As the temperature heats up, clients regularly ask for advice on the question of whether it’s OK to not wear tights in the office. We’re all tempted to lose them when the temperature goes above 20 degrees.
My view is that a senior woman not wearing tights in the office tends to look unprofessional because very few women over a certain age have unblemished legs.
I think about it in the same terms as a man not wearing socks.
If you want to find something reasonably cool to wear, Wolford do a very nice sandal toe tight that is very sheer – called Naked 8 (pictured below). They are lightweight but quite durable if you wash them carefully – and a very good standby when the weather gets very hot.
