Article: Whether Or Not Hosiery Should Be Required

Here is an old article, from 2009, about whether or not women should wear hosiery in the office. Read the remainder of the blog entry for my response.

I tend to disagree with the overall advice, in that I always recommend hosiery for all formal situations, and most casual situations. You could even wear footless hosiery at the beach. It just looks weird. That being said, I do respect the article and the people involved, because they do take a relatively balanced approach to the topic. The issue is not about comfort only, but also about sending a message that we are being formal, and the people in the article do address that issue.

The best quote of all is from Toronto-based image consultant Anne Sowden: Men wear socks when they go to the office no matter how hot it is..
