Laddered tights trend is 'overrated'
Many people love the trend of laddered tights, by the look of things.

Despite this, one journalist sees right through the trend, lambasting the holey hosiery style.

Hadley Freeman, the writer of all things fashion with the Guardian, explained that she understands the thinking behind going out in laddered tights, stating that it's similar to when she's going out without brushing her hair - though she is being purposefully "self-deceiving".

She continued: "I fear that these purveyors of the lame ladder really do think that they look sexily subversive, when the fact is, I just haven't brushed my hair and they just have a ladder in their tights."

Ms Hadley added that people can make the trend even worse by wearing nothing other than leggings or tights when carrying off this look, reminding people that it looks stupid and is way too revealing.

Unladdered tights were recently promoted by ex-judge from Strictly Come Dancing Arlene Phillips, who told the Daily Mail that she always opts for tights with dresses as they give a person's figure a "lovely line".
