Sheer tights sales boosted by Kate

Whatever the Duchess of Cambridge wears, people want. And that doesn't just go for her dresses, coats and hats, her legwear is also highly coveted leading to a huge boost in sales of sheer tights this year.

Kate is rarely seen without her trusty tights, with Grazia magazine suggesting she only went bare-legged at two public appearances this year.

Figures show that sales of nude tights have increased by a massive 500% in the last 12 months and their popularity shows no signs of waning.

Tatler's editor Kate Reardon, told Grazia: "Up to about 20 years ago, it was seen as a bit trashy not to wear tights at all times, while the rest of the world has moved on - revelling in advances in hair removal and self-tan - posh Englishwomen have clung to them doggedly."

And if sheer tights aren't really your thing but you still want pins like Kate, the Duchess is also a huge fan on opaque black tights which she is often seen wearing with her favourite boots.
