Bare legs can be a hot-button issue. Some companies forbid them during any month with a vowel in the name, while others allow them year-round, come rain, snow or heat. However, as with anything when it comes to bare skin, it's best to err on the side of caution and keep your legs discreetly covered. On the other side of the coin are the overtly sexy, garish and cutesy varieties of hosiery. Serious professionals steer clear of fishnets, distractingly bright colors and unbusinesslike patterned tights.
