Our vintage ladies know that a little hosiery can go a long way. Our collection of vintage stockings and tights are designed to boost the retro appeal of your outfit without completely stealing the show! Simple but unmistakably vintage in their design, our hosiery collection includes classic styles such as the seamed stocking for our true vintage fashion lovers.
Once upon a time in the 1940s, seamed stockings were the must have item for women. Of course, during wartime the nylon used to make them was repurposed for the war effort and women were left without their favourite hosiery! They would brown their legs with coffee grounds or cocoa powder and draw a seam down the back of their legs with eyeliner to try and get the look while 1940s nylons were in short supply. Lucky for you, there’s no need to start rooting through the kitchen cupboards to stain your legs for a stocking effect! Simply take a look through our collection of vintage stockings by vintage hosiery specialists such as Pamela Mann and get the 1940s look without the hassle.
You can wear vintage stockings and tights with any of our fabulous vintage dresses and retro skirts. If you’re going for a classically vintage look, make sure you choose a slightly longer skirt to hide the tops of your stockings, but if you’re going for the super sexy pinup look feel free to choose a short skirt to give us a sneaky peek at those garters!
