Back Seam Stockings For Work

Back Seam Stockings For Work

"Dear VienneMilano,
My name is Julia and I’m a Marketing Director from a small .com company, based in Chicago. As a person who loves all things retro, I have been tempted to wear back seam stockings to work. However, I’ve been reluctant in doing so as I’m afraid that back seam stockings may be considered a fashion faux pas in corporate environment. Can you tell me if back seam stockings are appropriate for work? And if so, what’s the best way to style them?"
– Julia M.

Back seam stockings: a modern way to creating a perfect silhouette reminiscent of the 1950s. Featuring a delicate knitted vertical seam that runs from the top of your hosiery down to the toe, providing a touch of retro glamor – To help with Julia's question, we reached out to renowned stylists, fashion bloggers, and experts for their advice:

"Generally speaking, nude toned back seam stockings are appropriate for work (Office settings, creative vocations). I recommend wearing back seam stockings with a short to medium height heel or knee height fashion boot." - Mary Winkenwerder, Beauty Expert, Beautereport.

"I personally love back-seam stockings. I love that from the front they appear to be regular nylons, so I can meet with colleagues and clients while still presenting myself as a traditional young professional, but that tell tale line up the back of my leg is subtle enough to waver between classic, retro and sexy. They don’t give too much away but for those paying attention; they can be a great conversation piece. They are intriguing to a new generation for their simple sexiness. I can wear them to work and still be completely appropriate in my professional environment." - Chris, CoFounder of Heel and Toes.
Not only are back seams appropriate for work, but it’s also important to make sure the seam is straight.

"When I went to school in Europe, there were no non-back seam stockings; we always had to make sure the seams were straight. It was not cool to have them [the back seam] crooked, not even a millimeter!" - Adeodata Czink, Founder of Business of Manners.

Michelle Freiberg, Founder of She's Not So Basic shares this fabulous outfit. She believes that matching a black turtleneck with a knee length pencil skirt and pointed toe pumps will add just the right amount of sexiness:
