Opaques 'no longer taboo' as eveningwear
Opaque tights are widely regarded as one of the essential parts of a girl's wardrobe, with the style now becoming a la mode in the evenings, according to one fashionista.

Denver Fashion Examiner's Renee Mudd broke down the ideal things to wear at a holiday party, highlighting the wonders hosiery can do for an ensemble this winter.

She said: "Black and even bright colored opaque tights are no longer taboo for evening.

"Adding a pair [...] to any cocktail dress not only keeps your legs warm, it adds a hint of style to your everyday cocktail dress."

Ms Mudd also noted that accessories could make or break an outfit, with statement necklaces and stand-out jewellery more than welcome on a get-up.

According to Cynthia Nellis of About.com, showing too much skin is a no-no at parties this Christmas, with the trend very hard to carry off outside of the movie screen.
