AOL members want Nylon Stockings Back

By complete accident I ran across a great collection of 30 Things You Wish Could Make a Comeback on AOL.com this morning. Amongst things to be expected in 2008 like cheap gas and old fashioned MTV (you know, when they actually showed music videos 24/7) we were delighted to see that nylon stockings made the list.

Now, we at StockinGirl already know that nylon stockings are back and have been for a while. So with one of those 30 items checked off - which should comeback next? My favorites from the list are rotary phones, drive-in movie theaters, coke in glass bottles, CBS Radio Mystery Theater, and big wheels.

See all 30 items here.

Though the idea of wearing wool tights right now makes me sweat, I do love the idea of sheer printed thigh highs to add just a little something special to my summer outfits. I found this great example on Face Hunter:

Candid: from Just Glitter Lust



Though I'm not sure about the over-sized t-shirt and bike shorts, I love the bright tights combined with fantastic shoes. A perfect example of how open-toed shoes can work with tights. Image from: Just Glitter Lust. I'd wear them with a simple black dress.
