Sheer Vs. Opaque

Just recently, I wore sheer hosiery with my ugly clothing. I felt a little weird. Sometimes the outfit is to blame, and not the hosiery, but I cannot help but wonder if it is actually the sheer hosiery. After all, we are not going to always have days where we want to wear awesome clothing. Sometimes we really have to put on whatever is clean and go with it.

Another thing to consider is that women typically wear sheer clothing. This means that sheer hosiery is much more feminine than opaque hosiery. If you look at Shakespearean clothing, then you will notice that many/all of the styles are opaque. If you look at female clothing, throughout the centuries, sheer clothing tended be worn by women.

Does this mean that we are not able to wear sheer clothing? We could wear it, but it will take a lot more work.

We need to take an unbiased look at styles of clothing that are not in the mainstream. Take turbans, for instance. They have been around for a while. People continue to wear them boldly, just as we wear hosiery boldly. Somehow, people still do not want to wear either.

I think that it will be a lot longer, before we ever break into the mainstream.
