Not long ago the team at What Katie Did announced they were experimenting with nylons to find a shade we women of colour have been craving...
Behold the glory that is Nutmeg!
Nutmeg/Black Seam on the gorgeous Velvet Jones
They're available in the usual black and nude seam, PLUS glamour seams! On the website there are Claret, Green, Nude and Black seams available - shop here.
We know it's difficult to establish if a shade will work for you from a screen, so we've got a hold of the stockings to show you what they would look like on me and Eva, plus we're not forgetting that WKD has a coffee shade available and the lovely Elora is wearing those for us also.

We are beyond happy with the mid-tone brown that means we can now wear nude stockings from one of our favourite brands!
The welt is fantastic quality as are the toe and heel reinforcements, which should ensure endurance if you continue to stick to the usual care routine for stockings (see them here).
We can't wait for the team at WKD to give us more glamour seams in this glorious new nutmeg shade. Keep an eye on our instagram to see more photos of the stockings and any updates on collections; feel free to pop us a comment on here or a DM in instagram if you have anymore questions about the stockings or want to share your verdict.
Until next time,
The VG xXx
