This wardrobe essential can fly on the red carpet, Sunday morning service or a baby shower. It all depends on how you choose to style it.

Never have cool and classy been well suited to be used together than in defining the pairing of an LBD and a pair of stockings. For best results, ditch patterned stockings for plain black ones and accessorize with a statement handbag. This is like using one stone to kill two birds, as you stay stylish and warm at that overcooled restaurant or party.
