Opaque tights 'to be autumn trend'
Opaque and semi-opaque tights are here to stay through the autumn, one fashion commentator has noted.

Asserting her opinion via online resource The Literary Fashionista, a blogger known as Kanani claims that striped tights, fishnet stockings, shimmer hosiery and patterned tights are all going to be big news as the weather gets a little chillier.

However, she warns that the trend needs to be approached with caution as tights are a dominant part of an ensemble and as such have to be considered carefully.

The legwear lover states that being too "matchy matchy" is unflattering and instead suggests people wear outfits that incorporate a "myriad" of colours and textures which complement one another.

She also recommends teaming striped tights with heels for a leg-lengthening look.

Meanwhile, style reporter Elizabeth Wellington recently commented in the Seattle Times that opaque tights are overtaking sheer hosiery as women's legwear of choice.
