Purple 'the new black' this winter
Purple is the colour for this season according to one newspaper, with the high-impact hue matching a range of clothing that is also chic - including tights.

According to the Drogheda Independent, the Christmas wardrobe will be boring without the introduction of purple, which it highlighted as very complementary to hosiery trends that are dominating the winter market.

It continued: "The introduction of dramatic, contrasting tights can tilt a well-tried outfit into that 'wow' colour category.

"In fact, brightly coloured tights and matching gloves give a va-va-voom to sombre black and autumnal brown coats."

According to Grand Junction Sentinal fashion writer Ivy Parnasius, coloured tights were a "show-stopper" when combined with the right clothing.
