Q. I know that black patent shoes are big for fall. What type of hosiery should be paired with black patent shoes? It used to be considered a fashion faux pas to pair black tights or black hose with black patent leather shoes. Is this still the case?
A. Where did you hear that fashion faux pas? I must have been too young to dress myself when that faux pas was discussed. Now that patent is such a huge trend for Fall and opaque tights are blazing a trail and finding space in everyone’s drawer, it’s time to enjoy your black patent with just about any color tight depending on what you’re wearing on the rest of your body.
When you want smooth, wear solid opaque tights; when you want edgy, choose a pattern or textured tight with your patent heels.
