Stockings for Summer

Stockings for Summer

Coco Chanel once said:

"Dress shabbily, and they remember the dress; dress impeccably, and they notice the woman."

– But how does one dress impeccably, you may ask? The answer is by adding stockings to your ensemble. For us at VienneMilano, we believe that luxury hosiery will reveal your style and sophistication – we highly recommend wearing stockings for special occasions, especially for events where first impressions matter.

Summer is the season for celebration. From weddings to graduations, it's that time of year when you need to dress to impress. Lightweight material is ideal for warm weather. The unit of measure for hosiery is called "denier", and we recommend stockings within 10 – 20 deniers for summer. Here's a list of our top 5 favorites – the best stockings for summer:

Sheer stockings

Adorned by women all over the world, sheer stockings are a classic fashion accessory. Ideal for formal events such as weddings and graduations (and even funerals), this style of hosiery goes best with formal dresses.

Black sheer tights

We recommend ISABELLA – available in multiple colors and plus-sizes.

Back seam stockings

Similar to sheer hosiery, back-seam stockings are also considered to be a classic. This vintage style of hosiery adds a touch of femininity – allowing you to command the attention you deserve, no matter how formal or informal the occasion may be. Traditionally, back seam hosiery are worn with dresses and skirts, but we believe that shorts also work.

Vintage back seam tights

We recommend ALBA – available in multiple variations and plus-sizes.


Over the past five years, fishnets have made a significant comeback in the fashion world. Although we do not recommend this style of hosiery for formal occasions, we do believe that it's perfect for summer events such as block parties, or the occasional summer get-togethers with friends. Fishnets can be paired with skirts, dresses, and shorts. Add a pop of color to your outfit with colorful fishnets.

Hot pink fishnets

We recommend GIORGIA – available in many fabulous colors and plus-sizes.

Lace stockings

Similar to fishnets, lace stockings bring texture and color to your legs. However, unlike fishnets, lace tights tend to be more elegant and are more appropriate for formal parties.

We recommend OTTAVIA.

Stockings for garter belts

A long time ago, women had to wear garter belts with stockings as it kept their hosiery in place. While this is no longer the case, today, many women choose to wear garter belts for sex appeal. Unlike pantyhose, garter belts and stockings do not entirely cover up your lower body, making it more suitable on summer days. Garter belts and stockings can be worn underneath dresses and skirts.

We recommend LUANA.

Generally speaking, pantyhose are not comfortable to wear. Wearing pantyhose in hot humid weather is even worst – which is why we recommend thigh highs as it provides a cooler solution.
