Question for the Ladies

Hi;

I live in the Caribbean and I'm going to vegas on Jan 2, 2010. I have a very limited amount of winter clothing, mostly pants and tops which I wear when I go home to Canada. However, I would like to wear dresses when in Vegas and have not worn pantyhose or stockings in a donkey's age! Will I look stupid in bare legs in the casino's, theatres and restaurants? Obviously if it is cold outside I will dress appropriately while outside but inside are bare legs ok?

You will see 20somethings in micro-minis and bare legs in the casinos and clubs. Go for it.

I don't know anyone under 30 or 35 who wears pantyhose anymore, but that may be a regional thing. In winter, opaque tights are ok but never pantyhose, and I see bare legs even at work, not just out at night.

I live in California & I can honestly say most women under 60 around here do not wear pantyhose unless with a business suit.

In fact the women who do wear them are the ones who look odd.

Personally I never liked the look of them anyway...who wants dusty looking or see thru black legs?

In all my trips to Vegas I have seen all manner of dress and not weaaring panyhose will not make you stupid at all.

Just go, have fun, and wear what you are comfortable in :-)

Agreed with above post. You will not be out of the norm, not wearing them.

Thanks,

I guess I've been away too long! Didn't notice pantyhose slipping off the radar!

Going out tomorrow night in a dress, mini boots, and no pantyhose!

Don't know anyone who wears stocking these days, unless it is legging/tights.

You will see plenty of scrunchies and fanny packs but it doesn't mean it's right!

I rarely pull out pantyhose anymore...tights even with my business suits. I did wear tights a couple times in Vegas but the outfits called for them.

And good for you, leaving the cold country and moving to T&C!

Well, now I feel old! I wear tights or stockings because I get cold without them but it's up to the individual. Just wear what makes you comfortable - you can always buy a pair there if you get too cold.

A few of us from TA sat having drinks in Zuri at MGM and watched the 20-somethings going round the casino in teeny tiny tops and skirts. I expect all the men thought they looked great, we just thought they must be freezing!

Don't forget to pack a jacket or something warm for the theatre and restaurants as they can be really cold.

I have a love/hate relationship with pantyhose! LOL! I rarely wear skirts or dresses, so I most often wear my killer heels with my business suit pants or jeans and a dressy top. I can't just simply slip my feet into shoes for some reason. I always need hose. And I always tear them to ribbons! Grrr...

But in Vegas...I would go with bare legs...
