Confession: I hate stockings. There, I said it. I hate the way they suffocate my tummy. I hate when they fall into a drop crotch. I hate that the slightest scratch leaves a ladder. And boy do I hate when they make whatever is layered on top go static. While I appreciate they are a vital staple in most women's wardrobes, stockings and I are not friends.
It's not all bad though. My broken relationship with tights forced me to get creative and develop a substitute. Enter the midi skirt and over-the-knee boot combination.
Not only have I found this pairing to be equally as warm as stockings (if not more so), it looks elevated and fresh. In the depths of Winter I add a turtleneck and coat and on those warmer Winter days, a tee and leather jacket does the trick.
