Pantyhose or no pantyhose

The Boston Globe Job Doc board raised an issue I’ve been wondering about lately…. pantyhose or no pantyhose?

Growing up, my father insisted that a properly dressed woman wore nylons with a dress or a skirt. I internalized this lesson, and have done so every since when I’m really dressing up. I’ll wear a summer dress without anything on my legs, and in winter I’d wear tights… but to an interview I would wear nylons for sure.

But I have the growing sense I’m terribly old-fashioned in this. Are nylons only for old-ladies? I know where Posh Spice stands on the issue (from my reading of Glamour: she’s agin it)… but what about you?
