Similar to the perfect little black dress or a sexy pair of sky-high stiletto heels, the perfect nylons are an important part of any retro or pin up outfit. They are made out of a synthetic polymer material, ranging in a variety of thicknesses, styles and colors.

Traditional nylons were typically worn in a nude or skin color to give legs a leaner, smoother more feminine appeal, especially with a knee length or shorter dress. Over time, nylons have ranged in colors from black to brown to brighter colors and patterns to complement the style of the outfit or dress being worn.
Adding nude or black nylons to an outfit can polish it off, turning a dress into a business casual style, even if you intend to wear it out in the evening. Simply take off the nylons for an evening look, or if you’re feeling daring, add in a brightly colored pair for a bold, more fashionable look. Nylons can completely change the look of a skirt or dress, which is one reason why they have been popular for nearly 100 years.
