If there’s one Kate-related issue that is polarizing it is this: pantyhose.
The pantyhose debate (or tights as they are called in some locales) continues to gain traction. It’s been a topic of conversation previously in this space and we thought it might be a good time to revisit the issue *and* get your opinions. The stories have been everywhere, from The Daily Mail to People magazine.
From ABC News:
“For the fashion forward Middleton, sheer pantyhose may seem like a throwback to the 1980s.
More than likely, Middleton, who pairs the shiny hose with her dresses for official appearances, is following royal protocol than making a fashion choice. But like everything else she touches that turns to gold, Middleton’s embrace of sheer pantyhose has them flying off the shelves in her native U.K.”
“The Duchess’ fashion choices are purposely conservative, but now many are complaining that her fondness for nude pantyhose is hopelessly old fashioned.”
- Wolford’s Naked 8 sheer pantyhose ($30)
- Falke Shelina 12 Ultra Transparent Hipster Tights ($19)
- John Lewis Barely There Non Slip Tights (£5)
From the People story:
“The Duchess seems to have embraced the sheen of sheer pantyhose, a throwback to the 1980s that went the way of the mullet.”
What do you think, is it good to see hose again? Or is it merely nice to know you don’t have to worry about Palace protocol? To say the issue ignites heated discussion would be an understatement; don’t be shy, let us know your thoughts.
Below is our latest poll, we’ll post the results Friday.
