We have a lot of questions when it comes to getting ready for Prom, but one of the most difficult to wrestle with for pantyhose fans is this: Is it in poor taste to go bare, or will you be the odd one out with a pair of nude stockings under your sparkly dress? Pantyhose are pretty dated.
For the most part, pantyhose are no longer fashionable, and really only seen in work settings where it may be required as part of a uniform. Unless your bare legs are bright orange or polka-dotted, they probably will not clash with your dress.
This makes going bare-legged a safe bet for anyone who is concerned about matching accessories to their dress. That being said, no fashion rule is absolute.
Darker hair may show through the pantyhose yikesand the texture of your stubble can prevent the material from lying flat against your skin— or worse, the hairs will poke through like little knives! There is nothing worse than the deadly combination of cute, open-toed shoes and unsightly stocking toe seam.

On the bright side, your decision to wear pantyhose will act in your favor if you find yourself in ill-fitting pumps. The material will help soak up some of your foot sweat ewin addition to providing a little bit of a barrier between your skin and your shoe.
Stockings make great blister protection. They will make you look like a schoolgirl.
This is a continuation of rule 4, but one that is vital. Pantyhose, unfortunately, are prone to ripping. Closely related to stockings is of course garters.
If you are thinking about wearing a prom garter it will definitely look a lot better on bare skin. Schools often have different trends around wearing a prom garter but generally it is worn on the right leg.
Sometimes they are customized and can feature the school name and the class. It is up to you what you do with your garter but some girls will gift it to the guy who can wear it on his arm.
