When All Black is All Wrong

Taylor Momsen

Paris Hilton

Ashlee Simpson

Nicole Richie

Frequent fashion violators like Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, and Ashlee Simpson have been wearing a trend theSkinnyStiletto deems overdone.  These girls often pair opaque black stockings with black shoes.  Black stockings look elegant when they’re sheen and/or have piping down the backs of the legs à la Bettie Page.

Nowadays, women just wear dark tights that don’t give any meaning to the words shape, style, or sexy.  Ladies end up looking childish, and the outfit gets lost when the eye can’t distinguish leg from stiletto.  The shoes don’t stand out (no matter how gorgeous or expensive they are) and the women end up appearing like they have stumps, instead long, beautiful legs.

Leighton Meester as "Blair"

How to Wear this Trend: Take note from Victoria Beckham or Leighton Meester, who’ve mastered patterned black stockings.  Also, Victoria’s Secret offers a great selection of sheer black hosiery. But don’t copy Taylor Momsen… She looks like she just finished working her shift on that sidewalk.
