Who doesn’t love a good striped stocking?
The Georgians, Victorians, and Edwardians sure did! Striped stockings of various colors – some loud, some more demure – have been in fashion for several hundred years now, right up until today. Why are we so draw to wearing striped hosiery?

Also wear these stockings for Harry Potter cosplay, Halloween, or just because they’re freakin’ awesome. Check them out:
The End. <3
