Can Seamed Stockings Make a Fashion Statement?

While I'm not much of a fan of stockings myself (although sexy, the whole business of wearing a garter belt and hooking things confuses me), I do like the look of seamed stockings. I agree with Agathe from Stylebytes that they can have an understated sexiness and a little bit of class paired with a knee length skirt and button up shirt. They also can be fun in the evening to spice up an outfit. I spotted this stylish girl in the subway with shiny pink black seamed stockings paired with a black mini and boots and thought it was really cute. I can say that everyone's eyes were glued to her legs, incuding mine. Whether it was good attention or bad attention, I think everyone at least appreciated her boldness!

You can buy this look, and other varieties of seamed stockings, at Stockingirl. Stockingirl has their "Marissa" seamed stocking in a variety of colors, including pink, turquoise, burgundy, nude, and black. Stockingirl also carries a wide variety of garter belts to hold up your stockings, my favorites being the ones that match their lingerie sets - so cute!

If you like the look, but you don't want to go the stocking route, Stockingirl also offers seamed thigh highs (stay up on their own) and seamed pantyhose.
