Bold and brash is definitely in vogue this season when it comes to leg wear.
Black opaque tights
should be cast aside in favour of patterned stockings
, which are considered less novelty socks
and more high-end fashion these days, according to Elle.
In a recent feature, the magazine features a range of patterned tights
modelled as part of a number of different outfits, which will no doubt provide those bored with their current legwear
range with some inspiration.
Elle advises fashionistas to "take your style cues from the street" by complementing bold tights
with affordable accessories, shorts and statement footwear.
Recently, the Daily Mail urged women not to be afraid of adopting the emerging "Granny Chic".
The look is characterised by the combination of flesh-coloured tights with mid-length skirts and heavy cardigans, which is now cool for young and stylish women as well as grandmothers.
Sales of these items have apparently sky rocketed across department stores, underlining the popularity of this unusual look.
