Tights "key" to autumn fashions
It is not too early to begin considering next season's fashions and the word on the catwalk is that legwear will be a "key" feature of 2008's autumnal styles.

New York's Fashion Week showcased the styles likely to hit the high street over the next 12 months and skirts with flamboyant tights and stockings will be all the rage as the weather cools, the Star Tribune reports.

"Hosiery was key, including bright tights under short shorts or fishnet stockings held up by garters," it noted.

Erin Fetherston showed a bolder design style at the New York fashion fest, exhibiting bolder tights in dark hues as part of the "current tights trend", the newspaper continued.

The Canadian Press also attended the fashion preview, reporting that shorts with tights and mini-dresses with legwarmers will be part of a trend likely to knock the socks off duller legwear this year.

Women who bought opaque tights last season could find they gain a further year's wear out of them, it added.
