When I saw stockings on the spring runways, (at Prada and D&G in particular), my heart fluttered a little and I crossed my fingers in the hopes that Canadian fashionettes would take this look to the sidewalk. However, the femmes up here are still happily esconced in boho chic, and I suspect stockings are another year or two off. So, I'm turning to Tokyo for some stockinspiration, where this style has obviously become the slutty, nylon version of ugg boots.
I do think the garters are a bit much though. It takes the lingerie-as-outerwear look from sexy to tacky. Even this femme's Chanel accessories can't redeem it. Some things should be reserved for the bedroom (and/or that cringeworthy garter bite off event that so many people seem to work into their weddings). In fact with the exception of strippers, who obviously need a place to store their tips, I think garters could be done away with altogether.
