Canadian plus size fashion blogger 2014 740x1110 How To: Incorporate Any Trend Into Your Wardrobe With One Simple Item

I’ve always found that Spring in Toronto can be quite tricky, it’s either too hot or too cold .The window of opportunity to wear spring clothes can be so small if you blink you’ll miss the entire season.

That’s why I love pantyhose you can wear them practically every season .  Did you know that pantyhose were actually invented by a man in 1959! From the early 60’s to mid nineties pantyhose were  part of  some workplace dress codes. “Love them or hate them, this once ubiquitous accessory was a revolutionary invention that helped transform women’s fashion”.

I have about 30 pairs (seriously) in practically every color, from chartreuse to lilac you name it I have it.  I love pantyhose because you can affordably incorporate any trend into your wardrobe . Now finding good quality plus size pantyhose that’s a different story. I was introduced to Sonsee Woman a luxury hosiery line a  few months ago and I fell in love. I could comfortably put on a pair of pantyhose without squatting or jumping. You can see them in my  previous posts here and here. The dazzling blue tights I’m wearing in this post are from We Love Colors , they have every color in the rainbow but they run small and I would advise you to size up. Pantyhose, hosiery, tights, stockings whatever you call them they have saved my outfits countless times and I can’t live without them.

    I think I already said that your shades are off the hook. You look beautiful as usual and I love the fact that you can pull off all those colorful pantyhoses.

    They are still part of workplace dress codes in many corporations with conservative dress codes. You don’t want to be seen without nylons unless you have the legs to pull it off, and most women in Minneapolis do not have the legs. Even so, for a job interview, they still advise wearing nylons that match, or at least wear trouser socks with your pant suit.
