Women wanting to avoid the chance of "drowning in a sea of predictable dresses" should invest in some hosiery in the coming days and weeks, according to a leading newspaper north of the border.
The Scottish Daily Record explained that by adopting an "eye-popping print" or particularly bright colour can turn out to be a "fashion lifebuoy", whether it is a hot pink prom dress or something harnessing animal prints such as zebra.
It continued: "Flaunting a full-on shade or stand-out print requires serious attitude to pull it off with conviction. You can always tone down the show-off stakes with a black blazer and black tights
Of course, women wanting that extra edge may consider looking into the perfect little black dress, allowing for a little more glamour without being too risky at the big event.

, any investment in legwear this season is a great one, so long as they aren't boring.
