Style Verdict: Stockings with Open Toe Shoes?

Bomb reader Cherise wrote in recently with a burning question. She said, “What’s the rule on pantyhose and open-toe shoes?”

The short answer? Rock it.
Though I wouldn’t personally be as adventurous as Ms. Minaj with pink tights, I think wearing black or sheer stockings with peep or open toes is totally fine. Traditionally it’s a no-no and closed toes are preferred, but what else are you going to do with your open toed booties or suede peep toes in the winter?

If you’re very self conscious about wearing colored tights with open toes, then wear a sheer or nude colored stocking to give off the illusion of a bare leg.

Just make sure your pantyhose are as close to your skin tone as possible (so nothing looks off).
That’s just my opinion, but I’d love to hear what you guys have to say.
What do you think–can one rock stockings with open toe shoes?
