I am 52 and have a black pair of capris I bought for work. Since it is spring and my legs are still pale, is it ok to wear hose with the capris? What about hose with Bermuda shorts? Teresa
Capris or any shorts should not be worn with hosiery. Yes, some teens wear opaque hose with short-shorts, but that is a junior trend that is meant to shock.
Capris and Bermuda shorts are casual attire and look best in warm weather with bare legs. Adding hose will age you. I’d suggest you try some self-tanner instead.
There is possibly one exception to all of this. The odd time you come across a dressy capris. In this case, you might be able to get away with a very sheer for hose and a closed toe pump or wedge. Even a flat closed-toe shoe is excellent. It’s hard to pull off, though. You are better off waiting for warmer weather and getting a bit of color on your legs.
