Michelle Obama doesn’t wear pantyhose, so neither should anyone else

Michelle Obama doesn’t wear pantyhose, so neither should anyone else

The latest in First World problems: the decline of pantyhose because Michelle Obama doesn’t wear them. The First Lady is not the only woman to shun nylons; a trend piece in The Charlotte Observer (obviously they’ve never heard of mantyhose in South Carolina) points to women working in banks who are avoiding them because the risk of runs defeats the intention of making legs look silkier. On the other hand, an “executive stylist” (a very niche job title, by the way) says wearing hose is still a must for women in powerful positions, like Hillary Clinton. “You’re never going to see them without hose on. It’s like a man in a three-piece suit with lace-up shoes and no socks.” Hear that, ladies? Aspiring first ladies should go bare-legged, while future secretaries of state should stock up on nylons.
