Why not pantyhose with open-toe high heels II?


Update:  As of May 15, 2010, 74 of you had voted on the poll attached to the original post I wrote on this subject in January.  Of those, 72 (97 percent) chose the answer, “Absolutely! Yes, please.”   So only 2 of the 74 cast a “No” vote.   That begs the question:  What monkey came up with the rule that one should NEVER wear pantyhose with open-toe high heels?

I like it when you agree with me.   Good job with that.

Perfect

Thank you to those who wrote comments about my January post, “Why not pantyhose with open-toe high heels?”

I try to be relevant, if not compelling, in this blog — hoping to get more of you involved in it.   I really thought more of you would weigh in about pantyhose with dress sandals because my research showed that so many women absolutely believe this is a fashion no-no. 

Well, of the whole six (yeah, six) comments I got about my post in January that it’s not only OK, but really sexy, to wear pantyhose with open-toe high heels, all of them were positive.  Men and women agreed.

But while I wrote in the first sentence of this post that I like when you agree with me, seriously, it’s OK if you have a different opinion.  The content in this blog is open to debate.

I would just like to know why so many women believe it is wrong to wear pantyhose with open-toe dress shoes.  I think women everywhere believe they should never do this, but I’ve never heard anyone explain why?

Just look at the attached photo (you can expand it by clicking on it).  I dare anyone to say that pantyhose should not be worn with open-toe high heels.

And for those who say that it is unsightly for the (delicate little) seam across the toes to show, I say that that is actually kinda sexy.

Let the debate continue!

Why not pantyhose and open-toe high heels?


Lately, I’ve read several posts on various blogs in which girls are asking for advice about what to wear to a special event.  Often – and I love this – they are open to wearing pantyhose but for the fact that they want to wear some sexy open-toe high heels and believe one is not supposed to wear pantyhose with such shoes.  

Who made that rule? 

While pantyhose of the 1960s predominantly were made with a reinforced heel and toe, beginning in the early 1970s, pantyhose evolved to sheer heels and toes, specificially for wear with dress sandals. 

In fact, some pantyhose are so sheer, it can be difficult to tell whether a woman is wearing them with open-toe high heels or not.  And on a TV show or a movie, without a closeup, it’s practically impossible to tell.  

I say it can be beautiful and extremely sexy to wear sheer pantyhose with open-toe high heels.  Pantyhose can make nice legs lethal weapons.  Likewise, they can make nice feet incredibly gorgeous and erotic.   Remember, that’s the whole idea behind pantyhose – they enhance a woman’s natural beauty.  Most guys get that.  Funny how so many girls don’t seem to.    

Always known for wearing exotic outfits on stage, singer Cher, shows her lovely toes in Suntan pantyhose and high heel sandals.

To support my case, I’ve attached this photo for your viewing pleasure. Now, you tell me ….. pantyhose, or no pantyhose, with open toe high heels? 

Want more?  See the gallery I’ve put together for you of a few notable celebrities wearing pantyhose with dress sandals.  (Scroll down below the poll.)
I rest my case. 

Happy New Year, everyone.
