Wear tights with vintage knits for a seasonal look, say experts
Followers of fashion should try pairing chunky tights with vintage clothes as their wardrobe transitions from winter to summer, experts say.

Those interested in the trendy vintage look should pair chunky leg wear with brogues and a vintage dress and knit, according to two experts.

Clare Rees interviews two vintage fans on Wales Online who report that the vintage look is great when transitioning for winter to summer looks.

"Wearing pretty vintage dresses with chunky knit tights, brogues and a chunky vintage knit is a great way to combine vintage and high street between seasons," says Sarah Pellow, 30.

Her friend Reena Pasotra, 27, added that the next big vintage trend is likely to be from the 70s during the summer, after the success of vintage dresses and Christmas jumpers.

This comes after Nancy Won wrote in the Toronto Sun that those braving the winter cold should optimise their body heat by donning good quality socks.

Matt Dellandrea, national training specialist for atmosphere and sport Chek told the paper that good quality polyester, polypropylene or merino wool suck the moisture from feet to avoid them becoming too cold.
