Hosiery: Brave, bold and bright
Further furious fashion debate has been filling the style pages following the various hosiery haute couture offerings at the New York and London Fashion Weeks.

Reporter and clothing guide Tricia Woolfenden assembled a collection of "fabulous" style gurus to help her discuss designer's efforts in her blog the New Black.

The experts discussed the new tight trends unveiled recently, particularly the new fashion for bright and neon legwear.

One scathingly asserted that such tights could only be worn "carefully or perhaps after a few drinks".

However, another added: "The bright tights are an easy and fun way to step up an outfit. More!!"

Ms Woolfenden herself agreed that "fun socks, textured tights and crazy legwear" could be great but expressed a concern that bright red legs would look short.

Regardless of whether everyone likes them, the trend for dazzlingly bright legs is spreading globally.

Hong Kong newspaper the Standard has been highlighting the trend for bold, bright colours to its readership, meaning women across the planet could be sporting the brave new look this autumn.
