New legwear look 'spells double trouble'
Women hoping to follow in the footsteps of leggy blonde supermodel Heidi Klum may want to wear two pairs of opaque tights instead of just the one, according to a fashion site.

FabSugar said that although sheer tights are "de rigueur", opaques could go with pretty much anything and could protect a person against the harsh weather that winter brings.

Citing the model's use of double tights, FabSugar said: "This trick is also useful for those who want to keep their legs super warm. It's almost like wearing pants. My only complaint is that it squishes your toes."

Although something more festive like ladies' Christmas socks may be more of a seasonal hosiery option, doubling up on tights could give you the upper hand in the fashion stakes on a cold evening.

Heidi Klum recently recreated the sock-wearing dance scene from Risky Business in an advert for the new multi-platform game, Guitar Hero: World Tour.
