I have expressed my dislike of both on the Forum, but if I am being honest, it is an underlying question that vexes me.

I grew up always wearing hose or nude tights with dresses/skirts. At some point, women started wearing dresses/skirts with bare legs. This never looked right to me in a professional setting. The juxtaposition is jarring to me. I cannot do it. I just can't.

I don't mind wearing hose at all. I find them quite comfortable, but they are so expensive!!!!! I save them for important meetings. And I don't see what I gain by wearing a dress for coolness and then adding hose. It all seems so confusing and contradictory to me.

Thoughts would be appreciated.
