Tights 'can restyle that old dress'
Jazzing up last season's seemingly defunct dress may be easier than you think, according to a fashion writer.

The Houston Chronicle's Joy Sewing said that versatile little black dresses were particularly good for accessorising with, noting that tights are one of the best things to invest in to get extra mileage out of an old outfit.

She said: "Coloured tights are a hit this season. Why not carry the look into the holiday?

"For a little attitude, go for a bright colour such as engine red or electric blue."

Ms Sewing also recommended investing in a belt to go around the dress or a coloured scarf around the waist or over the shoulders to give the look both edge and colour.

Stockings were recently in the public eye when burlesque star Dita von Teese posed in German Playboy in little else other than her beloved hosiery.
