Tights central to "ad-hoc experiments"
A famous style icon and journalist has emphasised the development of individuality in fashion, finding legwear to be part of new trends, it has emerged.

Writing for the Financial Times, fashionista Daphne Guinness earmarked tights and leggings as helpful in developing a style belonging to the individual that wears them, depending on what they combine their hosiery with.

Ms Guinness added that now it only took a short stroll in a city such as London or New York - even just browsing a fashion blog - to see two opposing "ad-hoc experiments" employing legwear as part of the style.

She continued that in New York, one may find someone in "very tight, very shrunken jackets and trousers, and then you jump to another and see a different type of person wearing an oversized shirt, belted with silver tights".

Daphne Guinness donated a selection of her unused haute couture items to auction to support the Womankind charity in April, Luxist reported earlier this year. ADNFCR-1412-ID-18739865-ADNFCR
