Okay, so we are big fans of Kate Middleton and her elegant on-tour wardrobe. Truly. But we simply can't ignore her hosiery habit anymore! The Duchess has a penchant for beige (shiny!) stockings — even wearing a pair on her big day. Now we understand being new to the Royal fam Kate may want to err on the conservative side, but we've noticed other young, hot pins following suit. Sister Pippa Middleton is a fan of nude stockings, as is Mischa Barton on occasion. Whilst Kate may just want to keep warm, we think that for a budding style icon like Kate the only age-appropriate leg wear should come in black, 180 denier. We want to put this fashion faux pas to the people, so to tell us; are Kate's beige stockings a middle-aged mistake? Or do you think a pair of nude sheers are appropriate for the Duchess?
