Stylish women 'dressing like grannies'
Women may opt for leg wear in the style of their grandmothers, according to one writer.

The Daily Mail has reported that the rise of "Granny Chic" has seen young and stylish women turn to mid-length skirts, heavy cardigans and flesh coloured tights, with some even opting to dye their hair grey.

According to the article, sale of flesh coloured tights at Debenhams has risen by 20 per cent, with sales of round-neck blouses rising by 34 per cent, mid-length skirts 96 per cent and tweed skirts 110 per cent.

On-trend individuals are also opting for low heeled shoes to pair with their tights, according to the report, with sales of the granny-favourite rising by 62 per cent at the department store.

This comes after one expert wrote on the Daily News Journal that those looking for an edgy look should try neutral tights with plaid.
