Hosiery: Now an important accessory
Legwear has become an important accessory in its own right, offering a variety of colours, patterns and textures, an expert has commented.

Writing for the Washington Post, fashion reporter Holly E Thomas said it can be difficult to know how best to pair up various tights with different outfits.

She suggested that the style-conscious should combine flat shoes with bolder hosiery , particularly if wearing patterned tights which are similar to the design of the footwear.

When wearing "head-turning heels", the writer noted textured tights in a subtle colour can pull the outfit together.

Ms Thomas also suggested combining legwear for an alternative look.

"Besides adding warmth, layering tights and socks makes for a fun , bohemian look. How to keep things from getting too bulky? Try footless tights, which provide coverage sans crowding," she advised.

Hosiery fans looking for some patterned tights inspiration following these suggestions may want to draw inspiration from recent catwalk offerings such as Vivienne Westwood's punky star-spangled tights.
