While opaque tights may offer ease and practicality, fashion dictates that they are soon to become unacceptable except for summery outfits, it has been claimed.

Susannah Frankel of the Independent has highlighted the growing haute couture trend is for sheer black tights.

Even the sheer pop sock has emerged as must-have hosiery, the fashion writer continued.

Women keen to keep up with such fashions must ensure their legs are toned, trim and "blemish free", she urged.

"Fortune favours the bold and there is no question that anyone wearing sheer tights from henceforward, or, come the sun, pop socks instead ... must be applauded," Ms Frankel added.

The Times reported that the most recent fashion offerings of Chanel included many throw-backs to the 80s, including sheer tights - "another piece of Big Bang nostalgia".

Chanel has combined tulip-shaped skirts with a slightly longer jacket and sheer black tights this season, the newspaper's fashion editor Lisa Armstrong notes.
