Prints, Textures, And More! A Look Back On Stocking Variations

Posted on November 6th in Blogroll, stockings, vintage. No Comments

We’re back this week with some more interesting facts about the history of stockings. We’ve talked before about their origins which date way back to the Renaissance age, but what most of us are striving to recreate are the looks from the 20’s-50’s.

And man, are we grateful for that movement! We recognize the flapper uniform usually by the iconic dress with tassels that move and shake with your body, usually accompanied by fishnet stockings, or stockings with a backseam.… Read more
