETHING so you are at least slightly less jealous of ME.

How many "female executives" do we really have in Decatur?

They look awesome, aan are quite in style now, especially with boots and a mid-length skirt.

Wearing some with a solid knee length skirt and black boots right now, actually. Let's hope it's appropriate!
