Q. I have a semi-formal evening wedding to which I am wearing a knee length black and white skirt and black formal halter top. It’s in the South at a country club. Do I have to wear hose with my sandal? What kind of sandals would you suggest?
A. Skip the hose. Stylish southerners know that when the heat is on, hose just makes y’all sticky and constricted. Choose a mid to high heel to give the appearance of having longer legs. And certainly with hotter temperatures and it being a festive occasion, go for a strappy black or silver sandal with perhaps extra details like satin fabric, a small bow or even a few small rhinestones. And get yourself a pretty pedicure in a soft nail color—no blaring reds.
