Legwear now an "it accessory"
Tights are now an important accessory, with many designers fuelling the trend and developing new and exciting legwear crazes, it has been suggested.

Newspaper the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review has announced what many have known for some time, that "legwear has blossomed into an 'it' accessory in its own right".

From "dainty polka-dot" hosiery to cable-knit leggings, tights have never been the subject of greater designer attention and women should "get ready to cast off those basic black opaques".

Women should carefully select shoes which will complement their chosen legwear style, choosing classic flats for bolder colours and heels for textured tights in a neutral colour, it added.

Earlier this month, patterned tights received a glamorous royal look as the Duchess of York wore opaque hosiery complemented by a dark rose pattern crawling up her calf, the Daily Mail reported.

Sarah Ferguson left her tights to do the talking, the rest of her outfit being a dressed-down black skirt and shirt.
