Pantyhose and Open Toe Shoes Debate

September 18, 2013 under Style

pantyhose and sandals 1Can pantyhose be worn with sandals?  Some fashion experts say yes, some say no. Whoever says “yes” from the fashion world states that such pantyhose should be maximum 10 den for such a summer look.

In the photo here we see the feet of Alexandra Savelyeva, a Russian singer, who participated in a fashion TV program and addressed the subject.

In that show, together with the host, Max Chernitsov (fashion designer), they came to a conclusion that in the summer pantyhose and sandals are fine as long as there are no seams showing and they match closely to the skin tone of the wearer.

Another popular Russian stylist said that pantyhose with open toe shoes is OK as long as it is ultra sheer, 5 – 8 den, so it doesn’t look  heavy.  However, on the runway from time to time we see women in opaques marching with open-toe shoes.

I guess that Alexandra (Sasha) Savelyeva followed such advice and actually wore barely there skin tone pantyhose with a mini dress to an event.  The photo displayed here of her wearing a dress and peep toe shoes is from there.

But she got criticized beyond belief by other people who said that if she dared to wear a mini, she should also dare to go with bare legs.  Perhaps they didn’t watch that show! I’d rather focus on the fact that her shoes and her dress don’t go so well together.

What is your opinion on sandals worn with pantyhose?

    It depends on the model of the sandals and it is never ok to wear thick pantyhoses in a pair of sandals.

    For me that’s perfectly fine. I like the look of pantyhose with sandals even when the seam can be seen. Pantyhose make the legs look so much smoother and sexier.

  • Mikel says:

    A lady wearing smooth and nice hoses with sandals divides itself perfectly from a young or “young” woman with bare legts – and what do you want with a look-a-like-girl? Bare legs may follow behind – okay, but first…hahaha…

    I wear sheer pantyhose under my jeans with open toe sandals all summer… very few people notice – and I actually like the look, as well as the way it feels… As far as the female models, I think they look fantastic either way!

  • Jenn says:

    I’m in two minds about wearing pantyhose with sandals, a lot depends on the style of the sandal and whatever else a woman is wearing as well as the pantyhose being sheer enough not to be overly noticeable. Several times this summer I spotted shorts and capris with pantyhose and sandals and it just didn’t look right.

      I saw women wear men’s hiking sandals and pantyhose in the summer, looks awful!

      In Eastern Europe I saw a lot of ladies with nice shoes and pantyhose actually and some didn’t mind the reinforced toe showing.

    Unfortunately, I think the pantyhose and sandal ship has pretty much sailed in North America. I remember, not so long ago, that the standard cocktail party outfit for women was the “little black dress”, ultra sheer black pantyhose and stroppy black sandals. Tres sexy!

    • admin says:

      Yes, I agree, we don’t see much of that anymore.
      I was just watching a show yesterday from Russia where they said that it is ok to wear with sandals as long as it’s a sheer toe and very sheer hose – 5 or 8 den.

    I SAY, IT REALLY DEPENDS ON HOW A WOMEN’S FEET LOOK. SMALL PETITE PRETTY FEET WITH PAINTED TOES IN A CLASSY STRAPY HIGH HEEL SANDAL WITH A HIGH QUALITY PAIR OF NYLONS IS MIND BLOWING SESY!!! BUT A WOMAN WITH HAMMER TOES NEEDS TO HIDE EM IN A CLOSE TOE PUMP PLEASE!!
    I AGREE ABOUT A LIGHT DEN. BLACK ON BLACK LOOKS SUPER HOT WITH OPEN TOE HEELS AND LIGHT BLACK HOSE AS WELL!! BUT…I LOVE WOMEN IN NYLON TOO, SO I’M BIASED!!
