Black tights should not be thrown away as part of a fashionista's annual wardrobe clear-out, according to a style expert.
Patra Canan of the State News said the popular legwear was able to add a great level of chic to pretty much any outfit, with spring dresses already being converted into winter wear by pairing the two together.
She added that black tights
are able to make legs look longer, particularly when paired with black boots.
Ms Canan concluded: "Black is typically a universally flattering colour and what goes over them, be it a dress or shorts, is up to you but a clean, classic look is always in season."
Couture in the City picked up on this trend long ago, highlighting how celebs such as Cate Blanchett, Gwyneth Paltrow and Hilary Duff all loved the fashion.
