At what age do your girls start to wear nude stockings? Asking from a fashion standpoint as opposed to a halacha perspective.

Please state location for frame of reference. Thanks!

My daughters also began around age 10, fifth grade. At that point knee socks just started to look funny on them with their Shabbos clothes and Shabbos shoes. Nude just looked right. I always find the stage between short ruffled Shabbos socks and nude tights (which is between ages 6 and 10 for girls on our family) to be tricky, knee socks just don't look as good with a lot of Shabbos clothes, but nude tights don't look right to me on such a little girl.

Started the summer going into 6th grade. Flatbush yeshivish. Girls seem to start either that year or the next year- going into 7th. After that is already really nerdy to still be wearing white socks.
I have friends in lakewood who have told me their dd's started really young. like 8 years old! In my crowd that would look really strange.

I'm trying to think. I think DD (13) started two summers ago, going into 6th.

My daughter in 5th grade has been asking to start.

What are the girls wearing? Knee highs? Anyone have online links?

In 5th grade my DD still wore knee socks matched to her Shabbos outfits. They were generally a finer knit than her weekday socks.

We started Pesach of 5th grade. She wears Memoi sheer tights as do her friends. Knee highs look silly with a short skirt because you end up seeing the top of the sock when the skirt rides up. If she's wearing midi then knee highs could work.

And yes, nude tights will rip consistently every Shabbos on a girl that age. We call them "disposable tights" in my house.

My girls don’t start wearing nude until about seventh grade. I don’t like the way it looks on younger kids. Also, I think it depends on the size of the kid.

LET CHILDREN BE CHILDREN

For the awkward stage between socks and hose, can girls just do what non Jewish girls do and wear sandals with nothing (close toed sandals for tznius if necessary), and white or black tights when it isn't warm? Or is that just not a thing in these communities and so you can't do it?

Totally not a thing. It's considered not tznius.

In certain chassidish communities kids don’t wear socks (short or even knee socks) past preschool or even earlier. They wear tights only . In these circumstances they will often put on nude tights earlier because white tights (in summer) can look pretty odd on a 9 year old
